    what is this?

    Does anyone know what this is? It sort of appeared on some live rock I'm curing. Thanks.

    It's hard to tell from that pic.

    Let me ask you does it have (you'd see it from a profile position) (_) funnel type openings? If so it's probably some sea squirts if not maybe some sponge?

    It seems to be a mass of stringy bits. The ends can all move in the current. I can't see any openings, but it's on a piece of rock supporting more rock, so I'll need to move some around to get a better look.

    From the way you described it I'm not sure that's what you have but you never know. Those are good links anyhow
