Can you name these corals???

The wife and I are argueing about what two of these corals are. She stands by the LFS, I have my doubts. We decided to take it to AA and let you prove one of us wrong (her).

TIA
Calvin

The one on the left looks like a purple gorgonian (does it have white polyps?) with a lettuce nudi. The one on the right looks like a spaghetti leather Sinularia flexibilis

Cheers
Steve

I have also heard them referred to as Sea Whips.
