    Not so much specific name as, it's the name "us" hobbyist give it, I've also heard it called Q-tip sponge.
    Completely harmless, they tend to grow in the shaded areas of the tank and are considered to be filter feeders.

    No worries, I wasn't commenting on your comment so much as the desire for everyone to put a name on everything. Its a tiny sponge...best description you could give it since we do not know the scientific name of it. I'm not a fan of common names at all, they make for lot of confusion.
