Can you help me identify what this is that is attached to the rock?

I currently have a 26 gallon bowfront FOWLR tank and i upped the live rock amount from 15 to 25 lbs over this last weekend. One of the pieces of rock that i bought happened to have some sort of "life" attached to it that was not really noticed until later on in the evening of installation.

If anyone could help me identify it so i can determine if it could either be potentially harmful.. Or something amazing that i need to ensure i talk exceptional care of. 2 pictures are attached that show what this "life" is. I am referring to the green "stalks" that flow freely with the water.

Thank you all so much for any help you are able to provide.

Also... the red flowery type of thing in the top left of the pic has been stated to me to be some sort of chalice and that I lucked out in this... there are two of them attached to this rock.. Any ideas?

Again thanks for any help any of you are able to provide!
