I picked up some live rock off craigslist yesterday.
I only paid $30 for it and it's about 30 lbs. with all kinds of goodies on it.

This morning the stony I thought was dead has started opening up and looks like it will do good. I just don't know what kind it is or how to take care of it.

Also there are a few anemones I need ID on.

The stony is a flower pot coral (goniopora or alveopora), if the polyps have 24 'petals' it's the former, if they have 12 petals, then it's the latter. You'll be able to tell if the polyps fully extend (when healthy they can extend several inches). A very challenging coral to keep.

The anemone in the last pic seems to be a pest anemone: aiptasia.
