    Evening, hope someone can help. I noticed in my green carpet coral (do not really know the correct name) something that appears for a few seconds and then retreat. It almost look like a long thin feathery white claw.

    I know aptaisia but is it possible that this can be something similiar?
    (sorry I do not have a photo).

    I'm too new at this to be able to help you, but have you tried to search it on the Web...? If you find a image on the web and post it here, I'm sure the guys here would have no problem identifying it for you...

    sounds like some filter feeder worm. Normally great to have.

    Riaan, thanks for the response. At least I do not need to kill it.
