I have been setting up a reef tank (105 lrs) for the past month or so. I have just introduced two cleaner shrimps, 5 hermit crabs and 5 turbo snails. As an addition to the tank I was given a coral as a gift but I aint got a clue as to what it is. Could someone please identify it for me?
Hi igs942, Ive got the pom pom variety of euphylia, which looks very much like yours only more rounded. It's a beautiful coral and mine enjoys a bit brine shrimp every now and again, they're unusual when feeding because they tie themselves in knots around the food. I also feed the tank marine snow and phytoplankton for the corals so it might be worth introducing some to your tank for your new addition to thrive on. Good luck with your tank, keep the pics coming
Thanks Karen. I'll have to get some for it. I now seem to have some sort of worm-like thing in my tank. It looks like it's living in the live rock, in a tube that looks like it's made of rock. It's a really weird looking thing with a funny head with either spikes,horns or tentacles on it and if I look carefully I can see that it seems to suck in some sort of slime to feed?? Like I said rather strange. Here's a shot of it. Could anyone ID this? Thanks a lot.
hi there... i know what your on about... ive got several of them in my tank.... i forgot what they are called but i know they aint no threat to the tank, all they do is basical net/fish for suspended matter to feed on....
