    fluo yellow tubeworms ?

    Hey all,

    I have out of my rock what looks like some kind of very small tube worms (hard, a few cm's long getting longer)

    they are very small, only about diameter of 1/2 toothpick at most. Now the intriguiing thing is that they are fluorescent yellow, and the tips seem like they are neon green...

    has anyone seen anything like this before or know what this could be ? I've searched onlune but can't find any pics of anything simillar.


    thanks,
    NIck.

    I've seen them in articles. I can't remember what the name of it is at the moment but it is a calcium based algae similar to Halimeda. It's not a worm or anything. Search more in the algaes for a referance to this. They tend to come and go and won't grow much bigger than about 1" long.
