    pH is 8.3 at night and about 8 in the morning. Right im just not sure. I have been doing about a 15G water change every week for past two weeks to see if that helps, it does seem to be going away alittle. Grateful for your input

    How close is the bubble to the other corals? Are you running carbon?

    Is there a ground probe in the tank? How are all the other corals doing?

    UPDATE: I tried moving the bubble and nothing. about 2 days ago, i was looking closey at it and it appeared to have some rather large pieces of sand stuck by its mouth. i waved it around in the water for a while to dislodge them, its now opening up alot more, not as much as before but i think that its doing ok now. thanks everyone

    great i hope its all better.those with things could be either urn sponges,they look like lil white pods about a quarter inch long with a feather duster like fan coming out the top.or they could be sea squirts aka tunicates.usually they grow in colonies and have 2 tubes per pod,one inlet,one outlet.they do filter your water so keep them.
