    Hard to say for sure with the first of the two in question since there are several different types of soft corals which have polyps similar to those (e.g., clavuarlia, tubipora, anthelia, briareum, etc).

    As an example/comparison, here's a tubipora frag:

    And anthelia:

    Getting a good look at the coral's matting or base tissue when the polyps are completely retracted would offer additional clues.

    If I had to guess to guess as to the ID of the 2nd coral in question I'm leaning toward pachyclavuria (green star polyps).
