White balls on LR

Setting up a saltwater tank for the first time. Bought 60# of live rock off Craigslist. From a guy who had a 450 gallon he was slowly breaking taking down. Just wondering what these white balls are, one isn't really a ball but has what look like tenticals. This rock came from an established tank. I didn't cure it.

Are the good or bad? If bad how should I get rid of them?

No worries. Sponges are harmless filter feeders.
