The coral's a bit of a stumper but at first glance it resembles a star coral in many ways. Any chance of moving the coral a bit closer to the glass for a pic with a bit more detail.

The green algae looks like chaetomorpha. The red looks like a type of gracilaria.

Cheers
Steve

Re: closer pic

Not 100% sure but I do still think it's a star coral. Either (more likely) Montastraea annularis or (less likely) Montastraea franksi. Have you seen any real polyp extention?

Noi sure there. I am not the best person when it comes to photography myself. Just got an Olympus C-750 and still learning how to use it properly... LOL

Cheers
