    Hi and welcome to Living Reefs!

    The white things are sponges and are harmless filter feeders.

    The things by your leather corals are aiptasia. They are pests and can multiply very quickly. Get some Aiptasia X and nuke them. One of them looks very big compared to the smaller one between your two baby leathers.

    There are also some livestock that eat aiptasia. Like copper banded butterflies and peppermint sprimp. There are more these two just worked best for me.
