Alright... so I'm not sure what has been happening lately, but apparently over the past few days my tank has had a growth explosion.

My front glass in all of a sudden covered in 1/16-1/8" spots of coraline purple dots. My Koralias are covered in bigger spots as well.

I have found about 6-8 tiny white snails on the glass as well, and what's more I have about 40 small white / clear things that look like tiny snowflakes...

Can anyone tell me what these are? No way of taking a picture as they are about 1mm in size.

They look like a tiny dot with 5-8 tiny "arms" coming off of them.

I hope and pray to the aquaria gods that I didn't just get an aptasia outbreak!

I think the "Snowflakes" are Brittle Stars. I think that is what they are called. If that is the case, I have seen lots of threads that say that is a good thing. I would search Google for brittle stars and see if they match up.

Well, I do have a ton of 1-2" brittle stars in the rocks that are always flailing their arms around, but this is the first time I've seen the micro-sized version. I'll check it out - thanks!

RD- I looked up pics on Google of baby brittle and it seems that we have a winner. Other people said a small jellyfish, but I doubt that.

On another note... I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT!

ATI lights to be exact. I just came back from LFS where I purchased (2) specials and (2) blue +'s, and I can not come close to describing in words how much of an incredible difference it has made in my tank.

My corals have NEVER popped so much. Everything in the tank looks phenomenal!

This may have been the biggest bang for the buck upgrade I have ever made.

Stunning.
