What are these anemone/coral called?

What are these anemone/coral called? What type of care does it need? Do i need to be feeding them anything? and how? can anyone give me some info on them or a website where i can read about them?
what is that white part on the pink with green tip anemone. did something die off or maybe left? im not sure if these are bubble tip anemone or some type of mushrooms.

green bubble coral (Plerogyra sinuosa)
frogspawn (Euphyllia paradivisa)
these are both large polyp stony corals.
you don't need to feed them anything.
yes, one of the heads died on that frogspawn colony recently.

Thanks everyone

My sexy shrimp is sitting on the green bubble anemone? Is that ok? I guess he's just hanging out there now...

Clownfish will host just about anything if they want to. I wouldn't expect it though

That is true what Zer0 - Kevin said that the Clownfish will host anything. I got worried because mine was trying to host with the Heaters till I staked some rocks up around the heaters because I was scared that they where going to burn themselves on it.
