Going to be a long process removing all the rock to avoid them from taking over.

Those look like aptasia to me. The brown guys sprouting from the top of the rock? They look like feather dusters, but are a stinging anemone. Several methods to get rid of them, but getting rid of them you should defiantly do.

Hydroids are in the jellyfish family and can look similar. But aptasia is more common to aquaria. Without a better photo it's hard to determine which it is.
