    Photo one could be a hydroid or a filter feeding tube worm aka feather duster. If the tube is flexable and fleshy it’s a hydroid.
    Photo two is a feather duster. (It also has a ridged tube)
    Photo three I believe is a sponge
    Photo four is Foraminiferans
    You can find them all here.
