    Dipped my corals today because something seemed to have nibbled on my clove polyp. This worm is what came out of the glove polyp: <a href="https://ibb.co/cG3Wck"><img src="https://thumb.ibb.co/cG3Wck/IMG_2731.jpg" alt="IMG_2731" border="0"></a>

    I noticed these tiny little creatures a couple weeks ago. There's about 3-4 of them that I can see on some of my live rock. I researched it and came to the conclusion it's some sort of anemone (not aiptasia) but I forget what kind I thought it was and now I can't seem to find the correct ID...

    I recently purchased the pictured nassarius, and noticed some beige fuzz on him. Originally thought it was just leftover fuzz from a previous home. After a week it is opening up and has little arms. It's the color of a mysis shrimp, but has many more legs/arms/tentacles than that. The arms...

    The following creature came in on my live rock. He hangs out in the small crevice during the day and has what looks like very small appendages or antennae that are moving back and forth rapidly, almost too fast to make them out individually.
