What are these things? Little green 'plant' and red guy...

Hi I was just wondering if anyone has any idea what these are, especially the one marked number 2. It's bright red and quickly hides if someone makes a quick movement. It's coming out of the white thing that is hard. It is really small so it's hard to see, so I'm sorry it is hard to see- it looks like some hair or something. I'm hoping he's not bad

Number 1 & 3, It is soft and keeps growing back. Maybe a sponge or some type of algae?

Then the green plant type thing, it has been growing for quite a while. Maybe an inch and a half long.

Any help is very much appreciated !!

1 & 3 look like encrusting sponges.

2 acts like a tube worm, filter feeder.

The green plant is Neomeris annulatus, caterpillar weed.

Thanks Kevin, for such a quick response!!! I just noticed the red guy a few days ago and he intrigued me. Are the songes good/bad? Just wondering because it is noticeably bigger from when I noticed it a few weeks ago. Anyhow thanks again!!!!!!!

Nope, niether good nor bad, just a natural part of the ecosystem.
