Those first few pics are definitely sponges, but that last pic is a mystery.

I agree, look like Sun Coral polyps (Tubastrea), which would be under a rock or overhang, because they are non-photosynthetic. I feed mine a mix of cyclopeeze, h2o life coral food mix, live phyto, super shrimp every other day. I change up the blend every feeding ( targeted). Larger heads will eat Mysids too. Likes low light, and moderate flow.

it's not a sun coral. Those are Balanophyllia.

They are good, but also need target feeding and don't utilize light.

This is a sun coral. Shot at night inside the wreck of the Rhone.
