Sorry which pic are you refering to. The first one looks like a macro algae surrounded by encrusting sponges. The second I'm still not sure on...

It looks like a species of brown macro algae (Dictyota dichotoma) possibley. Most macro algaes in the main tank can easily become a nuisance. When possible either remove them or at the least keep them pruned regularly.
