looks like a sponge or zoa. Do you have a clearer pic? Is it squishy? Does it have holes in it?

I haven't touched it or anything. It's pretty small, less than 1/2" across right now.

Here's more photos.

Thanks

Still looks like a paly. Use google images and search "palythoa" and see if that is definately it.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Awesome! My tanks only 2 weeks into cycle so I'm stoked to have something alive in there. How do I keep it that way, do I need to feed or anything?
