We have these little projections growing on most of our live rock. Is this A problem? If so, what do we do about it?

Thanks!

OK, I can't post a picture for some reason. The things I'm talking about are hairlike projections, they are single, not in clumps. They're up to about 1 cm in length. They're thicker than a human hair, maybe as thick as a dog's whisker. I'll keep working on the photo issue.

A little more information

I'm sorry, I actually took the pictures first because I knew it would be much easier to identify them that way, but I'm still not able to upload, it keeps saying "file upload failed".


I reached in the tank and pushed on a few of them. They are brittle, and break off rather easily.


I tried adding the photo to my facebook profile, but it doesn't look like that worked either.

i believe they are Serpulidae worms. they are fine. they just trap organics in the water column to feed on.
