Could someone identify this for me please, trying to figure out what I have and label them, I'm sure I will be asking for more identification later as well.

This is extremely hard to do. There are so many look a-likes plus hybrids. Could be right. It is a Haworthia not a Aloe. Although they do interbreed.

Hello Kim, looking at your photo, I see some streaks of line on some leaves, so it may be Haworthia emelyae, Unless I am seeing two plants there, the bigger one looks H. cuspidata and the one a bit more to the front is H. emelyae

Here is my H. emelyae for comparison:

OK , new pictures, hopefully they are clearer...it does have the lines in it, and I don't know if this helps or not but it's a really hard succulent, rock hard and stiff.

Hi Kim, looking at your plant now, I think it is neither Haworthia emelyae or cuspidata..it looks a bit nearer to Haworthia retusa. My H emelyae has the lines and those little bumpy dots, while your plant has smoother leaves. I guess for now just use noid Haworthia till we can narrow down some more.
