Pic 3 is also some type of SPS as itís encrusting and no long stemmed polyps involved. The texture has tiny bristles and looks fury.

Do you know names for the montis?

I still see a flowerpot, need a better pic. Not off the top of my head, but the names can be different region to region too

3 looks like Pavona maldivensis to me. No clue on hobby names for the montis, but all look to be encrusters.

Could #3 be a cyphastrea? I would say either that or a really withdrawn gonipora.

Def not a cyphastrea, goniopora donít encrust like that. Almost positive itís Pavona maldivensis.
