Red something on LR

I got this(the red item in the center of the picture) in with my florida keys rock. I have had the rock in the tank about 10 days. Can anyone ID? Is it a sea squirt? Thanks for the helps....excuse the picture but it the best I could do.

It looks like a patch of maroon coraline to me, the pic is not very clear, maybe someone else can make out what it is.

the red circle in the middle of the pic also opens and closes from time to time.

Does it look like this...



If so, it is a SeaSquirt/Tunicate. It will require regular feeding of phytoplankton to stay healthy.

Here is another pic a little harder. Didn't know that taking a picture of something inside a tank was so hard........Maybe this will help. Sorry for the double pic...

Not the same as mine, but I would say that is probably a tunicate/seasquirt
