Can anyone help me identify what the clear/cloudy stuff all over my zoanthiads?
When I do my water changes I try my hardest to clear it all out because it looks like it is irritating the zoanthiads but it just keeps coming back.

Any idea how to get rid of it or at least keep it off or away from the zoanthiads. I am constantly removing this stuff because it looks like it is an irritation to the coral

Ive had and currently have some kind of sponge on some of my corals. They were irritating my zoas too. I took the coral out and carefully picked and scraped it out from around my corals with a toothpick or skewer. It's come back on some corals but not as bad. And others I think I removed it all and don't see it any more.

Its poriferan sponge which can be invasive. It is harmless but invasive and two ways to rid of it.
A hobbyist xacto knife cutting it away carefully or A full size angel who may also eat the zoa
