i have these that popped up all inside my refugium. they arent pods because when i poked one, it didnt move so im wondering if it's egg sacks or something from the amphipods/etc i have in the refugium. any idea what they are for sure? just hoping theyre fine and leave them alone if they're eggs of something beneficial. thanks!

Pineapple sponges? Little hard to tell in the photos, but have a look at this: http://public.fotki.com/justbcaws/fish_4/dsc04626_sponge.html
Had a pile of them in my tank shortly after it went up. My Emerald Crab ate them like cotton candy!

very possible....i'll try to get a better pic of it to see. just wonder where they'd come from all the sudden. none to 100 or so. if not more.

thats just how they work. one day you dont see many/any, the next day there they are. happened that way in my tank too
