LR critters



Seems to do some growing. Not sure on this one.



It has a yellow tentacle which moves around near the top. I've seen it drag in some dead matter via some sort of clear mesh. It just appeared one day, hasn't moved or grown for a month.

Sorry about the medicore picture quality. Clarity goes down a lot when your glass isn't clean

The top pic looks to be a colony or zooanthids. Does a flower-like polyp come out of the center of each hole? The second looks like a feather duster.

The second one doesn't seem to be an average featherduster. I have a ton of those
I've never noticed any polyps from the supposed zoo colony. But I swear (or imagined) that more of them appeared.

The top picture could possibly be a tunicate cluster.
