Can anyone identify this stuff growing on my live rock?
It looks clear/ turquoise an here and there you can see a small white tube sticking out (when in the water) and it grows prettly slowly but steadily on my live rock.
I'm just wondering if this is a problem?

I'll throw a guess out. I think its just a sponge. Nothing that is going to do any harm.. actually helpful. I have numerous amounts of them in my tank

Looks like either a sponge or maybe a tunicate
 
Either way, not harmful
 
But don't keep exposing it to air or you may kill it
