Green Slimer vs green acropora

I realize that a green slimer is an acropora but I have two different types of acropora that were both given to me and both were given claiming to be green slimers.

The smaller one is hard to see in the picture but you can clearly see the other. Any ideas what acropora these are exactly?Click image for larger version

The first looks like A. yongei which is "green slimer". The other just looks like a green stag. It's coralites don't look as refined as green slimers are. Here's my slimer if that helps at all

Yeah that looks to be the same. The guy Gave me the whole piece that is shown. You can see how the top has it's color whereas the bottom has no color at all. Can I expect to see the whole piece color up?334

It should. The shade part won't be as green as the rest though
