They are limpets. No worries, very harmless. Probably came from you LR.

Not 100% sure, but I believe some kind of worms. I get them too.

That white stuff above the rock looks very foul! I could tell you what it looks like to me, but thats just not very nice. I have never had anything like that. I am going to hang around this thread to see if someone knows what it is.

Been thinking about this.
Since spaghetti worms are broadcast spawners, I would guess its a spawn.

I would tend to agree with Quarry shark, however I've never seen mine this bad I have had the same thing in smaller scale in my tank in the last couple weeks. I wouldnt worry to much about it personally, suck it out if need be. I left mine in their and it disappeared in a day or so.
