    anyone have an idea? Is this how they reproduce? When my lights are dim/off is when it occurs...a worm-like white thread coming out of the star polyps.

    It is probably a spaghetti worm. Can you get a pic?

    Not if it is a spaghetti worm. Do a search on it and see if the pics you get look like what is in your tank.

    I have several "Spaghetti" worm like things all over my LR. It seems like each night I see a new area where they are coming from. Looks kind of cool to me. I'll look into the whole speghetti worm thing and see what they are all about but I presume they are just some type of filter-feeders getting their daily allowance ....
