The orange growth in the second pic
The green moss like growth in the third and the white in the last pic any hints would be appreciated (**** lol)

Thanks for your comments

Initial tank fill was straight rainwater 2nd week 20% water change used straight rainwater through a water purifier which removes heavy metals and chlorine.

1st pic looks like a bunch of polyps closed up
2nd pic looks like a sponge
3rd pic is algae (check phosphate levels)
and the white stuff looks like coraline that has died of ,

I wouldnt use rain water in your tank even if it is filtered, as rain water contains a certain ammount of acid , and without testing you dont whats in it ,, i would use ro/di
This has come up in a few other forums also water straight from the sea , this too has proven to be not a good idea as there is a lot of stuff dumped in the ocean and depending on the region you will have different things in there ,,
