White spongy grow on LR

I just noticed it. I appeared within last 3 days. It covers about 2 sq inches of live rock.
What it might be! Good or bad?

Looks like a sponge. Harmless filter feeder.

I found bellow description to a photo of a sponge that looks just like mine.

" The sponge in your photo appears to be a Clathrina type sponge, commonly known as the Leather Latticework Sponge. They are a filter feeder that take in dissolved organic matter and do not require supplemental feeding. They do not like bright light, generally growing on the undersides of live rock, and it is reef safe"
