Hi everyone, this is all over my tank, in the sand bed, on the rocks and on some of my equipment, I'm not sure what it is whether it's algae or something completely different, and it flows in the current like a coral, this is my first saltwater tank, and has been running for about a year. I do have a bit of an algae problem on the glass which I'm trying to get rid of with water changes and scrubbing, so not sure if that has anything to do with. Hope someone can help, thank you in advance!

That looks like some sort of worm / filter feeder.


Oh ya howdy

Looks like feather dusters, and a lot of them. Did you always have them or did something spawn?
