Interesting...

That rock looks pretty good minus the aptasia, what kind of rock is it?

I was wondering where this Aiptasia could come from. This is the fisrt one I have seen in a year in this tank and the colour is what is pusling me. It is bright yellow like the sun coral.

Alfie, coincidentally I zapped on with a kalk/RO mix this morning. Also yellow but not as bright as this one. It dissappeared completely.

I'd say get rid of it now.

Hope you see this in time........
Guys, please don't condemn something until it is positively identified as a unwanted species. (But then again all the jails are full of innocent people......)

Before you nuke it, bring it to me please. I will grow it into something we can identify. If it is aiptasia, I will feed it to my ever begging copperband and you get the rock back. If not an aiptasia, you can have it back.
