Any ideas?

I have noticed some white "things" behind my powerheads and in my skimmer chamber. They are about the size of a grain of rice...they are shapped almost like a football with a little crown on top. I saw something about calcium worms??? Is this what they could be? I know its hard to tell without a pic, but I don't have a digital camera. Thanks

If it looks like a small white pineapple, it is most likely a scypha cilliata sponge
