    I would say those are all spot on actually.

    Colorblindness might be getting the best of me. But the top one could be a Rose Bubble tip?

    And the bottom looks like an immature flowerpot coral! (or potentially a variety of Xenia)

    I am assuming these are all yours! Nice haul!

    Yeah I popped over to see Suzanne about a Frogspawn and a Hammer, and left with 2 bags of stuff.

    Now if I just knew what it was lol.

    The anemone is definitely green, wow I can't believe how it's all bubbled up like that in a day, everything looks great, stuff will probably change color a bit gradually in your setup. That chalice will have pink eyes if it gets better. The last one is a pink star polyp :) the acans should color up nicely :)

    The one I had turned into 3 and none of them were movers.... The RBTA I had was a different story and made me very nervous.
