    The one you got marked as pic #5 looks like it could be a torch coral.
    Dana has the rest covered.

    Yah i had a duplicate! Tryed fixing it but mehhh!!! Haha.

    The anenome has alot of tubes but its not normal aneonme. When i bought it , it had 4 heads, kinda like flower rock? N tenticals grew out. But i seen other ones where they can move on glass, this one is kinda on rock , so not sure if there is a mouth. I fed it shrimp last night and it grabbed it . Same as few others. Like the brown one and the bulb one. And also the very colourfull one in the rock.

    Naw.It's not a Bubble Tip. It's what is commonly called a rock anemone.Small and fairly easy to keep as long as they are fed daily.
    At least from what I can tell by the pics.
