Can anyone help ID these coral. I got them in a frag pack at a trade show and can't for the life of me figure out what they are.

Coral 1 looks like a fungia plate. 
 

Coral 2 is hard to tell from the picture. Is it soft? Does it have a Skelton?

No it's stony.

My best guess, would be a button scoly, but that’s just a guess from the picture. It’s at a bad angle to really be able to identify.

It's not a Scoly, more of a cup. I think it's a type of Chalice from what I'm finding.

Thank you! I think you are right that it is a type of Chalice. Oxypora maybe?
