Looks like a type of sponge but would love another opinion

Not sure what I'm supposed to be looking at. The small white sponge in the center?

Are they purple or is it just your lighting?
Can you take a pic without the purple haze channels on?

My first guess would be codium fragile algae.. it can have a purple shade to it sometimes..

Carteriospongia vermifera I believe.

Yes after a google search of Carteriospongia vermifera that's what it is.
Thanks

Not lots of info out there.
Any experience with it.

Given the right conditions it just kind of does what it does, grow... It's definitely not a bad thing though. If it becomes an eyesore it's real easy to prune & relocate. GL.
