White Stringy Stuff?

I just added 45 lbs of LR from tampabaysaltwater. I am so excited and I cant wait til it clears up. I added carb-sea sand after the rock.

I see a lot of white stringy things in the tank through the fog. Does anybody know what this is?

Could be spagetti worms. Hard to tell without pic.

I`m going to move this to the identification forum where you will get more appropiate advice.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

Are your white strings retracting? If not, it could just be sludge or something from die off of the rock. I'm assuming this rock was shipped so it may also be animals in the rock purging themselves so to speak after the long, dry trip (wastes, spawning, etc).
