    Hi,
    In week 5 of cycle and found this white fluff growing on some of the live rock.
    I am putting in MB7.
    would like to know what this is if it is good or bad.
    Also have green and red type plates growing from the live rock. Looks like small fans at the moment. Will have photos a bit later. if you look caref[​IMG]ully you might see some green fans type growth on the bottom of the rock.

    Green "plates" looks like algae.

    Is the white fluff growing?

    It's difficult to tell from the photo, but the white "fluff" could be the "nets" of a vermatid snail. I know of people who stated that their corals were damaged by this, but I have never experienced this, and the vermatids are very welcome in my tank.

    Hi guys,
    thanks for the comments. the white fluff is not getting bigger but getting smaller. I introduced a pepperment shrimp into the tank and it seems get smaller. the aiptasia is also almost gone.
    I will get a better camera and take a better phone of the green algae plates and post again.

    "Small fans" sounds a bit like Udotea

    It's anybody's guess based on the photo, though :)
