They are acropora. The most difficult to keep.

They aren't like mushrooms. As a matter of fact, there isn't a single mushrom in that tank. All stony corals. Those flat growing ones are actually tightly grouped branches.

Those are Montipora Capricornis. They are also a stony coral, but they are much easier than Acropora.
