They take anything and everything and place it on their bodies with some sort of mucus/glue to camouflage themselves, look more dominant than another, mating, or whatever the case may be. They will take pieces of coral, shells, algae, sponges etc. really cool and all are unique in their own way since they design themselves for the most part.

Definitely. I never really see them in people's aquariums. Everyone is always afraid he will mess up their coral but all of them I've had may take a piece but one I had was covered in gsp.

Green star polyp. It will literally grow anywhere and is almost impossible to kill. Anyone with a reef tank has probably had gsp before and would be happy to give you a piece of it for $5 or in my case I have to give it away to keep growth under control

I don't have all my rock yet so that's probably why it hasn't grown
