Looking for help identifying what this is on my zoas. This is the first time I’ve ever seen them in the tank. Is this some type of nudibranch? Thanks in advance!

Hard to identify from this image alone, regardless if you can remove the rock from the tank and carefully dip the coral. Even if it isn't a parasite a propper dip treatment is a safe bet

Looks like a sponge. The image you posted, top right side, also looks like Hydroids to me. Something to look into
Definitely hydroids, I’ve been dealing with them on and off. I’ll have them for a period, then they disappear. Haven’t quite figured out what’s causing them.
