    Hi Guys

    I noticed yesterday that there was a blue sponge coral that came on a rock with zoa's on now it has grown so fast towards my sps frag. It is almost on it. My question is will this be a problem? should i move my sps frag?

    Thank you

    Some sponge doesn't like air maybe take the rock out & scrub the rock & give it a good RO rinse. Maybe that will help.

    Blue sponge grows at incredible rate and will grow over eveything, it is very difficult to eradicate.
