Weird pink thing attached to base of torch coral

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the reefing hobby and noticed a pink thing attached to the base of my torch. After some googling I thought it might have been a flat worm, but I don't think it is as it hasn't moved. It has a hole on it with a clear looking tubing around it as seen in the picture. Anyone have any ideas what this is?

Looks like a sponge. Possible a wild collected coral. My leather has a similar growth underneath.

Will it harm my corals if I leave it?

Most likely no. Some can be aggressive growers in the right conditions. Worst case scenario you can just tweeze it off.
