    The tank started cycling on 23 December 2015.

    When the live rock was introduced it was smooth as.............well rock. Now there is a lot of FUZZ or small tentacles or something growing all over and all the rock are starting to get them.

    Anybody know what this could be? Please don't say they are all Aiptasia!!!!

    It is some sort of algae growth. I had it in my tank as well when I started adding stock to my tank. It should die out if there are not enough nutrients to feed it. Wouldn't stress too much about it ;)

    Most probably. It should disappear in a month or two from my experience. :)

    If you have any coral in your tank then you would need to leave the light on. You can cycle with the lights off if not. ;)
