The coral you tentatively IDed as ricordeas is not a soft coral from what I can determine. The part stuck in the sand is not rock, it is hard "stem" so to speak. It was fragged while I was watching, but I do not think it is a candy cane. There were several polyps on the stalk and they sold me three.
I found the hermit where the star polyp was supposed to be again. It was on the sand in a cave. Could have blown there, but what a coincidence.

This coral has separate walls, each polyp has it's own. I will check all the common names the website listed, and see if any of them looks right. Bthanks. I love LA.

Looks like a lobophyllia hemprichii. Colors not exact, but there are always so many variations.

Could anybody ID the hermit? I realize the pic is not the best....
And what causes tiny bubbles on surfaces in the tank? A couple will float up every few seconds. I cleaned the tank Monday and vacuumed the sump, they've been there since then. What could have caused them and will they hurt my critters?
