    usually bristle worms, but you also get fireworms which cause grief in ones system. they can also sting you. You can come across flat worms and sometimes even small crabs which i had in my rock.

    There are allot of things you will find.
    I have found crabs, snails, pulsing Xenia, brittle stars etc on my LR.

    It is a good sign of good quality LR if you find lots of life on them.

    There are so many things its hard to say, I was speaking to a guy that got a fish as a hitchhiker once. I like this site for IDs on critters.
