    difficult to make out, could be a sinularia polydacta, but doubt it, as it should have more of a base.

    It almost looks like Isaurus tuberculatus (Zoanthidea family) but the picture isn't too clear so I may be wrong...

    First ones are zoanthids, Isaurus tuberculatus. Common in rockpools at same spots in KZN.

    Second looks like a Cycloseris. Too highly domed to be Fungia.

    Can't really make out the third. Got another pic from another angle?
