    They look rather colonial (spreading well - pest) but i've not seen that type before

    Please explain the statement in red.

    "These possibly could be hydroids (Class Hydrozoa). Some of the Hydroids are photosynthetic and can be very beautiful, a deceiving disguise as they are potentially dangerous to other inhabitants. Hydroid polyps are part of the life cycle of the animal. They are the asexual stage of life for many of the "jellyfish" and are related to such colonial hydrozoans such as the fire coral, Millepora and others such as Stylaster, Distichtophora, and Allopora."
