Really hard to make out any details, can you describe it at all? Like is it moving around your tank...just growing there.... tough to make a guess at this point.

Looks like some sponge next to the polyps... as for what's in focus... a Chilian Sponge. It's a type of non-photosynthetic coral.

Sponges are good things...natures own filtering system. They can pump hundreds of gallons a day through their flesh. They typically like subdued lighting. Also, try to never take them out of water. They don't fare well if they have been exposed to air.

I've got yellow sponges, red sponges, white sponge, and a gorgeous purple sponge that is growing in my fuge.

Lucky you!!

I have yellow versions of those no my rocks...they are good things. Usually dont get very bid, but add nice color to the reef
