    Yip, #1 is indeed a pink millepora (millepora acropora)

    #2 is a bottlebrush acropora (acropora enchinata/granulosa)

    #3 is a bit more difficult can be one of 2... Acropora nasuta/formosa

    If it does not say Hach, Hanna, Deltec, Milwaukee, LaMotte and one or two other none hobbyist names which are eluding me at the moment, it simply is not worth buying when you want to run Low nutrient systems for colour manipulation....

    Based on?

    The millis and granulosa is probably right, but please bear in mind that to correctly ID an acropora, one has to have a very closelook at calcites and corallites, which require dead frags.
    Even with all Charlie Veron's Cd's and books on the coffee table and in the laptop, the art of identifying corals via pictures shot through aquarium glass is nothing more than speculation.... at best.... slightly educated speculation........but speculation nonetheless.
