Look at my rocks

What is on them?

To me it looks like diatoms again? and I'm not sure what the neon green stuff is. Could it be coraline algae? Probably just the nuisance stuff.

Also, does anyone see any pods? I wouldn't know what to look for.

I am getting fish that are reef safe in case I get good at this and decide I want to do a reef!

I don't want to eliminate that possibility. I also just purchased some lighting that will be sufficient for some corals and stuff.

So it looks that way! I just can't be sure because I suck at fishkeeping so far. Learning though.

I just read this while looking up coraline algae. Is this true?

Quote:
Coralline Algae must be physically brought into your tank in order for it to reproduce and populate the various surfaces.
If so, I have not physically brought any to my tank.

Did you seed your rock? If so you probably brought in some coraline. I have green coraline growing on my base rock and it looks exactly like that.

I have the same exact thing! I moved some empty shells that my large hermits weren't using to the very top of the tank and they started turning brown. I have the neon green algae on only one of my LR, but I also have purple "blobs" growing on all of my LR and I'm guessing thats also coraline algae
