    Hi Everone,

    Anyone know what this is and suggestions on how to remove it? At night it folds up and i can't really scrape it off the rock.

    John at reef cleaners thinks they are daisy polyps. Clavularia

    Can you post a larger or or more close up pic? It's possible for it to be a type of daisy polyp as I have a brown version but my first guess would be bryopsis. Is it feather-y looking?

    Not bryopsis! They are a type of clove polyp similar to the Japanese blue cloves but brown. obviously.. Smile

    How knows maybe they will turn blue.. I have the blue and it looks awesome covering the rocks. Unless you totally hate it, I'd leave it be.

    BTW what kind of lighting do you run?

    I don't hate it, but it is spreading a little too fast for my taste. I'll probably try some kalk paste on the areas i'm not happy with.

    I'm using Aqua Illuminations LEDs.
