View Full Version : Sponge or what?

So watching my tank as I usually do after work. When i saw something curious go under an empty shell I reached in with a claw to lift shell and see what it was. Instead I found the shell stuck to the sand?!?! I had to reach in and get it with my hand and pulled out this.

I appears to be sponge like material about 4 inches in diameter engulfing sand, shells, or whatever was in its way. Only a tiny bit of it was above the sand. It feels squishy to the touch. Is it a sponge? Is it harmfull. Should I move it to a rock? Or take it out. I'm in visioning it turning my whole sand bed into a squishy mass.

Holy moley! That's crazy looking! Perhaps the alien invasion bent on eradicating human life started in your tank...
Last time I checked my watch this was America!

No one knows what this is?

I don't know, but I personally would remove it. I would scrape the coraline off the shells back into the tank though. It I didn't buy it or can't figure out what it is, I don't really want it in there.
