Loaded with life. Lfs gets rocks and cures them meaning they set the rocks in separate tanks to allow die off stuff that usually won't live in our tanks or unwanted pests. For we don't have ammonia spikes.

The orange thing I'm thinking some type of encrusting sponge, not sure about 2 nd pic, 3rd pic: google pseudocorynactis and see if that's what yours looks like.

Yes a pseudocorynactis is what they look like.... Does that mean these are little anemones?

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
The orange blob appears to be a tunicate. the corynactis is safe and will probably disappear as your tank settles in. Yes, it's a relative of anemones.
