    Sigh, after staring at more live rock I've found a really cool looking noo-noo .... It kinda looks like a worm, is about a millimeter in thickness, is cream coloured with brown stripes, but has a mouth like an anemone. It has embedded itself in a piece of coral worm rock and can extend itself out about 10mm, it seems to peck on one of the nearby coral worm's feathers - stealing food off it I think ..... It is wierd when contracting, it's like a straw that folds in on itself, if that makes sense ... Good or bad ?

    Does anyone else admit to staring at rocks ? :biggrin:
