I noticed these little round things popping up in several places recently. Any idea what they are? Some kind of eggs maybe?

My tank has been established over a year, but relocated about a month ago. Inhabitants are trochus snails, hermits, 1 peppermint shrimp, 1 emerald crab, 1 clown, 1 six line, and 1 goby.

If you remove by hand be careful as you could release spores that will only create more. If you can tolerate the bubble algae use a clean up crew which should help

As above poster said, try not to pop the bubbles while you manually remove or you will just spread your problem. I had a small batch pop up a few years ago. Use some of my coral tools to scrape them off the rocks from their bases and scooped out with a net. Never saw them reappear.
