    I have noticed some sort of white growth on my zoas. Not exactly sure what it is and the zoas open up just fine. I like of looks like I made a trail of super glue gel between the polyps. I got a decent picture but it is very blue from the CF-Quad lights. You can sort of see what I am talking about around the right side of the colony. I had to poke them a little so they close up so you can see it.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Looks like snail eggs to me, Certh maybe. I would just take a turkey baster and see if you can blow them off.

    Looks like Cerith snail eggs to me too. Here's a pic of some I had on an empty Mexican Turbo snail shell.
