Contrary to [acronym="Identify"]s impossible to ID Acropora beyond genus, from pictures (with a couple of exceptions.). Best I can do is Acropora spp.

yeah i know its very hard/impossible to guess what they are?

do you have some sort of idea? as i would just like to be able to say yeah that could be a acropora *******, but explain that you cant really get down to family, but just genes and the family is just a guess.

The only books I have for ID do not specify species, I need to pick up Corals of the World by Vernon, just haven't gotten around to it.

I can tell you the third one looks like A. millepora to me.

The second one reminds me of A. granulosa.

The fourth is a tri-color bottle brush type acro, not clue on a species ID

The sixth looks like a table acro, again no idea on species ID.

Best I can do, and may be wrong.
