Trying to identify possible critters

I think I posted my first question in the wrong place, anyway I am looking to identify the following: Both are living on live rock. The tank has only been running a day or so. The first are some type of something white, lol and the second one likes to come out at night and pops back into the rock when the light is on.

Unsure of the first one but the second is a feather duster.

I've noticed something similar to the first one in my tank. I'm unsure of what it is but mine have a string like thing that they dangle out in the current. My guess is some type of filter feeder critter
