your right about polyps curling into theirselves. My majanos had clearly visible tenacles. even the very small ones. the whole tube thing throws me off. i really dunno.

Now I wish I really had a better camera! I could try and get a pic of the tube too if you want. Maybe I could move the rock it's on closer to the front of the tank then take a pic when it comes back out. I'll see what I can do, I've been doing some reading about the majanos, don't want it to be that at all!

i will tell you that if it is a majano, it will spread extremely quickly. If this is the only one you have two weeks from now, we might be able to rule out majanos.

Well then fortunately I think the majanos can be ruled out, it's been in the tank for about 3 or 4 weeks, it started out kind of a yucky green and now it's the purple/maroon, and there aren't any others like it in the tank, the only other things we seem to have a lot of are really small tube feather dusters and another duster I don't know what it is called but it's real shy too and see thru.

The reason I posted this is I was hoping it was something good and that it would populate, it really is quite pretty but it's just one and no signs of anymore.

Anyways I'll still try to get some better shots of before and after.

Thank you both!

Set your camera on the highest resolution you can. Use a tripod if possible. If not sit in a chair with your arms on the arms of the chair or on your legs to help stablize yourself.

Dont try to zoom in to far on the subject. the key is to try to make sure the camera is focusing on what you want it to and not on a surounding rock or something else further away.

Once you get the image off the camera use a photo editing tool to crop out the photo and keep only the area around this thing.

If the photo is still to large to upload then you can contact me or kevin for our e-mail address so you can e-mail the image directly to us for either an ID or to help resizing the image to get it to be in a condition that it can be uploaded.
