    Not so helpful LFS?

    After reading a bunch, I recently took the plunge into collecting what I need for a FOWLR tank. I've had freshwater tanks, but this will be my first SW tank.

    White Fiber/Strands on Frogspawn Coral

    Anyone have an idea what these white fibers/strands/hairs are on my frogspawn coral? I can't tell if it's coming FROM the coral or if it's just wrapped around. I can say though that it's gotten more pronounced and it is moving onto/attaching to the rock as you can see. The coral itself is always...
