    im guessing but i think they are small swa squirts or turnicates.. they are good for filter feeding and water filtration.. they normally occur in the early stages of setting up a tank and after fish addition are most commonly found in the sump or inaccessable areas in the rockwork.. places where fish cant get to them to nibble...

    a closeup would allow less speculation but i understand that is sometimes difficult.. overall a positive sign :)

    Thanks, ye will try post a better closeup later, my camera tho :/ don't think it'll handle it.

    Tanks been up and running for about a week with LR 3 days ago.

    I've got something else I'm not sure what it is but looks interesting, good just be algae, will post a pic of that too.

    Soz, I tried to get a closer up picture, but that's as far as I can zoom. Thanks again everyone, I can already see why people get hooked on this hobby ;)
