Hi all,

I'm having a hard time identifying one of my acropora. Please take a look:

I believe it is either a Acropora Tortuosa or a Acropora millepora pink

Can someone help me?

Thank you!

All right, you asked for it :D

At around second 5 of my reef video update I have a Montipora. I was under the impression this was a Digitata Green however it is growing sideways and not upwards. Can you help?

Doesn't look like plana. I always thought red planet was a hyanthicus, either way one of those two IDs is as close as you can get with such a small frag. Unless it was bought as red planet it's not a red planet.

A lot of people mistake RP as a Millie, hyacinthus, etc.
But real red planet is indeed anthoceris

Where did you find this? I was only able to find gbd saying it looks to be an anthoceris, cant find anything from ORA saying it is anthoceris.

Find this ?
GBD?

ORA isn't always right on their coral names.

RP's radiulars are way different than hyachintus, growth is typically different too, only coral that I have trouble differentiate from A. hyachintus is A.cyntherea.
