    Hi All

    My new tank is cycling with LR for about 2 weeks now. I have noticed this odd sponge looking growth on one of the rocks. An ID would be appreciated :

    My second query relates to what looks like eggs stuck to one of the rocks :

    Thanks

    no
    Nerita eggs are laid independently from each other. Normally a gap between the of a few millimetres if not even more than 10mm. They are glued to the surface, normally tank glass but any smooth surface will do. And definitely not on a string.
