Need two IDs

I've had both of these for a while now, both are happy and almost always out... I have yet to find out what these are, as I couldn't get any good pics... these arent half bad..

First:





Second(color is actually pink, not orangish):



Ideas on what they are?

Goniopora/alveopora. Without looking it up, I can't remember the difference in tentacle numbers to tell you which is which, but I'm leaning toward alveo #1 and goni #2.

See thats why I was wondering.. unless I'm counting wrong, on the first one, I count 8 per..

The pink one has more tentacles that the green/blue.. thats for sure.. different shape too obviously.

Yep I count 12 on the first one. Can't make out the second one but it's more than 12.

Check out this site for info:

Gonios are a little harder to keep than alveo... they like medium flow, but random. In other words, they like to swirl and wave around a bit, but not violently. Also feeding is pretty simple if you can find roti-rich. A couple of years ago, Jen-N-Kerry on here (hopefully I got their screen name right) was doing a study on them, and actually had gonios reproducing, and they were able to bring them back from near death using this stuff. It's a great filter feeding food. All my alveos grew nicely with basic feedings targeting other corals, and had awesome color.
