Your tank isn't cycled? Or did you have some kind of fish death?

It's just a white sponge, really don't worry about it. It won't do any harm, sometimes they grow out straight, other times they look like webs. The only problems you could have is over running weak colonies. You can just pull it off now though.

Growth on live rock

Our tank is cycled and no fish deaths. This sponge thing looks thick and also like it has webs all over it. How fast do sponges normally grow? From what everyone says they are good to have so I don't want to take it all out, I just don't want it taking over the whole live rock. I was able to get better pic of it.

They're pretty slow but can be fast depending on nutrient levels. Cool sponge though

It's growing so I don't think it died LOL. But I thought it looked like a sponge that had some weird web growth on it haha. As long as it's not harmful and benefits the tank I'm totally fine with it. It looks pretty cool so see it growing. Thanks for all the advice and help everyone.
