    Hi Guys

    So I was doing my water change tonight and I saw something on one of the bio balls in my back chamber. It looks almost like a tiny anemone (I know its not anemone).

    It moves its feelers around and when you take it out of water it pulls back into the wholes of the bio balls

    Can anyone tell me what this is

    Yes. Aptasia. Remove bio ball and kill it with boiling water.

    yeah. Kill it.

    And check around for others. These little bastards can hide anyplace. And they do not need light to survive. Had a few pure white ones in my dark sump.
