Agreed, the first is definitely GSP (green star polyps) and the 2nd looks almost like xenia... except, xenia is pale in color while your's appear a dark red to me. So, perhaps a type of clove polyp and/or maybe sympodium polyps.

Welcome to Fishlore! We'd love to see more of your tank.

Hi, welcome to Fishlore.

The second pic is hard to tell in that lighting, and focus.

Clove polyps are more vine like stems, so I don't think it's cloves either.

My guess - Pipe Organ (Tubipora Musica) - if it has a red calcerous base and the polyps have eight tentacles
