I am noticing these white lumpy growths on a few of my polyps. Not sure if I should be concerned or not so I have a picture here. Please let me know what you guys think

thank you

I know it is not the clearest picture....but no one has a guess? I hope to figure out whether this stuff is a threat or not so I can take some steps to isolate or treat this, or ignore it if nothing to worry about.

thanks

I would help you but id rather not guess because the treatment from one thing could kill the coral if it doesn't have the desiease (sp?) and id rather let someone more expirenced handle it don't worry be patient someone will get to it

OK, I could not get a better photo. But I did take the polyps out and put them in a bowl to investigate and turns out all the 'white growths' would just come off with little to no effort. I guess they were snail eggs or something. They just came off with a light brushing or use of tweezers.

Thanks.
