if i replied, it was a generic, looks like snail eggs reply....seeing as I am not sure what this is, I wouldnt have said I knew what they were....just as I think the white things are sponges, does not mean i know what kind of sponges.

I am interested in EXACTLY what these are, not generically speaking.

Thanks for the ID on the first one Tim.

from the picture they almost look like they have a crystaline structure. Are the filiments stiff or do they flow in the current?

white cotten ball filaments

mine appear to sway, although they are usually stretched out and reaching for other nearby surfaces, rock and glass.. the balls look soft.

Syconoid Sponges

Hi there Hara, 'Lisa" i think,,, in case you weren't in the chat room when we finally found these sponges, the white cotton balls with the filiments are Syconoid Sponges. The site said they are a good sign of a balanced tank and they are harmless, beneficial filter feeders but can get to plague porportions if the tank gets out of balance..
