The pictures are blurry but from what I can tell. If you did not add them the first one might be apatsia(sp?) and should be removed. But a clearer picture would help alot in a more accurate identification.

yeah they look like apistasia or another pest anemone.. if the rock can be taken out do so and break of under where they are in order to get them all (dont leave any little bit or they will grow back) another option i have read about is taking 100% lemon juice and squirting them in the mouth to kill them off (just dont use to much and get it everywhere)

Well did not take chances took out the rock and boiled the area with the aspitia garbage coral on it so far so good even added a couple pepermint shrimp
