    Hi just want to know, this morning i looked at my live rock and saw coming from this which looked like a puff of white smoke ( discharge of some sort) where it came from i saw something very small inside the rock (almost looked like a mussel of some sort) but its too small to really see...or even take a photo of... This thingy released about 6 puffs of white stuff into the water....any idea what this might have been???

    WOW! A "ghost from our past"! Welcome back Siyaha! Great to see you on the forum again!

    This could be spawning - or even perhaps an exhaust of detritus that was disturbed inside the life rock....
