    I cannot maintain both in my tank, as they are sponse eaters. Anybody will blue encrusting sponse problems, that want one, or can give me a piece of blue sponse.

    What is the scientific name of black sponge

    From the link
    "different species of the Demospongia, including Tethya spp., Aaptos aaptos, Ancorina alata, and Plakina trilopha"

    Do you have black sponge, you can try him. If he does eat it, then we found another solution.
