    first one looks more like a rose bubble tip anemone ( RBTA ) to me, can you post another couple pics from a different angle??

    the second one looks like the arm of a brittle sea star, and the description of 5 arms and hides during the day fits that.

    you could try feeding both a nice piece of meaty food ( i like krill but shrimp / silversides or other will be fine ). for the anemone just touch the food to the tentacle and it should stick, the anemone should then move the food along to the mouth. for the star do the same or just hold it close and he will reach out and grab it but use a much smaller piece than for the anemone. i am comfortable hand feeding my anemones and stars but you may wish to use a pair of SS tongs or similar.

    Thanks for your help!

    I've concluded through yourselves and a couple other resources that it is a pink/rose bubble anemone and a brittle sea star.

    Thanks again,
