So my redsea reefer has this jelly like growth in the sump every week or 2. I've been doing my best to keep it in check. Doing 30% water changes every 2-3 weeks, swapping filter socks every 2-5 days. Running chemi pure blue and carbon. Using RODI water and redsea coral pro salt (black) salinity between 1.024 and 1.026. Livestock includes clowns, pygmi angel, algae blenny and foxfire. Coral is about a dozen fuzzy mushrooms, toadstool leather, RBTA, and frogspawn coral. There are random sponge growth under rocks too.

First wondering if anyone can identify.
second what is solution for removal
third how to avoid this in the future

Either a sponge or bacterial mat. Either way, it’s harmless (and actually most likely beneficial), but if it’s blocking flow or clogging pumps, or is out of control, you can get rid of it.
