    White fuzz on bubble tip coral

    anyone know what this may be? My mother in law has this on the body of her bubble tip. Its the only coral in the tank with it and its been in the tank for 8+ months also the coral is full of life and not dying.

    It grows into spikes that come out in 45 degree angles. They have firmness to them but still easier to break off and pull away than something like grass. And on the outside of the firm part, is the white fuzz that by any other feel, I would call mold. Not having seen this before and yet only growing on a coral that's been around since the first days of the tank being established and nowhere else in the tank... I felt I should ask.
