    Baby suncorals?

    Hey everyone, I was looking at my tank last night and I noticed the very small yellow polyps on my LR, they are everywhere (mostly under overhangs). Could these be baby suncorals?? Here are a few pictures, I don't have a zoom on my camara so the pictures aren't very good.







    And mom (I think?)

    looks like tube worms from what i see. do they look like feather dusters? sun corals dont "sprout" everywhere and they dont usually like direct light. cave dwellers. alteast i think.

    Are you in Ottawa again or still in New York?

    Oh, and sorry for the HiJack. I agree with Principl Skimmer that these are more likely fan worms. I have a couple that look similar.

    I don't think they are feather dusters, looks more like a coral of some sort. I've read that sun corals can spawn? When it gets bigger I'll take a better picture.
