Live rock ???? interesting little flower thingie

Wife picked up some live rock yesterday ,
I put it in a tub with a power head also put a light above
it has these little twig like thing coming out of it and they are hollow and dead looking , now I just looked in on the rock and there are bluish purple flower thingies coming out of the twig looking things, hour later there gone look again and there back ,
they look neat just wondering anyone have a idea what they could be? they are so tiny I cant get camera to focus in on them
cant wait to get the rock into the tank

thanks for any help identifying this neat little flower

feather dusters. these filter feeders tend to "sprout up" from time to time in our tanks. some claim to have success keeping them but i have found they usually slowly starve over time due to lack of food in our closed systems. ( seems to be more so with the larger varieties and cocoworms )

yes they are cool. its actually a worm in a hard tube that pushes out the "fan" that catches its food passing by in the water.

First off here is how my tank looks since i finished adding rock

any Idea what this little rubbery little thing is it wasn't there last night

also discovered a bunch of Amphipods and 2 blue leg hermits

Coraline is very noticeable on a few pieces that wasn't so bold in coloration last night
wonder what ill find next
