I noticed something that looked like snail eggs in my overflow chamber last week when I did a water change. I scraped it off and wouldn’t ya know I have at least 10 in all 3 chambers of my Evo 13.5. At first it reminded me of the ramshorn snail egg sacks in my freshwater but on closer inspection it almost looks like it has little point on the surface of it like hair follicles. I don’t like it. It’s kind of flesh colored. The biggest is almost the size of a dime. The back chambers butt right up against a wall and it was super hard to get a picture but I’ve included a couple.

Since it’s getting more abundant I’m hoping it isn’t an invasive ick.

Probably a sponge. Good things.
I wonder if there is a sponge id chart. The last thing I asked about was a white stringy looking blob and that was a sponge. They are like aliens and could look like a zillion different things I guess.

I have blue, red, yellow, orange, and white in my tank and they all look very different.
