    I decided to break a couple of my bigger pieces of live rock into smaller ones today. When I cracked open the one,I saw this brown,green fluid in the rock. It was almost like a slime one the rock. I dont know if its inside the smaller pieces also. anyone knows what it is?

    Could be some kind of bacteria/cyanobacteria that were living anaerobically in the rock, but lots of life forms are found in and on live rock - hence "live" rock ;)
