crappy pic but can anyone give me an idea what it might be?
 
i found this the other day growing on th back of my lr. it's hard to get a pic of because of it's location but it's the white thing near the top attached to the rock. http://www.fishforum.com/userpix/487...172707AA_1.jpg

I very fasinated to find out what that is I have never seen it.

My guess is that it is some type of sponge.

See caferacermike I wanted to say that because I bought a piece of live rock that had the same looking thing on it. I cant really see that clearly what it is but if I had to guess I would go with what you said.

Clathrina sp White Sponge....sometimes they come in with live rock/sand. Based on the location of its growth I'm 98% sure on the ID.

i looked up clathrina sp, and it does look like the pics for it. there is also a growth by it that is a bit like clathrina coriacea, unfortunalty the page i found with good pics was in russian i think so i couldnt read the info but i'll keep looking. thanks for the help! :)
