Hello everyone. I got a.chuck of Florida live.rock with a nice carribian rose brain (I think?). And after 6 months or so I noticed what I thought was a dead skeleton of some kind d of coral was growing back in. Now that it's bouncing back it seems to.be having a chemical battle with the brain. Any ideas what it is and what I should do? Also there is a weird green tube like plant growing on the rock as well anyone know what that is also? thanks!

This link might help.

I'm not really sure about the macro algae though. You might have to let it grow a little more before we can ID it.

Thanks for the link! The coral looks like the Lesser Starlet Coral. I will do some research on it
