These should be easy

I was hoping you guys and gals could help me ID some of my corals. I am very new to the saltwater world and I keep forgetting what my Local fish guy tells me about the corals.

Pic 1: there are a ton of these (~20)

Pic 2: only 1 of these. Also, because of the way the rock is, it grows sideways. Is this ok for the coral?

Pic 3: this one came in with the rock, I have no idea what it is.

1) - Mushroom, Discosoma sp.

2) - Toadstool Leather, Sarcophyton sp. ~ It'll twist & turn, and probably eventually turn up toward the light.

3) - Button Polyp, Protopalythoa sp.


8)

Thanks! They are a little easier to "capture" than the fish.
