At first I thought it was cool. Now I'm not so sure :( why? Because it has 6 arms.

And what is this white string stuff? It pulls off real easy, but just grows back and only on this little piece of LR.

looks like a mini brittle star. If it is there is nothing to worry about.

+1 brittle star = fine

The white stuff is likely a sponge.

Not tube worms nor fd's. If it wasn't on the little rock with my wee bitty birds nest I'd let it grow just to see what it does. I think it may be plant related as it grows back within a couple of weeks after removal. No spreading yet pray pray pray...I'll try an get a closer shot of it. Maybe somebody knows. Hey! I'll ask Mikey-he knows everything. LMAO.

Is it possible the second pic is more mini brittles? They like to get themselves into rock, and wave their arms into the water colomn to collect food. A possibility perhaps?

You know the saying, where there is 1 there is 100's! True saying too, regarding mini brittles most of the time!

the first looks like a little brittle start, should be fine. The second pic reminds me of something similar i had a few years ago, its like a spiders web. if its only on the little rock personally id remove that rock. its a bit of a nuisance, hermits might eat it.
