Merry Christmas! (tube worm pic )

Hi all, thought now would be a good time to post a pic of my new Christmas decorations. Can't take my eyes off this rock....makes me feel all festive.

Cindy, something I learned at some point. Christmas tree worms and Porties have a symbolic relationship in that christmas tree worms can only live in porties rocks.

Yeah, that's what I read as well and if the coral dies, so do the worms. But I have seen them as hitchhikers on liverock living without a coral though so figured I'd ask. Thanks.

Sorry, I'm not really able to answer that question...although it seems others already have.

Although this goes against the advice of the other guys it was what I assumed was happening. This is what the lfs guy told me it was anyway. Maybe thats not right?

It does look like your rock is incrusted with porites or it has a porites skeleton showing. It's hard to tell. If it is coral incrusted, be sure it gets plenty of light and is in a med flow area. Eventually you should begin to see tiny polyps. Either way it's a nice rock. Enjoy it.
