    im battling cyano and this dead frag is covered in it. Then I noticed there are 3 green tubes or worms on it. Don't think it's bad but who knows.
    I've been out of work for a month so most of my attention is finding a job. Tank maintenance has been slacking. Thanks!

    Tell us a little about your frag, like when you got it.

    They appear to be a type of algae. They usually do not last long in our tanks and are not a problem.

    Thanks reply.
    Its a milli frag from about 8 months ago. Died about a month ago but haven't taken out yet. Been battling cyano and noticed it was covered in it. That's when I saw it. I've been in hobby 5 years and would like to think I've seem most everything. Except I haven't :)
