    Thanks crispin. yip felt it, its quite hard for its size. Had a feeling it is safe to keep because I saw four or five so far and they are never on the corals but always on the rocks. Must get him out of the sump now.:)

    Would you perhaps know what the other one could be, going with the description I gave? Looks like a pinhead but double the size of a pinhead and white and black stripes.

    yes put him back in his home :)

    to be honest fella, i have a vivid imm,agination and i can think of many things that your black and white puin head thing could be, but nothing id like to print on a fam channell....you'll have to be rather more accurate with your description for us to have a chance:)
