    Hey everyone! So I have been noticing this white "bubble tip" algae growing. I call it bubble tip because some of it almost looks like a bubble tip anemone tentacle. Anyone ever heard of this? I will try to get a picture up in a few. I looked through the algae sticky and couldn't find it.

    Thanks!

    Looks like sponges. Possibly scypha sponges. Harmless filter feeders.
