    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to the forum so excuse me if I'm posting in the wrong place.
    I have a new growth in my tank. Almost like a spiral seaweed looking plant.

    Does anyone know what it may be?

    That looks similar to a nudibranch egg ribbon.

    It depends on what nudibranch it is. Try to find the nudi and take a pic of it. Then we can try and get that identified.

    Thats the part that confusing me! I've never had any in this tank before? I tested once before in my quarantine tank but never lasted. Ill have another look tonight and see if I can spot one.

    Berthellina citrina is a likely suspect. Pretty sure they have yellow eggs. Quite a common species.
