Red coral? BTA (wishful thinking lol)



What is it? Only thing I can think of is an anenome. IT was acutally in my sump and i added to the main tank and noticed him. It was opened just a little when i moved him and he had looked like bubble tip "arms or tentacles"

I've had these anemones before and they've never become a problem. Actually, I have two of them right now. I wouldnt' worry about it.

Agreed, this species of Corallimorph shouldn't be a hinderance. They will spend most of their time retracted or hidden during daylight hours. Being heterotrophic, they will flourish or not based on available food sources. They do have a decent punch to them but I have yet to see an issue with the ones I have. As long as they don't reproduce in large numbers (which I doubt), they should be an interesting addition.

Cheers
Steve
