youll need to save that file to your computer and then either attach it here or host it on an external photo hosting site like photobucket.

I dunno. It looks more like a white box with a red 'x' in the centre of it.

oh Ive never noticed that on mine. theyre all in awkward areas. Its likely a colonial tunicate then, a harmless filter feeder :biggrin:

nope, theyre sessile so theyll stay where they are. parts may eventually break off and float to a new location where a new colony may start. It could very well be a sponge but theyre really dense and slimy so I dunno. I should see it I can find it in my calfo inverts book.

LOL it is kind of like the blob. The first time I saw one I thought it was one of those large flatworms but it never moved. It kind of reminds me of a really tough skinned wet mushroom in texture when you touch it.

Maybe a sea squirt, but unfortunetly not one of the pretty ones lol. Or maybe some type of sponge.

I used to have a bunch of thoes in the darker areas of my old tank. sponges are good filters and also a good indacator of tank health
