    Hi

    So whe i bought my first piece of LR it came with a hitchhiker nennie, which I named big red. I took down my 1.2m tank about two weeks ago and decided to keep him going in a small daro tank I have. Here are some updated pics. Hes about the size of R5 coin when open

    And now amazingly I found another one on the same rock. Still small about the size of 1c coin. Has burgundy centre with a green edge. Due to the size and its in the middle of the tank this is the best photo of him I can get. Any ideas as to what they are?

    You might want to go thru this Site and try and pin-point the "Family" or "Class" as this one almost has the same "edging" on the Tentacles...I'm sure if you find either "Family,Class or Genus" you will find you'r one on the Net...sorry I can't find it now as I've made other plans for this morning...will look for you this afternoon if you still didn't get a positive ID...:blush:

    Thanks @bilindamotion . Could be that. The tenticle have only one bump. Ill keep feeding it and the big red so it might be easier to identify when its a bit bigger
