I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Carey wins the coveted "No Prize" award. Those are the starter colonies of Coraline algae that do turn purple as soon as it gets a bit bigger...at least that is what I have to continuously scrape off my front glass, I let it spread on the back walls and that is how it started. It will turn purple about the time it gets 1/4" in diameter if We are right.

I'll leave em on the back and sides and see what follows. I suppose I was just worried as it only just started appearing and I have gobs of coralline on the glass. Also the dots are oval shaped with an almost yellow center suggesting to me a living animal (snail, slug, etc.)

I'll leave them for sure though, I can always use more coralline!

Oh those are spirals...I have solid circles or ovals of it. I think these are different than spirobid worms.

Guess it depends on which circles you have. if they are have circular ridges then its the worms.

be it coraline, feather dusters or sponges I'd leave it on the back like everyone else has said. The sponges and FD's are both filter feeders.

So I decided since my wrasse went missing that I could add a 5th fish to the tank. Went looking today and found a good candidate: pink spotted watchman goby.

Now my stock is: (2) B/W clowns, purple firefish, Midas blenny, pink spot goby.

I'll try to get a better pic later as this was immediately after the four hour lights out during acclimation.
