Have changed my mind several times on the first few between Scolymia and Cynarina, so I guess I will get half and half..? They are about 5" across and have a conical skeleton. The other pink one on tall branches looks like a type of Blasto maybe..?

The first one is acantophyllia deshayesiana and the other a lobo which is badly bleached and receding.

No worries. The acanthophyllia looks like it doing well but the lobo might need a little work. Its hard to tell from the picture but you see these commonly in deep pink or red morphs and if this is the case then you might need to make sure it is getting the right lighting for it to recover. They are also a species (both of these are actually) that can be fed easily and it may help/speed its recovery.
Best of luck.

That last one is a Lobophyllia that's getting way too much light. I'd put that on the sandbed and make sure none of the flesh touches rocks when it opens up.
