That black thing could have been some sort of sponge. If that's the case its nothing to worry about. They are good filter feeders. Hard to tell what it actually is in the photo though.

Thank you sir! I just felt like there would have not been enough swim space so I downsized and tried to make some little caves and crevices.

Thanks for the input Finn. I'm really trying to stick to LFS stock on this one especially after my last online order encounter....

LFS said they can do orders for fish and some coral depending on availability. This could be an option I forgot about that.
