I'm trying to ID these corals to determine requirements and placement. Need some help figuring out what they are.

The second one looks a lot like echinata, but the branches are very short. The photo makes it look thicker than it is. They're very thin, maybe 2mm.

After some research I have determined that the first one is acropora granulosa and the second one seems like it's probably acropora plana.

The first one could be A. Rosaria

Agree, either rosaria or loripes. Not sure on #2

It fits the description of A. Rosaria much better than granulosa. I have since obtained another colony and their growth pattern is basically identical. I'm pretty convinced it is Rosaria. Still trying to find its ideal placement. It seems content on the bottom though it has greened out. I would point to low lighting for the cause but I have several pieces greening out, even near the top.
