No not at all it has been in that position for about 3 weeks, if you look at the pic, there is that round thing on the right of the coral and the slime always seems to be connected between the coral and this thing ?War did u remove the piece from the water or perhaps move it around?
For the life of me I can't remember the name of this thing, but there is a creature that grows in our tanks that frequently releases a mucus or slime into the water column in order to catch 'food' in the water column, it then retracts the mucus in order to feed off of whatever it has caught. I have a load of them growing underneath my plating monti, will try get a pic tomorrow when the lights are on again.No not at all it has been in that position for about 3 weeks, if you look at the pic, there is that round thing on the right of the coral and the slime always seems to be connected between the coral and this thing ?
Any chance this is another coral making it unhappy ?
Flow is strong when that powerhead is on. Took the shot when the powerhead was in an off cycleOk i had a look at the picture again.I dont think u should worry about it.
The slime coat could be a bit of a sand and bacteria buildup.
In fact I am quite sure of it unless whatever is next to it is causing it.
Try and blow it off with bit of indirect current.
What is the flow like in that area anyway?
Not the same although they do have similar characteristics, the spaghetti worms live in tubes made of fine sand and mucus and release long sticky strands (unlike the vermetid which releases a sort of 'net' of mucus) and sweep the reef floor and rocks for food. It looks like long thin strands of spaghetti.hey viper is it the same as a spageti worm?
