My 55 Marine is coming to life now at about 3 months since the first batch of live rock. I have all sorts of fun things popping out. Copepods and macros and such, but one has me very curious. I have searched and searched but can not find any info about it. It first appeared when a batch of featherdusters popped out. At first I thought they were featherdusters. They started out as tiny 1/8in tubes with a white tip surrounded by ,I think, a disk with 4 white dots that would form a square if connected with a line. My second thought was aiptasia anemones so I got on guard with a watchful eye. The tubes never get ant bigger than 1/8in long, they don't seem to have tentacles or anything, except for these 1 or 2 in long pinkish brown strings that resemble algae. It all has a pinkish brown color. I tried to take some pictures but they just look like algae. You can't see the little tubes. It isn't growing way out of control,but fast. This may be largely due to my recent water quality issues. Nitrates just kept getting out of hand. All the filters in the world don't amount to much until they are cycled, so water change water change. Anyway, if anyone has seen anything like this before and knows what it is, I'd appreciate help. ???
