I have the same thing in my tank (first pic). Reefrunner had said that they were a type of sponge. I remember the word pineapple for some reason. Not sure if they are called pineapple sponges or thats just what he used to describe them to me! I have them growing behind my PH's and theres a ton of them growing in my biomedia in my skimmer. They aren't bad, not sure that they are really good; I think they're just there!

The second pic is a bit hard to tell, but it could be Leucosolenia sp. (also a sponge). Here is a pic of some in our tank:

ok one last ? if sponges like these are growing and reproducing like they are would it be safe to add other sponges or are some alot harder to keep than others which im guessing is the case but like the idea of adding different kinds of sponges if i could keep them alive !!!
