Hard to tell with those blurred pics, but I would guess lymphocystis. Usually improved water quality will help it go away.

I'll post a fresh set as soon as i get home.
As of monday, it was:

Temp 77.5*F
PH 8.2
Ammonia 0
nitrite 0
nitrate ~10
gravity/salinity 1.024

i'm using the Quick Dip test strips. I also had my LFS test my water that day and he stated that my nitrates was a bit high. So I read up on the forums here and did a pwc and removed the sponges from my Canister filter so that it only contains the ceramic bio rings and some rubble rock.

You may want to drop the salinity over a few days to around 1.020, it will make it easier on him....

ok guys i'm kinda freakin out. Today when I left home to go to work, my sister came over and thought that the trigger was lonely and dumped him into my DT. I'm still at work for 4 more hours. My sis said she placed him in there maybe and hour or 2 after i had left. So thats about 7 hours in the DT tank with 4 more to go. I'm not gonna ask her to remove him in fear of her hurting something or herself in the process. How bad is this?
