Hello all!

 

New to the forum. I have a 12 gallon nano reef tank. I’ve had it setup for about 6 months. I originally had a 6 gallon nano, but wanted to add a pair of clownfish so I upgraded to a 12 gallon tank. I will be moving the clownfish to a bigger tank as they grow, which I am currently setting up in a new home we are moving to. Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but I would like some help to identify some pinkish translucent tubes that are growing through out a portion of the tank. Please see attached photos. I appreciate everyone’s help, thank you !!

The tubes are parts of a sponge.

What do you mean by part of a sponge? It will grow into a sponge? Any recommendations on caring for them? I’m guessing they hitchhiked on a frag I purchased. Thanks!

It is a sponge. 

 

Sponges have pores that allow for the intake and outtake of water and gases. 

 

No special care required. Some sponges are photosynthetic and some are not.
