    Look what I've got



    What that is? It is everywhere, but especially it likes gorgonians. I clean poor animals at morning and evening and still they hardly find time to open polyps. All sand bed is also covered with that stuff. These hair grows 5 inch per day at some places.

    Seems like I cant get rid of that.
    I also have picture of sand bed if that will help.

    N= 7 (usually is 0)
    P= 0.00
    Silicates =0
    Cal =440
    Alk = 8.2

    What lights do you have?

    If there T5HO a bulb is old run

    460nm and 420nm only

    trust me battled them for about 9 months

    I removed an old 10k and 12k and replaced them with 460nm and 420nm and they were gone in 3-4 days

    Yes , I run LEDs.
    There are 4 pieces of 420ers running at 1w. Others are nw,cw and rb,. Blue, green and red are few supplemental only like violets.

    You suggesting me to run tank few days only in blue spectrum ? Did I understood it right ?

    S.M. , I dont thing its worm. Unless there are thousands of them, but then I would see at least few. This stuff is multiplying at terrible speed and after it reach some mass it slows down. Every time I clean gorgs, they are covered under this spider nest in few hours. Not only hairs , but also gorg body all is enclosed in brown skin.

    There how bottom looks -
