Help with critter ID please!

I'm trying to ID these two from my live rock!
I think the first is possibly a Stomatella but i'm not 100% sure!
The second is like a red "bubble" (not like a bubble algae though, not shiny etc), and seems to be growing from a stalk!

Thanks!

That is a stomatella. I guess I'm not seeing the other thing you're inquiring about. The only stalks I see are part of the stomatella.

Maybe it's my computer or something but the second photo didn't appear yesterday, so I was under the impression the 2nd thing was in the same photo as the stomatella.

I can see the 2nd photo now as well as the 3rd...I;m not sure what that is. .

If I had to take a wild guess I'd say a hitchhiking mushroom. Sometimes mushrooms will shape their discs like that on occasion.
