Hi, folks! I'm a long-time lurker here and I first have to say thanks for the community. I've appreciated the info, photos, and video from all of you.

Can you help me figure out what these items are, found just off of Terranea / Old Marineland?

I've very scientifically called this one "goop." It's translucent like a jelly, but I don't see any sign of tentacles or organs. (Sorry for the quality - these stills are captured from video. I have other angles if it would help.)

In this shot, what are the greenish-blue bits and the coral-like brownish-red fronds?

Thanks a bunch for any help. I'm obviously just getting started identifying flora and fauna, and appreciate any assistance I can get, including pointers to books or websites.
