I am pretty sure this is Doriopsilla carneola, which is very variable in colour. Its nice to see it on a sponge, which may turn out to be its food sponge. Interestingly the white specks on the mantle seem to mimic the whhite specks on the sponge. It may be a complete coincidence, but may be worth looking out for in the future.
