I recently took a trip to the San Diego/Carlsbad, CA area to visit family and had the opportunity to explore local marine life. The eastern Pacific along the California coast is pretty cold (50-60F if memory serves) so I was curious as to what kind of critters I'd find. I managed to convince my...
I bought a big blue pom pom Xenia rock a few weeks ago. I moved the rock a couple days ago. I noticed it was not looking as good as when I put it in the tank. Tonight I was cleaning the tank, doing water change, and found this on the glass. I believe it is a Phyllodesmium rudmani. It looks just...

It can't swim and is carried by currents of the ocean. They have nematocysts and can sting like jellyfish. Although not really practical for the home aquarium because well it can't swim, stings, and ONLY floats on the surface partially exposed to the air. Not 100% sure it can sting a human...
I have a Derasa clam that has a few Aiptasia on the inside of his shell. Right where the mantle comes out. So I can not get to them while he is closed. They are keeping him from fully extending his mantle. Any thoughts, tips and help would be greatly appreciated.
