Any idea what these are?

So I have nothing like this in my tank. Found them growing in the shadows on a piece of live rock

I used a blue led flashlight to light them up. They are completely in shadows.

They sort of look like a receding flower pot coral?

sometimes when you buy wild corals you can get another species attached to the rock that came with the coral, that means your tank is doing very good
