    these little white slug/ maggot looking things are in my overflow box and in the filters in my sump... anyone know what they are? theyre hard to see cuz of the algae particles but these were the best i could get.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Hard to tell from the images.

    Looks like pods, pineapple sponges and maybe some FW.

    ty for the link, i didnt know they had anything like it. i think they might be pods of some sort but theyre kinda large... theyre shaped like this >--- but small enough that u cant see legs. theyre solid white and about 1/4 of an inch long

    They look like pineapple sponges to me. Harmless filter feeders.

    I agree with some kind of sponge filter feeder I had them where ever there was low to no light they seemed harmless and never appeared anywhere else in the tank where there was direct light

    i agree, now that ive seen the pics i think they might be pineapple sponges. we did find another cool white sponge in our tank a few days ago but its bigger and round about the size of a dime. its good that were startin to find new creatures in our tank. :)
