parasite inside mushroom?, white worm thing??

Hi guys!

I just bought a rock with plenty of orangey mushroom.

After I placed in my tank, not one but almost all the mushroom mouth has some of white curling thing onzing out from it.

are these parasite? or their "intestine"

When i touch the white curling thing, it didn't move

Thanks!!

They are called mesenterial filaments. Commonly they are used as a means of feeding/defense but can also show up when the coral is stressed. If newly aquired, it could be a stress reaction. Test all you water specs to be sure everything is in order, possibley a few water changes to be safe, add some carbon to remove any chemical remnants and be sure it/they are not too close to another coral species.

Cheers
Steve
