Received these two aloes from friend (got from his neighbor) and had no idea what kind of aloe they are.

The first one came in a some sort of tall metal container w/o drainage. Should it be repotted in a shorter clay pot? The second came three of them ( big with baby) in a big (18") plastic self-water pot. Tinkering to repot them into three 10" clay pots and small pots for babies. Appreciate your ID and advice.

Non-draining pots are a no-no for Aloes which mostly like to be on the dry side.

Ok, I checked/scanned through Aloe Database (entries with photo only) and pretty sure (90%?) the first one be the Climbing Aloe (aloe ciliaris), but not sure at all on the second one that may be Aloe cryptopoda, or aloe vacillans, or aloe barberae? Any one?
