    Hi again, just a question. I have seen on my live rock that there is two patches about the size of a 10c and 20c coin. The stuff looks like cotton wool, but when i tried to remove it it's rock solid hard and not slymy or anything. My big green tip anemone used to live in that rock cavity, but has since moved and now i am able to see it. What could it be??:eek:

    It is a sponge. I can not remember it's name but it is harmless. It is a filter feeder.

    Leave it. It is good to have. It is a multi cellular organism and part of life in your tank.
