    As the title states I have white tracks in my coralline algae. It looks like it's been eaten away. It's just happened over the past week or so. I have 3 hermits (2 blue legs and a scarlet), 2 turbos, 2 margaritas, a couple stomatella, and about 15 or baby stomatellas(at least thats what they look like to me). Is it possible that one of these guys are eating my coralline?

    Oh I have several asterina stars as well......
