    I noticed these round green things a couple of weeks ago only in this one spot up high in the tank. Are they eggs of some sort or a green algae? I have seen a little bit of green round algae that looks like glass (bubble..just put in two emerald crabs) but this is dull and more round. Any ideas?
    Water tests perfect.

    I can't seem to get a better picture but there is more of them now and they are attached by a small stem. If I poke them, they are soft. I have a lot of zoa's and so I know that is not what they are. Any other ideas?

    I think it's algae. I'd pull it out if I were you.

    From the pic, are they above the zoa colony than? Almost looks like an infection in that part of the colony..?

    yep above the zoe's. I found out it was grape algae. Can overtake a tank. I pulled it out after letting it grow for a couple of weeks.
