coral identification?!?!

Hi all, I have just purchased a couple of corals from a friend who is shutting down her tank but I dont know entirely what they are im having a huge job tracking one in particular down on the net anywhere. One is two finger corals growing on the same piece of rock but both are different and im not sure what type of finger they are and the other is huge neon green and brown nobbly mushrooms. They are some type of giant specie as one is 9 inches in diameter on is 6 inches in diameter and i have some babies growing too. She cant remember what they are called as she lived quite far away from me when she purchased them and never have i seen anything like them in any fish shop i have been in, she was also advised to feed a lobster egg every so often to them as they like it so has been doing this (dont know if that will help any with identification) I just really wanted to know what they were so I could ensure I am taking care of them correctly. Sorry about the bad pictures my camera is playing up so ended up using my phone thanks

Looks like a Finger leather coral to me or could be a A devils hand leather, but i'd say the finger first.

Check the links, perhaps they are just withdrawn and hard to tell.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

The pictures make it hard but try and find some pics on Lobophyllia, Sinularia and Rhodactis and see if you get some matches.
