    pic 1, the shrooms are green discosoma's, quite common, easy to tell, do they emit a smell when out the water, if so then discosoma's, else ricordea inchoata sp.

    the small center item is a majano or colonial anemone, can be a pest to some, keep an eye on him

    the second pic looks like a ricordea inchoata

    Its sitting on an odd spot so I would kill it , but they arent really bad, however they reproduce easily and quickly so can take over a tank

    they really close to my shrooms,so maybe i should just stab it and then put a piece of pratley putty over it. Any suggestions. Or should I take out the rock and then squirt boiling r/o on it. Also,any id on the last mushroom
