    Hi All,

    Can someone tell me what this is growing all over my coral.

    Small polyp like things with long root type things attached?

    Should I be worried?

    its a form of caulerpa probably racemosa
    can take over the tank if not careful
    pull it off gently as not to snap it as any bits left behind will just re-grow
