They do look like a type of hydroid usually found on sps...might brush off .

check out my thread on the EXACT same thing I got. long story short, I'd throw that frag out as nothing I tried worked, only when I cut out the original patient 0 fart did the madness stop.

Did you Bayer or Coral RX dip and scrub it with a toothbrush when you received it? If not, might be worth a try....
Frag looked completely normal when I got it. Coral rxed it and shot water over it with a pipet I think im going to let it chill for a couple days in my other tank so I dont stress them out more then dip again if it doesnt go away.
