I think it is Stylaster californicus (California Hydrocoral). If you ever dive Tanner Bank you will find colors vary from dark purple, to red and pink. Stylantheca porphyra (Encrusting Hydrocoral) also has similar color variations.

This sponge has me stumped.

I would be happy for help you can give with IDs.
