    So this little guy came on my live rock but it seems like it's probably a little too far gone to be saved. Should I just take it out or let it stay and see if I can save it?

    Today I bought a small rock with a few mushroom polyps on it from my LFS. Upon getting home and inspecting the rock for hitchhikers, I found this guy. He's acutally pretty big, his body is about an inch long. He has striped legs, and looks somewhat similar to my emerald crab, except this one...

    I have been doing some aiptasia and hydroid demolition today and found some new boogers that are interesting and I was going to see if anyone knows what they are. It's amazing that after 2 years, there are still new things popping up out of nowhere. The first pic shows a colony-like group of...

    Hello everyone! Okay so here's whats happening: I have a brittle star fish that hitchhiked on one of my rocks. Long story short its standing up, next to another one half its size. I read this could be spawning behavior and I just wanted anyone's opinion. Here's a picture (sorry for poor...

    Found some things. I think I have tunicates and weird white encrusting things. Also two different red sps, about the size of a #2 pencil eraser. Birds nest?? Found a anenome looking guy. I think it's agressive. What is it? Im listing picks in order but some pics have two hitch hikers in them.

    ok, I hope the picture shows up ok. I got this blue mushroom about a week ago and I noticed it starting to lift. So I started looking at it closely to make sure nothing was wrong with it. The mushroom is only about 3/4 of an inch and there are these little what maybe look like aipatasias and...
  19. Anemones
    Please help identify this anemone for me. It came with live rock, and it split already 2 times, so I have 3 of them now. They are fairly small, mouth disk is about 1/4 inch in diameter. They have bright green tentacle tips and the disk is kinda brownish. I am pretty sure its a nem because one of...

    I got this coral as a hitchhiker on one of the rocks I got from my LFS. It started about 9 months ago as a barely visible 1/8 inch patch on the rock and now it has grown to about 1.5-2 inches. It seems to be spreading flatly over the rock and not making any branches or anything. Clearly it looks...
