Your favorite live rock hitchhiker that you have gotten. I found recently I got a bicolor blenny that was hiding in some rock attached to a coral. I'll get a better picture, he is sticking his head out here lol...

Porcelain crabs are awesome.. Can't have enough brittle stars lol. I found a lot of hhs this tank. There are three pencil point urchins, a purple and orange pistol shrimp, some baby stars, and of course blenny. There was a mantis, but he went to a friends doing a species tank

A purple and a green montipora. I bought an acro on a rock and it must have had these before but were snapped off or something. I couldn't even see the little bits left behind but all of a sudden 2 different sps were growing off the back. I've now fragged the purple twice and the green 4 times and they keep coming back. Best freebee ever...

Just for fun. What is...

A couple years ago I bought a blue sponge on a softball size rock. Inside I could see some movement but not enough to make a ID. After a week I Spotted a arm of a small serpent star so I kept trying to get a good look at it because I was seeing something else in there. Another 3 weeks go by then I finally spot a claw in there from a red banded snapping shrimp. Apparently they had a symbiotic relationship. At the time I had a red coris wrasse that is reef safe with caution. Reef safe with caution means it's going to eat something. Also had a rock boring clam, may still have it!

I got some tiny neon blue sponges that were pretty sweet. Plus a million feather dusters

An entire live fish is a great hitchhiker! I've had sea stars, pistol shrimp, corals, macro algae, worms, etc, but these are my favorite two:

goodness no! His body is about the size of a golf ball now, about 4" with spines. I found him when he was about the size of a pencil eraser. I actually found THREE- but all the coraline in my 75 couldn't support that many, so I sold the other two to the LFS
