I have no clue yet on what the scientific name is.
I do know however that its a very annoying.
I try with a tooth brush to remove it but it grows so fast it keeps turning back with in days.

Anyone who has experience with this stuff and how to battle it?




All the help is appreciated

looks like you have some kind of clove polyp , I heard de worming medication works for them but i dont know how that will effect the rest of the corals in your tank.

Yeah febenzadole, it will kill most soft corals and gorgonians. Zoas, mushrooms, lps and sps will survive the treatment

I thought anthelia were more elongate but anyway yep the dewormer will work just remember to remove your softies , also if you have blue ridge or organ pipe remove them too since they're softies.
