I got my shipment on Friday and I got some really beautiful rock. :D
Well I also noticed tons of flower pot anemonies and two anemonies that got me wondering what they are. It tough to see colors since I dont have my lights on yet.

They are brown with long tentacles and they have moved around a bit on the rock. They are mid size anemones with a area of about a siver dolar or larger. They have long tentacles. My question are these condylactus? or are they aptasias?
I dont mind, but If they are aptasias I need to kill them asap.
Thanks

AWESOME!
:D
BTW Richard, The other three guys who ordered with me where very impressed with your rock. I told they would, but where WoWed when they actually saw it. :)

Here is another question:
on one of the rocks, there is this thick orange sponge on it, and some of it is deteriorating and turning white with a fuzz. I figured that would be normal. Should I rip those pieces off so the rest doesnt get infected?

just remove anything does not look right.....the rest usually grows back after the cycle, let your nose tell you if it is bad...

Thanks

No flower pot anemones (Gonioporas) in the gulf either. Don't buy Gonioporas, please! (Do a search if you want to know why).

The brown things are probably a type of curlicue anemone, but I don't know the genus/species name. I have several (ranging from dime size to quarter size), they appear to be harmless (well, I saw one try to eat a bristleworm, but the bristleworm got away).
