    The all are doing well and my main reason for getting rid of it is that it does not fit in with my future plans for my tank...

    Thanks all
    Willie

    hmmm hard to tell from the pics, but 1 and 3 could possibly be an ugly acan...but cant tell if those heads are flat like mushrooms almost or just stretching out. The second one...looks like a Blasto Merletti, but could also be a Favia...like I said hard to tell from those pics. :)

    1 & 3 are the same coral I presume... and he did say LPS, a mushroom is a soft coral. ;)

    still reckon best bet for 2 is a Blastomussa Merletti which is this below

    failing this and the picure being deceiving its a favia.

    Williet, please start a thread in the for sale section with pics as per rules - this is turning into a for sale thread with you asking for offers and guys asking for prices. This is the ID section and the wrong place. Thanks.

    Thread cleaned up.
