    hi everyone,
    Just got a colony of aqua blasto merlettis and as im qt-ing it, i noticed these round things at the bottom of the blasto skeleton stalk. Are these eggs of something bad or nothing? Thx for the input.

    Hard to tell with pics. Is there something inside those structures or empty? Best to wait and keep in qt either way.

    Are tunicates like this bad? Ive since broken fragged the colony and scrapped off the greenish bubble egg looking thing until i only saw the purplish skeleton structure. Glued the skeleton stalks to rubble and glued over any questionable areas. Hopefully its not flatworms cause i thought they only attack sps not lps like blastos. Also when i searched flatworms the description is rust-colored eggs not greenish. Anyway they remain in qt.

    My bad I was looking at something else that looked like a possible flat worm. Good job with QT!
