Hello reefers, im hoping someone can help identify what is coming out of my chalice coral. It may be hard to tell in picture but it has polyp like arms coming out of it with balls on the end similar to a torch coral. Seems to have happened during lights out

I have attatched a video that may help. If it is a ball anenome how should I get rid of it. If I should at all

Can’t see video. Since it’s in the middle of your chalice I’d remove it. Otherwise it could sting the coral. You’ll want to try to scrape it off from where it’s at. Trick will be not damaging the coral. If you don’t mind nuking it, injecting with vinegar, kalk slurry or boiling water should nuke it.

It is coming from multiple mouths so the sweeper tentacles make sense. I just looked up ball anenome and it doesn't look quite like an actual anemome, but I can see how my description brought that conclusion, I appreciate yalls input!

Are your corals ever subjected to the open air with no water for water changes or tank maintenance?
