    Pineapple with fur?

    Ok i didnt take a pic but its pretty straight forward.
    Closest thing to match this is FORAMINIFERANS or TUNICATES
    But i would like to know 100%, cant find exacly what it is.

    Its literally a little pineapple, hairy like with feather on top.
    I got like gazillions growing everywhere nowdays...

    Do i need a pic?

    scypha sponge, a small calcareous sponge that feeds on suspended food ( filter feeder ). if you're having a bit of an outbreak, you may want to cut back on feedinga a little. they're harmless and reef safe, HTH
