    coral spawning?

    I have two areas on my live rock that have spontaneously started to grow what looks like milipora. They are really small (approx .5 cm) but no where near (and higher in one case) than my milli colony. Did my coral seed itself? Has anyone else experianced this type of behavior? The live rock has been in the tank since the beginning two years ago so I don't think it was there already and my thin branch milli occasionally breaks and 'frags' itself but this is not that coral.

    I am just amazed...recently my BTA split and now I notice this...I think I am going to have to change my moon lights for red lights :hysterica !!
