Hmm, howd they get into the filters from live rock? and why?? Do they live in filter??? What about the sponge, how did that manage to slip though the strainer tip of the filter and go into the canister? LOL

Also, there is a tube like thing, it looks kinda like a feadther dusters tube, with the tan color, but its not that big around, but a long tube. It has kinda like a shield that protects itself, and whenever I feed flakes a snail looking thing comes out and snatches a floating flake, I mean it doesnt go out much, it will just get the flake when its about to hit the tube, its really neat!

Sounds safer than in the tank if they are in the filter and not in the tank, right now I have them all over my tank, I fallow right now and those little buggers are everywhere.

Maybe part of a larger sponge that broke or was torn off and got in the water colum and ended up there. and it could have been in your filter the last time you changed them and when you pulled the filter out it was able to go past it.

Me to Gerald, man those things multiply fast with no fish around.
Teen, no worries, this is all stuff that is the sign of good water quality.

Oh yea that sponge thingy I was talking about, there is not bigger one in my tank, maybe it was just seeded there? Btw, my sponge looks and feels like a carwash sponge, are washing sponges same thing as aquarium sponges????
