Um, I think you're going to have to save that file to your pc then upload it to imageshack/reefclips/photobucket Rod. Or you can mail it to me...

Eina, looks like flat worms to me, destroy via a six-line wrasse or there are a few other wrasses which eat this critter but not sure which.

No Midas I dont think so. This is a big boy! I have had my invasion of planeria/flatworms so I will say no.
Compare with the mushroom near him.

Hi Rod - does this thing move at all? If not, It can be some type of sponge or turnicate. I have similar things growing in my tank, but they are DEFINITELY not mobile, and I could not see anything negative effect of having them in my tank. They do like the "darker" areas of my tank though.....
