Ok, while reading this <<thread>>
, I decided to purchase a sponge for my coral beauty. I then started investigating the species to discover that there is conflicting information as to whether it is safe of not for an aquarium. Some sites say they are guaranteed to die and will release a bad toxin into the water and kill pretty much everything. Other places say they are fine.
I think it is a red wall sponge but not sure, any info would be appreciated. Should I remove it ASAP or will it be ok? Also, according to LFS
, to the best of his knowledge, the sponge had never been exposed to air. He bagged it underwater and I put it into my tank underwater.
