    Evening all. I have this coral which I can’t identify. I believe it is some sort of leather coral? Just today it has started to produce white stringy matter. Anyone have any idea what it may be. Thanks

    It's just releasing slime. No worries there, mine do it all the time. It's just being a healthy coral.

    Just trying to blow it off gently with a turkey baster, and you're good.

    Great thankyou. Don’t suppose you know what the little green bubbles are attached to the coral rock? It came from the store like that

    Bubble algae, pull it out in some old tank water and try to peel them off without popping them! or brush them off in old tank water then rinse in another container or water. That way the spores don't go back onto it or back into the tank. That stuff is a pain to get rid of...hate it!
