View Full Version : Can anyone ID this?

04/11/2017, 05:31 PM
I posted this to the new to hobby last week and wasn't able to get a solid answer. General consensus so far is that it's a leptoseris of some sort.

It's hard, it does nor shrink or expand like a mushroom. I have been waking up in the middle of the not to see if it's attempting to feed and have yet to see any action from it what so ever.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I'd like to see this little guy flourish. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170411/13dbe3b8c0d9d6c292b915576b13c598.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170411/43acb7d875d3bb77875427df9340c3b2.jpg

Does indeed look like a Lepto, I have one myself and cant find a bunch of info on them. I have mine under moderate flow and superglued it vertically to the back of my tank. Both the lit and unlit sides are happy. I dont get a lot of extended feeder tentacles but it does catch capelin eggs when i spot feed, the feeders I do see are abt 1 x 10mm and clear - hard to see

I think that is leptoseris gardneri

Good news. I had put it in a spot where it seemed to be too bright, so I moved it into a shaded area and now it's beginning to get its colour back and has also grown over most of the shell it is on. I glued the shell to a larger rock and will let it sit there till I move my tank to the 50g cube... still yet to see any sweepers or sign of feeding though. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170531/9171ff050391f8aacfd5cd71938ef545.jpg
