New baby creatures

Post by seaponygirl on Wed May 23, 2012 8:51 am

I'm so excited. Just this week I have found 3 new teeny tubeworms in different places. My grey and white tubeworm "died", but came back a week later. The brown and white one is doing the same. Anyway I love tubeworms. The most exciting was a tiny starfish climbing the glass. It looked to be brown peaks on the back. Haven't seen it since, just hidden somewhere. I never bought it, must have come in on a coral rock. When I had put that zoa encrusted rock in my tank I had seen a hair fine red starfish shape drop off. Also a bubble white growth in the underside of an arch. Probably a sponge. New surprises every day!

And it never ends! I've had tanks 7+ years and every now and then do a "what the hell is that!". lol!

Another baby starfish last night. This one was the size of split pea, also a few more tube worms. So much fun. Love it.

Hey, I think someone is sneaking into my house and dropping stuff in my tank. Yesterday I found a very small anenome! It has the long thin tentacles, they vary from white to clear/tan. I rotated his rock to face the front by this morning he'd moved back to the side. I hope he'll eventually be a home for my clownfish. Crazy eh?

Do you know for sure it's not aptasia? If it is and you don't know how to zap it, I'll come over some time and show you how.

Here's an article about them. http://www.nano-reef.com/articles/?article=16

Thanks for the article on aptasia. The pictures do not look like the anemone I found, they look exactly like it. It is on a small rock. It has a small "Kenya tree" on it. Could I just move the tree, pour boiling water on it, and let it dry out? It's kind of a pretty rock, so I could just sacrifice it. Darn, I was kind of hoping for an anemone.
