Looks like a gigantic pineapple sponge. They are good filter feeders, but usually show up in numbers, like in a sump, and then self limit.
Are they harmful to the coral? Should I Manuelly remove them? Thanks alot mets17127

Pineapple sponges are usually pretty harmless. Unless the coral is remaining closed all the time, I'd leave it be.

Won't hurt the goni. Once you have a ton of them in your sump and overflow, they become no cost filtration for the entire system.
Awesome information, thanks alot bro , great to know , now I'm not that nervous
 

If you don't keep your sand bed clean it will cause your tank to crash.
