My guess is Sunset or Rainbow encrusting Montipora on the first pics.

Never use color to ID sps it's all about morphology.

cant really see details of the papillae or verrucae on the coenstrum, but it looks fairly smooth,

I'd compare it with Montipora mollis,

Edit: ^^^ Coral in the OP, second one posted is way too small as M. verrucosa, palawanensis, verrucolusus, cebuensis, danae all look incredibly similar as frags, you need the new growth to differentiate between the different way the verrucae/coenstrum ridges form on each species accurately
