Liverock stowaways.

I have a 20Gallon long. Two Damsels and 2lbs of live rock.

I have encountered a couple of bristle worms and have removed one and left the other. But on the live rock itself white fuzzy balls are growing in the surface. What are these? Should I be concerned? What should I do about them?

A pic would help, but from what you desribe, Syconoid Sponges sounds likely.

You can leave the bristle worms. They are great for digging in the substrate. the litlle fuzzy balls are most likely sponges. They are just fine. Can you post any pics of them?
