    Hi guys,

    I have noticed white hair growths all over a piece of LR. Some are larger tho, they just seem to sway in the water but have spread over that particular rock in a few days.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you in advance.

    After some research, found out that this is a scypha sponge. Link below describes it to the tee, filter feeder. Not harmful to the tank.
