Inherited these 2 from a family member whom recently passed. My research is telling me probably dogtail cactus. Any care tips and advice welcome. Doesn't look the healthiest but definitely surviving.

Looks like a young dragon fruit(hylocereus) or the related selenicereus or a wild acanthocereus...
Dog tail....its not aporocactus flageliformis, i can tell you that much for certain. It has thin round ciricular stems, with brown/yellow spines....and its not selenicereus testudo, adult forms dont look like yours....
The photos i see are from hylocereus or selenicereus seedlings.And a lot of those look alike.When young at least...

The lower part is etiolated because of a lack of light. My id is made by the thicker healthier part near the base...
