It's caterpillar weed (Neomeris annulatus). Not sure on the other stuff, maybe a sponge or tunicate.

Caterpillar weed is a type of macro algae and not harmful at all. It has been my experience that it shows up on new LR and usually dies out pretty quick, however, I just had some crop up on some LR that has been in my tank for over a year and it appears to be doing well.

If they are sponges or tunicates...they are harmless filter feeders.
