    Hello again,

    I was hoping someone could help me identify some things growing.

    First up, I think is some kind of stony coral?

    Next, I have these tube-like things growing all over. They are coiled once at the base, then extend up. They often have a fine thread coming from them which extend 6-8 inches.

    I know these last two are crappy pictures, sorry in advance.

    I had this red/black centipede-like worm pop his head out for a few minutes. Bristle worm?

    I have had this jelly like thing on my live rock for several months now. It does not appear to be growing or moving. Its a milky white color with green/brown spots.

    1. Looks like macro algae.

    2. Some kind of harmless tube worm

    3. Bristle worm - tank cleaner

    4. Sponge - good for filtration
