    I thought possibly bryopsis as well but I've been observing it for about a month now. It has only spread a tiny bit and it never turns green.

    Is there such thing as white bryopsis? I googled it but turned up no relevant results. I seen there are a couple others like brown and yellow but nothing on white. Thanks for your response anyways I figured best practice was to just remove the 2 rocks I seen it on altogether to avoid an infestation or at least prolong it as long as possible. Thanks again and appreciate your input.

    Get rid of it as fast as possible, it will choke out corals especially zoos palys it wraps around them and kills them off, it will start running and running and fast, I got rid of it when doing my hydrogen peroxide tank dosing
