Don't even have a guess.. haha

The hair/spider web like stuff on the glass. It has little things "budding" off the main "string"

The two translucent white "tubes". They're soft/squishy. They've been there a while, watched them get bigger and bigger haha. Don't seem to be a threat at all.

No idea on the web looking thing other than it appears to be a plant of some variety. The two white squishy tubes are pineapple sponges- harmless filter feeders.

The webs are from tube worms. They shot that Web out to catch food. I have tons of them in my tank. Harmless.

Well instead of making a new thread ill just use this one again..

This is a lime green "growth" in between some of my Nuclear Green Palys. It has a little clear tube coming off the top of it. There's two different ones right next to each other.

These are the best pics I could get, its a hard spot to photograph.

I have had encrusting sponges like that too, and they have been in and out of water. I think, and haven't looked it up, that the sponges that can't be exposed are the ball and branching sponges. Their are a zillion types in all colors.

Good luck!

For sure a sponge and a really cool one at that. I've had red orange white and a carbon fiber looking one in my tank but never neon green. Great find but Ive noticed zoa/paly rocks seem to be the most frequent places to find them and also they can choke them out a little.bit

Yeah they seem to be "pushing" them away. I like the look of them other than that.
