Not sure what the first thing is, but the second is an aptasia.

The first thing might be a "sea apple" but I would need more brighter pics to be sure!

Also. If the second guy is aptasia, u need to kill it. A syringe with calcium supplement injected in its mouth will do the trick

Thanks guys I found out today that the first thing is a cowrie snail that cost $35. Nice I got it free on my rock. Also found a sea urchin in my rock. The second thing the guy said it looks like a sun flowr or something I have to check again. But anyway this is why I love the reef hobby. You just never what you're going to see.

The thing with the tentacles is not a flower nem

Its aptasia or mojano, if you like it then you will have many in 6 months and will be thrilled

Better ID the cowrie properly. They are primarily predators and will feed on anything... Just sayin'

+1 on all of the above. 2nd thing is definitely aptasia. (Yes, you will want to find a way to eradicate these. They reproduce very quickly, and will irritate anything they get close to).
1st thing, the cowrie...better safe than sorry. It's easier to pull him out and throw him in the sump rather than wait until he eats something expensive. +1 on most are predatory. More often then not, "Compatible with Caution" doesn't work out.

I doubt that the last thing is an aiptasia or majano!
Aiptasia have opaque bases, and I've never noticed aiptasia/Majanos having the texture to the tentacles that can be seen in the pics...I've only seen lps( maybe "ball anemone" also) with the bumps/texture.
