I recently started seing this tube like things on my rock and i cant figure out what it is. Now i noticed it started growing on acouple corals but it does not seem to do any damage to the coral itself. Any idea what it is??

He's not talking about the corals I don't think. It's had to tell with out a closer shot but it looks like it may be a type of sponge.

I'm sorry.... Now that I got a closer look at the rocks, it does looks like sponges and micro feather dusters. A much better pic will be better.

It's blurry so kinda hard to see. I'll have to go with possibly sponges as well but not really sure...

I don't know of any. But sponges don't cause any harm.
