Hello ! So my tank is Running since about 2 months and everything is fine with the parameters . I got 2 clownfish and some cuc and corals . 2 days ago I got a new chalice with like „white stuff“ on the plug . Today I went and look around and found some „white stuff“ on the rock too . I’m a bit worried because I don’t know what it is so please Someone can tell me if it’s ok or bad ? All my corals got dipped before going into the tank !

It’s probably coraline algae then. If that’s the case, it’s a good thing. Most reefers want it in the purple color but it also can be white.
Thank you very much ! Wow I didn’t know that it can be white too ! Thank you so it’s nothing to worry about ?

White means it's dead or dying.

Looks like the stuff on the plug is dead coralline. At least it certainly looks calciferous.

The picture on the rock is hard to tell. Can you remove the blue from the lights and take another pic?
