    Hi all.
    As i add new liverock to my systems, i get to see many small new creatures in my tanks. At first, i am quite excited about the strange things crawling around, untill i try and ID them.. Then i see how harmfull they can be in the tanks.

    Should we maybe start a thread dedicated to education on this subject?
    Yesterday, i found what must be a form of sea spider in my one tank, so far my research indicates they are bad in a reef setup.
    The other day, i found a blue Nudi, the weekend, a red nudi..

    Surely there must be some form of "keep an eye out for these critters" list?
    Maybe even algea or fish, snail, SPS sickly bahavior list too?

    Kinda like a list all the newbies can refer to, ideally with photos and samples?

    Here is a pic of a seaspider that looks like teh one in my tank:

    FDB, the chances of most of us having them are actually quite good (sea spiders I mean)

    Most of the time the will not cause harm, In fact what i've read about them is that some even have a type of symbiotic relationship with anemones, sucking the food needed from the nennie without really causing harm.

    Quite some info on other sites
