    Hey there, I am very excited to announce that there is a new "creature" in my tank. I assume it came from the live sand I recieved to seed my dsb. I just wanna know what it is and if it ok.
    It has been on a piece of liverock for 5days and has not moved away. There was a bit of (what I think was hair aglae - though it is seethrough not green) and I have seen it extend its tublar "mouth" to eat it. It has feelers and eyes similar to a snail. The body - of what I an see is red and half moon shaped. It raises itself up and then looks a bit less flat. The other fish seem to ignoring it.
    Any one know what it might be?

    I managed to get the picture in my album. PLease everyone have a look. It isn't a bristle worm for sure.

    I doubt the image will show up from facebook, unless the entire forum membership is on your friends list. Try use our image uploader.
