    These hitchhiked and I would like to know what they are. It might not be possible until they are bigger and multiply, but you guys surprise me all the time...

    Biff, thank you... I am beginning to realize that a lot of us on here rely on your replies... Is there anything I can do to encourage their reproduction... Also, I added my Tile snowflake today. He was in my FW and I acclimated him to SW... Is there any warnings against putting corals with him...I would think he wouldn't do any damage, but would like some input... Thanks....

    Nothing much. Button polyps will catch food when they get big enough (it's awesome to watch them catch and eat mysis). But they just need low to medium lighting and they should spread on their own. It won't hurt to feed them once in a while.

    You had a snow flake eel in fresh water?
    I thought they were a salt water species.
