Sponge Outbreak

Hey everyone,
So, yesterday I noticed my clowns starting to act weird, and the water was cloudy. So today, I noticed a whole bunch of white sponges breaking out in the tank. Some look like webs across the rock, others building straight out. Now, I know they are signs of a healthy tank, and harmless, but could they have possibly made the tank cloudy? Never dealt with sponges before.

BTW: The clowns were doing a mating ritual, and now the male is starting to clean up an area of the rocks that he never went to before. Hope it's not babies. Id hate to see them die because I can't raise them .

The cloudiness isn't from sponges or the clowns mating, they don't make such a large mess. Run some carbon on your tank and it'll clear up, as it could be a couple of things.

I do run carbon. That's the thing, the sponges and water happened in close proximity so I thought maybe.

Well, the clowns do kick up sand when they twitch. But it's not enough to make a difference.
