    Welcome to R2R! #WelcometoR2R

    I believe what you're looking at is a type of digitate hydroid.

    Welcome to R2R! #WelcometoR2R
    Can you please provide pictures of the fish in question so we can better determine what sickness were dealing withm White spots are most commonly either ich, velvet, or lymphocysts. If its ich or velvet you'll want to move all fish over to a quarantine tank and treat them with chloroquine phosphate or copper and let the main tank sit without fish for up to 78 days. Remember to never treat illness in your display tank. If its lymphocysts there isnt much that can be done. It's a viral infection which cannot be treated. Just maintain great water quality and keep the fish fed with vitamin enriched foods :)

    My guess is small bubbles that have small particulates from your sand or dry rock caught up in them being that both are brand new. Have you tried brushing them away?

    #welcometoR2R that’s a carpet anamone I believe .. the algae is probably green hair algae but I can’t really see it on the pictures .. have you got any test kits yet for testing for nitrite , nitrate, phos , ammonia .. these tests you will need first and later too test for calcium , magnesium, alkalinity.. without these first tests you won’t know if your tank has cycled .. also anamones need light to survive .. so this is also important
    Here’s a link for you too read
    It’s normal to get some algae in a new tank even when starting with live rock and sand ..

    Unfortunately the one towards the top looks dead to me. The one below it doesn't look good either. #welcometor2r
