  1. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    Just got a bubble coral and this is on the skeleton. Seller said he never noticed it until he took the coral put of the tank and the polyps receded. Pictures from all three sides. The spikes are hard and seems to be stationary. Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk

    I was wondering if anybody could Id this it just kind of slowly showed up. I know it wasn't there before. The other Coral in the picture is on a 1 inch plug just so you get an idea how big this thing is. Thanks for any help.

    I thought this was little bits of my dragon's breath algae spreading throughout the tank at first but its getting pretty widespread. They don't seem to move, and are concentrated on one large rock on one end of the tank. I actually haven't even tried to touch or remove one yet because I'm just...

    So I was looking in my tank, and I came across this creepy guy sneaking out of a rock. Is this anything to concern myself with? I obviously didn't put him in there, so I'm guessing it's something normal that's harmless? I'm referring to this spiny worm type creature. Sorry I don't know what it...

    I am going to be ordering rock for a new tank and would like some opinions/experiences on the pros and cons of using natural live rock or the new artificial "life rock".

    Do I need to use a substrate? Is a Versa Lid required over the tank to protect the lights? And is 39 watts of LED regardless of what the manufacturer says it can grow? The tank has been stable for almost 2 weeks - when can I consider adding anything to it? I am using RO saltwater purchased...

    I have a hitchhiker white crab that came in on my sea lettuce. He has gotten very large and have noticed that he is feasting on my blue legged and red legged hermit crabs. Can anyone tell me what he may be? I cannot get pictures because he hides whenever I walk by with the camera. Thoughts?

    I'm putting this out there if there is interest. I have an older style Biocube complete with livestock: white striped maroon clownfish (desperately wanting an anemone), lawnmower blenny, coral beauty, hermit crabs, an unknown crab (he was a hitchhiker), and possibly a tiger pistol shrimp and...
  9. Site Feedback and Questions
    I want to preface this by saying that I truly do enjoy this site. MR is my home base; the first place I come to seek answers, interact with other reefers, and the information on this site is what I follow above all other info out there. There's just this one thing... The General "Reef...
  10. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    Can anyone id this? I purchased some coral from a local reefer a couple weeks ago. Since then I've had a lot of this popping up in my tank. Looks like aptasia but has a bright green center. Anyone know what it is? If it's bad how can I get rid of them?
  11. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    Hi! Just set up our tank a week ago with a mixture of reef rock and standard live rock from LFS. This little guy is growing out of one of the reef rocks and thus far the ID on it has stumped those who we've shown. Most agree it is an Anemone but do not know what kind. It is steadily growing...

    Hitchhiker on more than one level. some kind of polyp that is attached to the shell of one of my snails.
  13. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"

    I just got my first coral yesterday and wanted it to stay alive and wanted to keep any known predators away from it. So I searched all the things that might kill or irritate it and noticed something similar that was on my zoanthids, its called a hydroid. I took a picture and was wondering if any...
  17. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    this little guy came with my Decorator Crab. when i bought him i didn't notice it as it was closed up (looked like a little lump on his back). it has now detached itself from the crab and is crawling all over the tank. is this a good anenome? bad? i havent noticed him doing any damage yet. i...
  18. Want to Buy
    I used to have some of these guys but they have all disappeared. I think they are normally considered a hitchhiker and I do not see them for sale anywhere. If you have some I would like to trade a frag or pay for them. Or if you want spaghetti worms I have a ton of those, too! Thanks!
  19. Reef Discussion
    Has anyone ever seen a "baby"? I swear I just saw one scurry out (and then right back in) of the zoa frag I just bought, but it was SO small. How small do they start out? Does anyone know?? If it abandons ship when I do the dip I'll take a pic. If it doesn't... well, I'm not sure what to do...
  20. Reef Discussion
    I spent most of the summer watching my 16g mixed reef go through a slow crash. Unstable ph, alk, and temps wrecked havoc on all of my corals. I couldn't get the number stable till it was too late. Also had a predatory mollusk eating flat work to battle and of course every tank needs a stone...
