    My "educated" guess... on the left looks like "clove coral" of some sort, on the right looks like a "hairy mushroom."

    No chance of that coming back again. I had a good couple on some LR I got in the beginning. Non left now. That was the first one I have seen in months and I am thinking it came with a few pieces of LR I got the other day. I use Cape Coral Care "Terminator" and it really works. Have never had any side effects and I have killed them right at the base of a leather already.
