    hey guys

    Thought id pick your brains again.

    Any idea on what this is?

    1. sorry the rock is around the back of my tank and this is the best i could do. i will try get a top down shoot later.
    But its green about 2cm across. little polyps or something around the edges

    but id say thats probably majano, although from the pics any guess would be just that, a guess.

    but google majano and see if any one else has a clearer pic of what you see in the tank :)

    First pic looks like it could be a mushroom, or some kind of cabbage leather or something?

    I got a green cabbage leather, hold thumbs that yours is one as well. But third pic looks too tall. Unless its misleading and it is the rock that looks like a foot and stem.

    I know that Riaanp has a green one, so it's not impossible.

    Ok. Here are some some proper pictures for those of you who thought you were going blind.:whistling:

    IMG_1814.jpg
    The second one i googled majano and i do not think this is right.
    How about jewel anemone?
