First pic looks like astrangia spp.

Second pic looks like Cladacora spp. (check the spelling on that one, it's early )

I have looked around myself and cant seem to find anything out about either of the two.. The Second one I believe is spelled cladocera but the only reference I can find to that Is water fleas.. Thanks Again for your help

Astrangia sp. is very similar to Phyllangia sp - here's a brief page on that:

>>Phyllangia americana>> - aka "Hidden Cup Coral". Non-photosynthetic coral which is a common hitchhiker.

There are pics of both Astrangia sp. & Cladocora on this page: >>Florida Marine Research Institute ~ Photo Gallery<<

HTH!!
