    Hi Guys,

    Found this guy on a new piece of live rock I got this weekend, My tank has only been running for 2 weeks, he is the size of a 10c coin. I have not done any water tests as the system is so new. Should I try save him?

    Don't majano a have smooth columns? That one clearly has raised bumps.

    Where does the rock come from?

    Thanks for the prompt reply guys, my Dad was at a client who had a tank in the Pongola area and mentioned I was still setting up, the friendly reefer passed the rocks on. So if its a local specimen it would probably be somewhere from Northern Natal.
