    Every time i clean my tank of do anything with it these "coebs" seem to sprout out of no where? they are not attractive, and they are just being a pain in my a**. Please if you know what they are, tell me and i'm going to continue to make a lot of water changes even though it doesn't seem to be helping... (and yes, my parameters are all good)
    thanks,
    Sarah

    I believe that they are from coral and other inverts like anemones. They release stringy stuff that is very sticky when they grow or are trying to clean themselves. It also could be coral or invert waste.

    this happens a lot if you have leathers in the tank. if it is indeed the leathers doing it, try putting some more flow over them and that should clear it up.
