    Hi,
    got four of these with the leather I bought.
    They 'walk' cause two of them climbed of the leather onto the rocks overnight.
    The other two I removed because they were sitting on the leather itself after two days and made the leather angry.
    What are they ? Good or bad ? seems they like light cause they move to spots where they receive good light and they'r not bothered by flow.

    hairy mushroom. They are quite mobile and will extend their trunk like that to catch light.

    Agreed, if they are motile and look like that, probably shrooms, never seen them look like that though :p
