    ok so in a visit to my LFS i was looking at some live rock and found these interesting spots and wasnt sure what they were. Was thinking that someone might be able to shed some light onto what these are...

    Bubble algae, tricky :pooh: to pluck off of LR with tweezers. Also, if you pop one, be prepared for multiple others showing up. When you pop them they release 100's of spores into the water column.

    Yep those are bubble algae. Emerald crabs will usually eat it. If you try to remove it by hand, be sure to not pop them in your tank.

    Bubble algae, but not that hard to deal with.
