I Purchased a rbta a while back and it was attached to a piece of lr , the lr has some mushrooms and an encrusting type coral attached to it. I think it's montipora nodosa any ideas?http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160701/133037dfffe1fb3838cb43b5c6f31f19.jpg

If you are referring to the, what looks to be a remaining old skeleton on the right side of the Rhodactis mushroom pictured.

I could be wrong but it looks like a bryozoan to me, pretty rare to see. Last time I saw this was about 15 years ago on a live rock shipment, a book ( i forget the name of the publication) referred to it as birds beak coral, even though it has a hard stony skeleton its not really actually a true coral, just going off the top of my head though, so again could be wrong. Very little out there about this family of animals.
