    Thoughts on what this is? I know the picture makes it look like a chicken bone, but it's not. It's got to be some sort of sponge or maybe some sort of algae or seaweed. Fyi, the green stand running through it is from my cheato.

    I have a really cool plant that grew out of my live rock that I have had for 6 months or so. I noticed the plant trying to grow several times before but it would give up.

    I'm looking for a plant that has a grass-like appearance; or at the very least grows somewhat thickly together and waves nicely when you put a current through it.
