I bought these mushrooms 2 years ago. I have no idea what they are. They were not bounced when i bought them but have appeared to now bounce. Any idea what they are?

They look like st. Thomas mushroom and it’s not unusual for some mushrooms to inflate like this and then deflate again. If light is too bright, this may happen and also note:
If the corals become covered in sand they have a unique ability to inflate their tissue in order to excavate themselves from burial and even to flip themselves over

i dont think these are st thomas because of the tentacle/vesicle structure. They do look like ricordea, maybe yuma. No name for them unless you have lineage though. Second one looks similar to a gdzilla yuma in structure
