I seem to have what looks like "cobwebs" in my salt tank. it is 100 gal. have several fish, snails, and crabs. the "cobwebs" look like they are coming from the snails. any ideas?

they could be spawning but when my solitary snail spawned it simpling squirted out stuff into the outflow of the skimmer. however when some of these small tube worms get agrivated on a certain rock they make this cobweb thread thing.

have found out from Drs Foster and Smith that there is a rare worm in our live rock that when it is maturing, it secrets this "cobweb" like string. it will happen again when it grows more. thought someone would like to know, but they said that they have heard of it in a couple of hundred tanks worldwide.
