What the H are these? I found them on the strainer of my return pump last night. I also found two more in the bottom of my bubble trap in my sump.

They have the consistency and of cooked beans. The insides are gooy. You can see to the right of the bottom one is some of the goo. You can also see some of the goo coming out of the top one. You have to pop them to get the goo out.

Sorry I did not give this info before.

If this is a peanut worm in this pic

Then I am going to guess no. But thank you KB, it did sound possible when I read your post. They are shaped like peanuts.

Kris I am kinda thinking an egg sack myself but still not sure.

I get cockroach egg sacks in my water top off reservor. +1 eggs, but maybe not reef inhabitant eggs. Do you have spiders living in your stand?

You're welcome. It was the only thing I could think of.

You could try sending the picture to WetWebMedia. They might know.

No spiders that I can see. No webs or anything. I am pretty shure they either originated in or entered via the sump so I am not ruling out something non SW related.

Next time throw a coin in the pic for size reference.
Those look like garbonzo beans.

What you can't tell their size by counting the threads from the hand towel? :D It was late and I was tiered and on my way to bed when I found them so I wasn't really thinking lol.

Since the only beans that every come into this house are refried from a can I think I can rule out being any kind of bean.

They are the size and shape and texture of beans though.

Do you have kids? I wouldn't put anything past kids to throw something in the tank screwing around. You shouldn't have made them eat the beans for dinner!! Here you thought they just had to use the restroom during dinner. :)
