    Got this beauty on live rock I bought from Submariner last weekend. It let go where is was and settled on top of this rock. The foot looks like a nennie's foot. It's about the size of a R2 coin.

    What you say? :p

    I don't want to kill it, it's cute and does look like a mini bubble tip. I kept a single aiptasia successfully for nearly a year without multiplying :p

    untill you go on holiday, water quality drops, nitrates spike and population explosion, not worth the risk, kill them as soon as possible
