    So I have several small (1 cm or less) white tubes that have started growing out of my uppermost rocks. They appear to have teeny tiny crowns on top of them, but I haven't noticed them withdrawing into the tubes. I don't think they're bad; I just don't know what they are. I have a couple pictures, but the critters are hard to see since they're tiny and on rocks near the back of the tank.

    Look like pineapple sponges to me.

    But after looking at the pics of pineapple sponges, that's exactly what I'm seeing. Looks just like this:
