Spotted these two very attractive semps in a Facebook Group named "For Love of Succulents", the problem is almost everything posted to this FB Group is unnamed. Do either of these two semps ring any bells for you?

screen captures from FB Group "ForLoveOfSucculents":

I need some more green semps, can you recommend any that might look like the green noid green above? That one has classic rosette shape, cilia, really cute chicking habit, and bright red-pink stolons.

The stolons are hidden in this photo, but they are a bright pink.

Thanks Greg, another good one. Went to add it to my want list, and it was already in my list. Photos of 'Silver Angel' in the Semp database show that it's an excellent miniature clumper.
