    Not sure but my best guess would be some type of marine worms (although I can also see what looks like sea squirts), as for the fern like structures...no real idea, i would guess something belonging to the same family as tubeworms.

    lets see what the others say

    Good morning Maj - sea squirts are good, as are the mini tubeworms in the back.

    The from - almost see-through "thing" is definitely a sea squirt - and the rear "growths" (little tubes growing from the rock) are the mini tube-worms. They too are all good for the aquarium!
