Three of them are hard to take pics of cuz the tank is bow front and there's too much distortion. But there are purple ones, green ones and even some "buttons" and polyps.

All the things I see on those rocks are anemones as far as I can tell. touch the questionable ones and if they retract into the crevices in the rock, they are anemones, and not palythoa.

I'll look into getting rid of them then. I don't need another pest in my tank. The reason I don't have fish pics is I just dealt with brookynella. I think the green one is a starfish. But I don't know. Those are pretty much the things that came with the live rock. I still have to get another 15 more lbs to finish off the tank so I'm looking forward to more weird critters.

I found out that the green thing was. It's a sea hare. Could be a potential problem if it dies.

Not if you run carbon on your system. Would clean it up quick.

Oh. Thanks good to know. He's very small though. Like an inch. They can grow almost a foot from what I've read up on them.

I don't think that was a sea hare.
