Noticed hitchhikers(good thing) need ID - pics

I noticed a couple of hitch hikers that I hope are what I think
First is poss a group of small feather dusters about 1/16 inch long ( thats the only bubble algae in the tank )



Second appears to be a coral -it will retract when you get close to look at it and is about 1/8 diameter. ( small green circle in center)

In the first pic there are 5-6 tubes tan/brown color in front of the white "webbing" straight up from the bubble algae.

Could #1 be Hydroids? That's what first popped into my head. Kinda hard to see though...

Ok I agree the 1st is probably hydroids, the second though is a feather duster. I have a lot in my tank that look just like that....they are about the size of a dime or smaller...
