    Q-Tip Sponges...

    Well, I had a few of them in a small area under a rock, but now they are spreading throughout the tank! Even directly under the powerhead flows on the rocks.. And they seem to grow directly over little feather dusters...

    I have 2 Maxi-jet 1200's and a Hagen 301 in the center... So flow is not really a problem...


    Any suggestions??

    Here's a pic:

    This is really common in newer tanks. There's nothing you can do but wait it out, they seem to just disappear on their own in time.
