It is growing and about 1/2-3/4" now and just recently noticed the last picture on nearby rock. Anyone know what it is?

Last one looks like a sponge of some type. You can browse through http://www.wetwebmedia.com/sponges.htm to see if you can id it.

The first 4 still look like a sponge to me...tunicates are usually more regular looking than that.

Looks like the top of a coco worm.
