jade and aloe identification

So, I bought these three fellows off craigslist and they're in a generic peaty MG sort of mix which they don't seem too pleased with. I may be attributing some stress of the move to their mix but so be it.

I had figured the big boy in the back to be a pencil cactus but now that I've got him home Im leaning towards a rhipsalis although i can't find a picture of one similar to him. Perhaps they're all a bit sad to be in MG.

I thought the jade to be Gollum but its leaves are tapering off unlike my other gollum. No clue on the aloe, it reminds me of guys i've seen in the store though, thought i might be able to find some help here.

The larger plant is definitely not Crassula ovata 'Hobbit' -- Hobbit's leaves curl under and sometimes overlap, but do not make closed tubes.

Crassula ovata 'Gollum' has tubular leaves which mostly flare at the tips.

This plant is Crassula ovata 'Skinny Fingers', with tubular leaves which mostly taper at the tips.
