cactus identification for repotting compost choice

Anonymous added on May 3, 2019 | Answered

Could you please tell me what type of cactus is the guy on the far left in the first photo in this link? https://www.barrythecactus.com/product/mini-cactus-x-3-assorted/ or the front one in this link? https://www.barrythecactus.com/product/pink-boob-pot/ I have that mini one and I've managed to give it rot. I have just cut off the bottom rotted part and need to choose the appropriate soil to re-pot and try to save it!!! Your site says apparently if it's a tropical variety you want a bit of peat in the soil if it's a desert variety you don't. Thanks!!!
