Looks like a goniopora, I read that they're tough to keep. I have a pink frag that I'm babying right now! I read that some species require higher lighting and target feeding. I turkey-basted mine some Rods food liquid with cyclopeeze with 2 drops of selcon today, she loved it (as far as I could tell.) Best of luck!

Maybe move it a little higher and try some target feeding, nighttime seems to be better.

The green coral I see looks like a green flowerpot coral to me. It's definitely receding..l

That green coral is not a galaxia. It's a goniopora.

The red one appears to be coralline algae.

Very sorry to bother you, I see you have that coral on sand. Try moving it up for better lighting, maybe feed it also. Just my 2 cents.

That is 100% galaxea. Not goni, either way I'd move it up as well.
