ID Please

I have noticed this bulge growing on the frag plug at the base of a Green Humilis Acropora. It almost appears shell like and I see two black what appear to be antenna or something coming out. Definitely some type of invertebrate but I don't know if it is good or bad. Sorry for the terrible photo quality. It is tiny so it is tough to get a good picture of it.

We need a better pic. Does it move? Is it encrusted on the rock? Do the antenna thingies retract? At this point I'd guess sponge or sea squirt.

It does not move and seems to be attached to the rock. It has doubled in size in about 2 months. The two antenna do retract and when they come out they come out about an inch. Here is a different angle.

I'll second a sea squirt but your pictures aren't clear enough for a positive ID.
