Can someone help me identify these little cacti?

What are they called? Also how big are they going to get? That is the only pot i had at the moment. Eventually i will get them each their own.

Let me start of with, i hate those fake straw flower ... you can leave it on if you want, but i would take it off

I have no idea what the one in the back is. The one with the red "flower" looks like some kind of cereus (very broad, i know) and the one in the front with the pink looks like parodia scopa. Most cacti get very large .

Also your soil looks like it could use ALOT more drainage. Add like 50% more inorganic materials such as perlite or pumice.

Yea omg i was thinking they looked like they just stuck them on with a glue gun or something! So those arent real flowers? I;ve seen them open up and close according to the weather.

Humidity makes them open and close. The one on the left looks Echinocereus-y to me.
