    Lol, nothing to worry about ;). They probably hitchhiked in on live rock or frags. It's a sign of a healthy tank!

    It's sponges. Put your finger in the tank and gently press on one. Should be soft and easily compresses and returns to shape. Might come off the glass of it does , pull it and look at it. Squeeze it and see it's like what I described.
    That's a sponge.

    If it runs away. We'll talk about it.
