Sps identification

My phone does no justice, sorry in advance for crappy pictures but what kind of sps coral are these? Saw these at my friends tank. Looks very interesting and looking into them but want to know more information on them before I buy. Thanks!

Pocillopora, one of the easier branching sps

The other looks like a type of stag horn acropora which is an easier acropora as well but you'd have to wait for it to grow bigger before identifying it fully

I thought it was a pocillopora also but not sure and awesome I was looking into them too. Never had acros yet only Monti caps and digitata. I'm starting to become a sps fanatic now that I found the love for this hobby again. Thanks bribo12 for the ID!!
