ID Please on Live Rock

I’m not sure what these are and would appreciate some help if anyone can.

The green spot is smaller than a #2 pencil eraser and the individual polyps (?) are smaller than a pin head.

The orange spot is about the size as three #2 pencil erasers and does not look like polyps to me.

They really only show up when the lighting is dimming down and the whites are off. I’m not sure if it matters but the live rock was purchased from KP Aquatics. Thank you very much for your help.

the orange is likely algae - sometimes it comes in fluorescent orange.
the green looks to be a young polyp of some kind. hard to tell what type - an anemone, hairy mushroom, or pocillopora coral seem like likely candidates.
