1. Could be Acropora tenius. the corallites are there, but it can grow out to be something else. Too small to say for sure.

2. Possibly a small A. tortuosa, but I am leaning more towards A. austera.

3. The last one is tough. If it table it could be A. efflorescens, if it branches in long tubular axial corallites then it could be A. granulosa. lots of other possibilities. This one is interesting but it needs to grow out much more to get a better idea.

Thanks Frick
I was thinking tenius for the first one

for the third here is a side picture of it.

It makes a solid plate but grows up more than most of the efflos ive seen.

It's tough to say on the third one. The only thing to go by are the corallites. Do you know anything about where it came from? Did it come from a colony that plates?

It could be a large branch off A. granulosa. The tips are really looking like it, and a few of the radial corallites are too.
