Thanks, I am really happy. Will the colors spread over the rest of the rock in time? Is that whats called coarline algea? I am also getting alot of flaking of white stuff. Is that Just normal Die off?

Saw a long spaghetti worm tonight! and more of my feather dusters are coming out. there was also something with legs that crawled in the rock. Didn't quite catch what it was. and something puffed sand out of a "cave" at the base of the big rock.

Man I love this rock!

brittle stars aren't bad...bristle worms aren't bad either but they can quickly multiply to annoying numbers. white specs are just little die off patches. if your water quality is good, the die off will stop quickly.

the colorful purpel stuff is indeed coralline algae and any base rock touching your live rock will gradually get populated. Its something you'll notice week to week, not a daily basis.
