Basically can't see it properly as I have to look through a hole in another rock to see it. I suppose I'll have to lift the rock up to get a better pic if it can't be made out.

Yes and that's what I thought.....I don't think it will do any harm.....I just wish it would grow upwards instead!

I may have to do what I've seen elsewhere......make the rock seem to float in the tank and then it can grow downwards  :smiley:

Well the puzzle is over......as you said @Carol it is a calcerous algae, it's Branching Coralline. Apparently it requires good water so WTF it's doing in my tank I don't know!
