Not really sure the second one is a nem. The foot doesn't look normal. Anyways. How much light do you have? More than anything it's probably not enough light.

no aptasia there. the first one looks to be a rock anemone. the second is hard to tell, as it's in very poor shape. how large is it at the moment?
