Found Something 'neat' on my LR

I thought I saw something and did a double take and it was gone. Then I watched carefully and it slowly opened, moved my hand and in it went.
These are the best I could get, don't have a closeup function on my camera, put my index finger in the 2nd pic for reference.

Yup! I have more of them in my tank now than anything else. (Besides bacteria).
They are neat to see. I have some bright red ones now too.

That's pretty cool, I guess its something that you just 'get lucky' when buying the LR? I'd love to have some red ones, I wonder if I could get some from my LFS, guess they'd be settled in the rock and I'd have to buy a chunk or something?

I looked even closer and found 3 more, a little smaller, but still. I guess thats proof that spread p just to see if I can get different types.

I agree...mini-duster. As long as there is a food source in your system they will thrive.

My original LR has been running for a year now. I didnt notice any life until a few weeks after it was done cycling. Give it some time and you will find a lot of interesting critters pop up, depending on how "raw" your rock is.

That live rock was likely cured live rock and if sitting in a tank by itself, will likely have little hitchhikers. You need to get live rock straight from the ocean...But then theres a chance youll get some nasty lil things too!
