    Can anybody ID this?

    What is this white tree like thing sprouting from my rock, it has a slimey/rubber looking texture and has taken over the back of the rock in which it resides, we are talking about a 9 inch long rock!
    Also if you look lower part, it appears to have tube like holes and the tree part is soft and moves with the currents!?!?!
    In the pic, it looks like two different entities, but it is one creature/sponge/alien strung together...

    Looks like a sponge to me. Harmless.

    It is super freaky looking!!!


    Why is it here/growing so fast?
    Will it eventually blanket my tank?
    I am moving all my rock to a new tank shortly... should he come with?

    Thx!

    I say let it be.. adds to the fun of the hobby. keep a close eye..but most likely a sponge or invert of some kind. real cool looking

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.
