Looks like assorted soft coral for the most part. Some polyps, ricordea, mushrooms. Last picture can't see anything but what appears to be a cyano bacteria outbreak. The first picture appears to be acan lords and some aiptasia off to the side.

Thanks for responding to my post I appreciate it. I am considering rescuing this tank but have no experience with corals whatsoever. I have been doing some research and am prepared to take on the task with all the necessary equipment but am unsure if I should rescue this tank or not. I am definitely up for the challenge but in all honesty am concerned that I am not competent enough for the task. Any advice about this conquest that I am debating? Am I in over my head?

It is doable. It depends on how much is being asked for it. Look into what equipment comes with it, most importantly the lighting and filtration, on if it is worth it or not.

He is selling it for $2 a pound of live rock, estimates there is 50 pounds so $100.00. The corals come with the rock. He is selling the fish individually. My plan would be to place the rock and corals in a tank that has an established sand bed and water that has been up and running for a year and has no problems (I currently have live rock and fish in a tank that I am moving into a bigger tank so I would essentially swap that out and swap the new stuff in). My plan is to treat it and get it into a healthy state and then take the rock with the coral and put it in a nano reef and the remainder rock place it in a 180 tank that I have down the road. I have all the equipment already. Thoughts?

Yeah that's doable. I wouldn't care about the fish myself and go after the rock as it is well priced.
