Noticed something on a rock that looked like red pillow stuffing swaying in the currents. Got to looking closer and found about 5 spots totaling the size of a quarter of this stuff. I looked around and couldn't find anything to match. Done a parameter check on nitrate and phosphate and both showed 0. Changed out 50g of water anyway just in case. Don't know what it could be? It's too small to get a picture of.
Fyi,feed omega 1 flakes every other day, and ocean nutrition pellets for the shrimp and crab. The snails get a piece of nori every 3 days. All food is gone within 5 min.
The hair looked the closest. It is nowhere near that bad though. I checked this morning and my lone hermit was pickin at the spots I seen. Maybe I'm still feeding too much. All the food i can see is gone in 5min or less, maybe a good chunk is going down the overflow to the sump?
I'll try when I get home tonight. The spots were all together smaller than a quarter so it will be difficult at best. How do you guys get the phone pics to work? My new camera has a 55-200mm lens and I don't think it can zoom in enough to get a decent pic.
That's how small the spots were. It's about an inch on the picture to the left of the coralline spot. It's dark red in color. I wanted to nip it in the bud before it becomes a problem. It hasn't spread anymore, I think that's because of my hermit. I seen him picking at it this morning.
