Something growing! #1
I have had my live rock in for 3 days now and there is two "things" growing on it, i say "thing" because i haven't got a clue what they are called although they do look familiar.

I have tried taking a picture of them but my camera doesn't seem to want to take good photo's of stuff inside my tank. The only way i can describe them is the stem is clear but not quite see through, when the lights go on and off the top opens up and out comes tenticle like things and it opens up like a flower, they aren't very big, one is about 2cm in length the other is probably about an inch maybe slightly more. If i could take a picture of it i would but like i said, my camera just doesn't like taking pics of things inside my tank!

Anyone know what it is by my description and are they ok?

my main guess would be aptasia anemones, vial pests, but google it and see if they are what you have

It doesn't really look like one of them, the "tenticles" are smaller and have a bit more of a formation to them, they don't sway about so much.

I really don't know what this is but am unable to get a picture of it to post on here a) because it is around the back of my rock and b) my camers doesn't seem to like taking pictures of things behind glass.

Looks like a Button Polyp (Zoanthus) to me.
