that's what i was talking about...branching euphyllia. frogspawn, torch, hammer. the wall ones seem to take a bit longer. i guess it's due to them having to make a lot more skeleton.

Will a clownfish host a Neon Green Hammer

I know this is not a very good picture but my phone camera is not the best and the one that should be took even worse picture.
I saw this thing sticking out of the side of my Frogspawn and it seems to be getting longer is it something for me to be worried about and if so how do I get rid of it?

you mean that thing at the bottom of the head, attached to the skeleton? do you ever see web-like strings coming out of it?

this is probably a vermetid gastropod. It is a harmless, sessile snail that captures detritus and plankton with a mucus trap. they form calcareous tubes that project them out into the water column.

i've never seen one of those kill a coral. i've never heard of it either. maybe it was another creature you were thinking of.
