Hey all!

Life has been extremely busy, but now with the holidays behind us, it has started to return to normal and slow down a bit.

My wife has been asking me for quite some time to find out what something is that has been growing in the tank and seems to be spreading. I figure there is no better time than now to find out what they are before they take over the tank.

Here are some pics. The unidentified growing objects (UGO's) are in the center and top left of the first photo and the center of the close up.





An ID with a plan of action to rid them from the tank would be greatly appreciated!

Yep! Colonial Hydroids. I've had some success in the past using a turkey baster and boiling RO/DI.

It could require a few treatments to get them all. Just be careful with your nearby corals.
