    First is looks like candy cane (caulastrea) but need better picture and second open brain (trachyphillia). Third and fourth is indeed an elegance coral (catalaphillia).

    Can anyone explain why the first photo of the elegance is darker than the second photo of the same elegance? The darker color was taken on the day it was placed in the tank and the lighter photo is day after and stil light for a week now?..

    Just make sure that when it is fully inflated that it does not rub against any rockwork. They tend to do very poorly when damaged.
