Hey possum, I edited your post to show the pic "inline" the sized pic is a link to the full sized pic, for those on broadband, or dialuppers willing to wait a few minutes

I waited, if I hadn't looked at the full size image, I would have had no idea what it was. It looks like a species of non-photosynthetic mushroom commonly found on Florida Aquacultured LR. Pseudocorynactis cribbeorum
Here is a pic of one of mine...

RR - awesome pic. I agree on the ID! Good call - I had looked at it, and didn't have a clue - didn't realize the pic was a link to a higher rez. Txs!

Well, if you put the scientific name in google, it comes back with one hit, to a post on this site, LOL. I have no links on it, maybe Teri has something

Hehehe...

There isn't much info. out there on these. I do know that they are not photosynthetic, and will eat meaty foods - don't typically spread to pest proportions.

Here's one that looks a liitle more like yours:



From here: >>Reefimages.com<<

There is a little info. on them in this article, but IMO, it makes them out to be a bit more 'predatory' than they really are:

HTH,
