It is hard to see things. Is the orange hard to the touch? Are there any clear tubes coming out of it? If there are tubes it is a sponge.
As for the macro algae, that would be galaxaura. <head> <title>Macroalgae For Marine Reef Aquariums: Galaxaura Sp.

It feels somewhat soft but when I try to push into it it's solid doesn't squish in or anything if that helps and I don't see any tubes anywhere

You won't always. It is most common, but not a necessity.

if it's hard with a chalky feel it's coraline
if it's slimy I would lean towards red slime algae
if it's fuzzy most likely sponge

ok this picture may help you figure out the proper id , I thought I had a picture of red slime but I don't but the description I gave is dead on

on your left orange sponge with pours not tubes
on your right red coraline
lower right white tube like sponge
