Re: can anyone help me #2
Welcome to FK Poppy, your mystery creature is a Ricordea mushroom. Can't really tell from the photo which type but if you look at the mouth part in the centre, if it is smooth its Ricordea Florida but if it has little knobbly bit on it then its Ricordea Yuma. HTH

They can sting other corals that are placed too close but generally very safe unless you have very small perching fish that would sit on them for long periods and become enclosed by them.
