  1. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Hello, can I get an ID on this strange organism? It looks like a vermetid snail, except that the tube is clear without pigmentation, and very soft to the touch, they seem to sway in the current. These things have multiplied like crazy in the dark zones of my tank. It's not over the new rock, but...

    I have small brown/tan tubes, minus any feather duster, appearing all over my tank and even on snail shells, etc. Any ideas? I'll try and get a pic later.

    Cant find any hitch hiker ID guides with anything likes these. Started growing on LR over a month ago. Big ones are close to 1.5" now. There's a little algae growing on ends (in case you notice discoloration in pics). There are about 10 or so of them. Most on one rock but a few on others...

    Can anyone help me ID this black sponge. It's not encrusting. It actually branches out in long tubes. It's In low light areas of the tank with moderate flow. Are these good guys or bad guys? My apologies for the bad picture. My phone tends to leave aquarium pictures blue. Thank you!

    Hi, i've recently noticed some white fuzzy tube things with a fuzzy tipped head, they were growing out of my live rock and mainly on the underside or in holes. I left them for about a week and now there are roughly 60 of them. Can someone please identify them for me and can you tell me if they...

    So the tank has been up for three weeks. And life has started to emerge. After reading all the posts on hitchhikers, and not seeing anything until today. I was starting to think that I had created a life killing glass cage of death. But now I believe I have life in the tank. But I am unsure what...

    My tank is fairly new and in the last week or so I've had an explosion of these clear or white slightly curved tubes growing on my live rock, mostly on underside of the rock and mostly on one particular rock. I've searched around for a good while now and can't find an exact match on...
  12. The THINK Tank
    I'm pretty far into the aquarium business and I still don't know what these little tube looking things on my live rock are. I looked in ther at night, and ther was one tube that was actually kinda "squirming" at the end. It looked like it had a bright green tip on it, but then dissapeared. It...

    We recently bought an up and running 125g saltwater reef tank. We have been able to identify everything except these light pinkish, purple tubes growing on one of our live rocks. Can anyone please tell me what it is?

    I'm trying to figure out a setup for when I get new tubes. I am currently running the tubes that I received with the light (I bought the light 2nd hand, but hardly used). I have limited SPS, 2 clams (one bottom and one is barely peaking from behind the toadstool leather in the photo), some...

    I was just looking into my tank and I just happened to spot a tiny tube (1mm diameter and 2 cm long) pop out of the rock and release what appeared to be eggs? i would say it was a steady stream of them probably 10 inches long or so. they broke apart as soon as they were hit with the higher...

    I wanted a couple of Peppermint shrimp, so I dropped by CBA on my way home. Sure enough, I saw a cool tube anemone and when when I saw Pam's tube anemone last week, I had to have one. Here are couple of pics: With flash: and with Actinics Only:

    I think I've decided that I want to get an All Glass 75 gallon tank with the Megaflow overflow setup. Anyplace in town better than others price wise for tanks? I'm pretty sure that the last time I was at Something Fishy they had the tank I want, but I would assume all the shops in town would...
