    Also noticed a ticking noise in my tank every now and then and at first thought its just my tank, but then i read up and noticed that there are some hitchikers that actually make this kind of noise in the tank as they dig. what are they and how do i get them out?

    The ticking noise is most probably a pistol shrimp.

    No idea what the white blob is. Does it move around?

    Cannot get a better picture, but it was not there when I put the rock in. I will check tonight if it moved.
