A few more pieces I need help with

1coral9 zoa/polyp of some kind?

1coral10 zoa/polyp of some kind?

1coral11 I have no idea....not moving, just laying mushy and flat????

First two are zoa / paly species. The last is hard to say, though it may be a xenia species. It would be easier to ID if the polyps would open.

Thanks for your help. So for the 3 pics posted in this thread and the 8 from the previous thread the only SPS is the monti piece? The rest are soft corals or zoas?

Edit: for number 5, this pic is not much better but the best I can get of it

You are correct, all softies with the exception of the monti cap.

The only SPS is the monti. What sort of tank setup do you have?

I have a 29 gallon biocube. I ordered a nano soft coral pack and mix pack that should have contained 4 soft and 4 sps. It looks like I only received:

1 Kenya Tree
1 Finger leather
1 Toadstool
2 ricordia
2 xenia ???
1 monti
4 zoa/paly

Not very happy

Is it normal for the kenya tree to still be laying flat like that and not moving at all?

I think that last pic is green star polyps.

I was thinking the same thing, but without polyp extension I hated to speculate. Could also be another species of Xenia.

i think the vertical pieces in the pic might be the polyps. just guessing of course... might be wrong though.
