Looks like stressed out macro algae. Money plant and shaving brush.

They're definitely dead. Those two calcareous algaes deposit calcium carbonate in their tissues and when they die, the calcium skeleton is left. It's a shame the condition they came in. I'd send a complaint/ask for a refund.

Send a message via AIM to Breakthecycle2
I've ordered twice from them. The first was pods and corals. The corals were dead in a week. The second was pods with a free zoa. The zoa dies in three days.
