    They are perfectly safe and a sign that they are happy and reproducing- they must have come on the live rock and now that the conditions are right for them they, they are gettin' busy- you can probably clean them off the front glass with your cleaning magnet.

    they seem to be hard I used my finger nail to squash it and it crackled so it is a hard shell or crustacean of some sort.

    I don't know what they are called, I think they are in the same family as feather duster type worms, only with a hard shell.
