thin white threads

hello,

I have something thats growing in my rock that has long thin white, almost clear threads that it sends out to the other rocks. Whenever my purple tang comes by and picks at the rock its on it retreats and goes somewhere else.

But all the threads originate from one rock.

Thanks in advance.

They're beneficial to have around, not to worry.

Is the tank in your gallery what you have the purple tang in? What is it a 30-40 gallon?
