Can't really tell from the photos. Monti's can suffer from nudibranch infestations, small White bugs that generally live underneath around the base.

Hi danny

As Chriss said not the best of photo's, if it's what looks like a white tube on the left of the Monti is possibly one of these - Polydora Villosa - burrowing worn, I've got one on a monti, doesn't seem to be having any ill effects.



I found this link, have a read http://www.sinica.ed.../39.1/47-54.pdf
