    Question Help with ID

    Can some one tell me what these are, they are on my live rock. Just want to make sure that they are not bad for the tank.

    Thanks
    Scott

    If I am seeing what I think I am seeing- little spnoges, they are perfectly fine.
    Always keep in mind that of the kazillion organisms that can come into your tank on live rock, 99% of them are perfectly fine.

    ok, there are just over 30 of them on the one piece of rock, so I was a bit curious.

    they are probably helping to filter the water.

    Just was looking around the tank and found that these same "little spnoges" are also located in the flex tubing that is in my tank. Would it be normal for these to spread to an area like that?
