Roots coming from coral???

What are these "root" looking things coming off my corals base? Something to be concerned about? My tank had been moving along so if it's an issue I'll remove it. There white in color and look like roots. Pics aren't that great.

LPS most do sting and use chemical warfare for real estate. I have had an acan attack leather and nearly kill, I thought they were far enough apart. The leather recovered but it took about 4 months before it looked decent again.

Guess I'll move it then. It just happening the past few days. They don't move, only with flow they do. They honestly look like roots.

I'll move it anyway just to be safe.

I have something similar in my tank. When I tried to Google what I thought they looked like, the info I received said it was a type of sponge feeder tentacles. I can't tell from your pic, but it looks similar to mine. Good luck.

I'm gonna see if I can get better pics. Maybe I'll just pick it up and see what happens.
