Loaded piece of rock you have.A lot of Sun(Tubastraea) corals.Make sure you place the rock so they stay in a low light area.

I believe it's a reverse gorilla nipple zoanthid and he likes being at the top of the aquarium.

I heard a loud noise coming from my tank Sunday morning. I went over to investigate and saw that the tank needed some top off water so I began to put some water in the return area and water started pouring out of my GFO canister onto a power strip that was sitting underneath the canister. I immediately turned off the power and began unplugging everything including the power strip itself. Needless to say the power strip is a goner.

Lesson learned, never put a power strip under anything containing water.

Lucky. If I had a nickle though. I've knocked mine off walls and accidentally dumped water on them countless times.

The combination of saltwater and electricity is very lethal. Be careful.

Thanks Greg. I am normally very careful but didn't expect that to happen. I will definitely be even more careful in the future.

I am sometime astounded at how stupid I am standing in saltwater fiddling with wires. I have to stop and remind myself what I'm doing and how quickly it could kill me. I try to have everything on GFI, but I may have overlooked a circuit.

It's easy to forget when you are in the moment of fiddling with something. I have not yet put GFI's on my tank outlets. That is on my list of things to do though.

With the conductivity of saltwater, I think GFI is a must. I've had too many power heads go bad and gotten badly shocked when placing my hand in the sump.
