The Shwa of course!
Hard call. The tube looking thing just looks like a sponge. Do the surrounding blobs move? They kinda look like nudibranchs but also could be just sponge material tricking my eye. Is the coral happy? Anyway this response with add you to the "new post" list and I find more people watch that than the "unanswered list" so hopefully you'll get a more definitive I.D.

probably a vermatid. I’d probably cut it off with frag cutters. Chance of introducing pests is worse than the chance of killing an innocent…whatever it is.
Pretty sure it’s a tube worm, but we need an image under white light from OP.

Sponge. Looks like Clathrina sp. I happen to like this variety. I usually leave a little bit and brush of the rest. If it's the species I think it is it will turn bright yellow with age. Those are young. Search Clathrina clathrus.

Spionid dont build up tubes on the surface like what is seen in the pic. It's not a vermetid either. Those tubes are much smaller.
Larger spionids can definitely build tubes on the surface. There are also a number of vermatid species as well. Some of them can build tubes that are this size. They're just not seen very often. The small variety is far more common.
