    Top one is orange or red PE, hard to tell from the shot - got one in full light rather than blues?

    2nd one is Devil's Armor

    Bottom two to my knowledge are unnamed.
    I collect PEs, and I'm always looking to trade for ones I don't have yet.

    Picture doesn't look like PPRPE - what are you basing the ID on?

    The orange mouthed ones are really cool. Any Ids would just be a guess on my part.

    True enough - but I believe that part of that is the light; also not 100% sure they are PEs, the tentacles are long and come to a sharp point, rather than short and stubby. There are a number of other polyps that have green mouths that are not PEs. Part of why I said it could be RPE or OPE, could also be something else. I thought perhaps you knew something I didn't when you suggested it was PPRPE. I haven't seen that polyp in like forever.

    I was thinking the first pic could be an armagedon morph. They tend to have some drastic morphs in different conditions. The stripped skirts tipped me off on the thought.

    I kinda thought pic #3 was possibly a blow-pop, but its kind of hard to tell in the lighting the pic is taken under.
