    Tank is a biocube 14g
    Upgraded pump, uv light, refugium with cheato+mangrove, ai prime light and aqua ato.


    Salinity 1.025
    Ph. 8.2
    Phophate near 0
    Nitrate near 0
    Calcium 450

    The tank is almost 2 months old and understandably still going through the motions as expected. What I didn't expect was these guys


    Very hard to photograph but they look like small white jelly filled sacks all over my back return chamber. Any idea what they could be?

    Could it be snail eggs?

    I have read about pineapple sponges but haven't found a picture of them online to compare to what's in my tank.

    As far as snail eggs goes, could be a possibility that a snail went back there, laid eggs and then crawled back into the display.

    I'm hoping it's not a pest of any kind. I've been very maticulous with dipping and cleaning corals and inspecting them carefully but I know this isn't a stop all just reduces the possibility of a pest getting in my tank.
