Can you remove them with a brush? It kind of looks like Cyanobacteria IMO.

Picture isn't the best..
See Corynactis (Strawberry Anemone) here

Is that what you have?
If so they are harmless...

This sounds more like Foraminiferans. (harmless)

The one on the right is a Strawberry Anemone. Not sure about the rest. Possibly Foraminiferans or small patches of Coralline algae.
