    Is this Astplasia?
    It's so small, I don't think I can use the astplasiax on it. I'm afraid of hurting the zoas. Should I wait until it gets bigger? Is that what it is? There are two on that little frag.

    Majano in the second pic. Its the same as aptiasia!
    Kill it quick. And you will not hurt your zoas. And get rid of it before it releases more spores!!

    What about the first thing? I thought it was a sponge, but it's got gold stuff inside it. I keep finding all this weird stuff in my tank!

    I think I know why the wholesaler won't let the LFS guy inside to look at the frags when he goes to buy them. Their tanks are probably covered with Aistiplacia and Manjo!

    Second one, can be a small aiptasia. The zoa obviously do not like his new neighbour.
