This isn't what I think it is... is it?

Not the best pictures as it is extremely small. To me, it seems more like a featherduster ring, as Its more of a solid spiral then egg looking sacks strung together. I wasn't aware of those white dusters attaching to corals.

None of my zoas are showing an ill signs, the all extend quite far, actually very far. Is that a symptom?

I was pretty posative, but I just wanted to make sure. Of all the pictures of nudi eggs I have seen, they don't look anything like them. But I saw white spiral and was a bit worried.

Looks like a little tube worm or the casing of one to me. they can attach to polyps as well as palys can use them like any other particle. I have a few of them just like that here and there
