Pink/Purple things on live rock? Possibly coral?

I got some live rock off a guy on craigslist. His setup was amazing and he sold me the rocks at $3 a pound. I have notices these things, seem to have white tips that look to be floating but then I noticed they/it has a purple/pink color to them and they are in two spots. IDK what it can be, can you tell? It seems to be growing even though it is still under 1 50/50 t8 bulb. Getting a new t5ho soon, decided to go with the t5 and not the LEDs but i don't mind.

Those are a form of Aiptasia. Those aren't as bad as the others out there. I keep those in my tank.

What kind, do you know the specific name? I tried to google other types of aiptasia and they don't seem to match the thing.
