Orange is either some sort of receding chalice or a scroll coral.
Second are palys
Third looks like a hollywood stunner chalice
Fourth is an sps that I'm not familiar with...looks like maybe an acro of some sort...

Im using the tried and true screwdriver and hammer method. The plan is to get these onto rock so they can start spreading. And sniper, thank you for id'ing them. He told me when i was there but i quickly forgot.

Fish day!!! Although we came home with a few goodies, i completely forgot coral glue. We ended up picking up 2 decently sized blue/green chromis, a bag of live brine shrimp (for the mandarin), and a bottle of pods. They had smaller chromis available but i figured its best to error on the side of caution and go with the bigger ones. As for the mandarin, i soaked the brine in Selcon before feeding them to the mandarin. That was 5 minutes ago and hes still hunting these bad boys down. Being that he is eating the live brine, im going to setup the 5g tank and put the pods in there. Hopefully they will be able to sustain a reliable population

It was desperately needed. The mandarin was eating frozen brine but he was nt filling up on them. So now i have a decent amount of brine shrimp (im ordering a brine hatch kit in a bit) but i also have backup pods as well

Update!! Purple tang is back in the dt, yellow tang is in qt for 4-5 days for an attitude adjustment. Watched the mandarin eat prob 10-15 brine shrimp. Havent decided what to do next. My options right now are 1) fill the 5g chi tank and put the bottle of pods in there OR 2) remove damsels from refugium and put pods there. Any suggestions?
