    Hi Archie, no they are just all over. On corals on the egg crate can't pinpoint at all. I have tried to suck most of it out. Waiting to see if it continues.

    Haha nice one. Yeah I got tons of it as frags. I think it's some slime that is being released by a coral of sorts.. Anyway will keep monitoring.
