Macro Algae Identification?

Satori

Cancer Sucks
I have 6 different kinds of macro algae in my fuge, and really only know what 3 are. I know I have green hair, chaeto, and halimeda.

I think these first two are caulerpa?

How about this "spikey" one?

first pic looks like caulerpa prolifera (could be wrong)
second looks like razor/sawblade Caulerpa serrulata
third looks like a halymenia sp. .. could be fauschea also. alot of red macros look very similar. hth

Red algae can be Glacilaria sp.

Based on book Sprung, Algae A Problem Solver can be Halymenia
