Image #5 is a tunicate. The red colored one's are pretty common. They are filter feeders. One opening is an "in", the other..an "out". When active, they inflate. They'll need phytoplankton to survive.

In your case, there is some orange coralline algae growing over the middle portion of the tunicate, between the "in" and the "out".
