Is this Bryopsis?
At first glance it looks like it is. But... it's really fluffy and the mid section is very thin. I installed an Inovative Marine Magnafuge a couple weeks ago and planned on getting some Chaeto to throw in the back chamber. Really not sure what to do with this stuff
Let it grow back there as long as it doesn't plague the display?
Put chaeto back there and let's see who wins?

I think it is as well, and I'm no expert, but I'd get rid of it. My concerns would be that it will spread to the tank and it would grow in with the chaeto.

Updated growth. Still think its Bryopsis? Its still really fluffy and grows long branches (up to 4" long so far at least) that dont appear to pop when removed. It also grows from tight clustered bases
