The top 2 are aptaisa, small anemones. If you let them reproduce to much (which is easy to do) they can become a pest by stinging corals or other life in your tank. I would get rid of them if I were you, feed them a squirt of lemon juice from a syringe and they should die or when your tank is ready you could introduce a peppermint shrimp to eat them (this doesn't always work, sometimes they completely ignore them but it has worked for me).


The bottom 2 look similar to aptasia but I don't know what they are, they might be glass anemones.
