    Hi all. The other day I noticed a light yellow foam looking growth growing on one of my polyps. It is the size of a small pea. Today I noticed a similar growth on one of my other polyps. Any idea what this is? Is it good/bad? What should I be doing? Your advise will be highly appreciated. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks. Does it make sense for it just to pop up and on 2 different zoas, within a couple of days?
