    Thanks for your comments

    Initial tank fill was straight rainwater 2nd week 20% water change used straight rainwater through a water purifier which removes heavy metals and chlorine.

    Don't use tap water. How are you collecting rain water?

    1st pic looks like a bunch of polyps closed up
    2nd pic looks like a sponge
    3rd pic is algae (check phosphate levels)
    and the white stuff looks like coraline that has died of ,

    I wouldnt use rain water in your tank even if it is filtered, as rain water contains a certain ammount of acid , and without testing you dont whats in it ,, i would use ro/di
    This has come up in a few other forums also water straight from the sea , this too has proven to be not a good idea as there is a lot of stuff dumped in the ocean and depending on the region you will have different things in there ,,
