    What's this brownish thing? It's on this frag plug and seems to be getting bigger. Saw one on a rock also.

    This emerald green crab has algae and sponges growing on his legs. Is that a problem? Why doesn't he pick it off?

    Has anyone had any luck getting these white polyps to transfer to another sponge or rock? The red sponge under it isn't doing well.

    yes

    i think its a type of sessile mollusc, but might be wrong

    those are fan worms

    cant tell from pic

    yes they are.

    what fuzzy stuff?

    are you sure thats an emerald crab? If it was a problem, the crab would remove it itself.

    those polyps are symbionts to the sponge (Ptilocaulis sp.) so will not transfer to the rocks. Hope you feeding them casue they not photosynthetic.

    Crud, on the crab. The LFS said it was the emerald green. If it's a gorrilla, is it a problem?
    He's all smooth and green underneath the algae and sponge growing on him.
    Are the molusks a problem?
