Sorry to hear . In reading up on ich treatment I decided on doing hypo and there was an article that discussed many benefits to saltwater fish in hypo and they talked about it reducing the stress on the fish for water exchange or something like that which reserves energy, makes them more likely to start eating, etc...ill see if I can find it because I know I'm not stating all the facts correctly. It sounds like a good way to QT a new fish that may not be a great eater or something to try when you see signs of stress in a fish. One important note is they must be put into hypo slowly and brought out of hypo even slower.

Found some yellow spongy stuff growing on two of my corals. I took them out and scraped the stuff off with a knife that came in my frag kit. I gave both corals a good bath in revive before going back in the tank. Here is a picture of one of the corals with the stuff on them.

Those are sponges, pretty much harmless, no need to remove them and do dip.

Calcarious sponges (or pineapple sponges some people call them). Harmless filter feeders. Very common when water quality is good.

Thanks Greg. I thought it might be some sort of cocoon for spaghetti worms. I had them in my 20 gallon long tank when it was set up in my office. Do you see the little tubes extending off of one of them. That's where the little worms come out.

Here is a couple of pictures of the cocoons from my 20 gallon when it was set up.

29 gallon coral reef move.

That looks more like a tunicate.
Still harmless.
