the second vid is hard to see. They're too small to zoom in on clearly. You can see if you look close that there are 15-20 small reddish brown things. They look like of like polyps, but they have an individual 'stem' on each one going down in to the rock.

I would guess colonial hydroids from your description. Aptasia won't sprout up that fast.

You might be right. I noticed that once the lights were off, and I took a flashlight to them, the 'polyps' were gone and there was just a tube looking thing sticking up. Sound like them?

I take it they're not a good thing, from the google searches I've done. Any tips on removal?

Take a look at "The worms crawl in" to help identify some of the creepy crawlers you will discover in the tank.

As for the type of Clown fish, that is strictly your choice.
The Black Ice is a new designer (engineered) fish not found in nature. ORA was expecting one thing and got this instead.

Yes, some Clownfish are known for being very territorial. I have a pair of A. percula who are rather peaceful denizens in my tank. I don't really have any bullies though there is the occasional squabble that last a few seconds.

The first vid is in fact a spionid worm-not a problem.
You could let the supposed colonial hydroids grow a bit to see if that's exactly what they are, and then you can kill them off with kalk paste or similar.

Cool. I've got several of them, good to know they're not a pest. As for the mystery thing, I'll take your advice and let them grow. I suppose there's a chance it could be something really cool and non-problematic.


Wife doesn't like the pink skunks after all. She said they don't look enough like nemo. Sigh...

I always liked black and white ocellaris clowns.
