The first pic is a Digitate hydroid. Nothing to worry about for the most part, they can reproduce rapidly in some systems but are fairly easy to remove manually if that happens.

 

The second pic is aptasia as stated above. Do a search on removal and control methods before you do anything with it..... removal can create a bigger probem if not done properly.

What is a hydroid worm? Hydroid=cnidarian. Worm=polychaete (usually).

 

First pic sure looks like harmless worm (terebellid?) to me.

Why are apitaisa so bad I forget I just get rid of mine when I see some sprout.

 

 

 

They will sting other animals and reproduce rapidly.

 

I also wondered what a "hydroid worm" was, c est ma.....lol

 

....but I'm sticking with Digitate hydroid as my guess for pic #1.

They're like dandelions taking over a pretty lawn (i.e. weeds!)
