Top pic is a ball anemone. The bottom pic is hard to make out but maybe a small soft coral like a kenya tree or some type of sponge. A clearer pic would help.

I'd agree with Ritter. I'd go ahead and exterminate the the Nem. Better safe than sorry.

I dont know, I have had these ball nems in my tank since I started it and they never seem to get bigger or spread, I barely notice them. I have them in my new setup and no idea where they came from but I will just leave them, Im having more problems with micro brittle starfish than anything, these things are everywhere and crawl all over my corals, I been syphoning them out. Leave the nems!

I would get some peppermint shrimp... They will help keep the population of the nems in check... I have a couple of them that love in my sump but used to have them all over my tank. Peppermints took care of them for me but that's just my vote
