I dont know but i think it may be some sort of macro algae. When i first got my live rock there was a big peice of it. Then i got a tang and he ate it all It is the little red ball looking thing in the photo.

possum,

There is a red Valonia (not sure if the species name is Valonia, but it looks exactly the same as green bubble algae, but it's red). I'll see if I can dig out a pic in a few minutes.

That would be my guess as well. I didn't know a tang would eat it though.

I finally found what I was looking for ~ it is not actually Valonia, but Botryocladia spp. There is some information on it in this article: >>'Bubble' Algae: Selected Descriptions, Controls and Comments<< -- Horge Cortes-Jorge Jr.

About half-way down the page.

HTH!
