    Looks like a pineapple sponge to me. Harmless hitchhiker.

    Pineapple sponge? I killed him! :-(

    I had these all over my tubing in my old 40g reef so I don't want then everywhere again. But I'll leave them next time I guess!
    Thank you!

    They will multiply rapidly if you have excess nutrients in your system.
