    Thats what I was thinking the puffer is probably eating it. They are not reef safe. It looks like its being eatin.

    Also that looks like a woods polyp or clove.

    Is this possibly eating my corals or disturbing something? Trying to get it ID'ed now...https://www.livingreefs.com/a-t21649.html#post255447

    Also, someone asked about my puffer, and it doesn't bother any of my corals or anything. It's actually really really laid back and gets picked on by my coral beauty. Here is a pic, not sure the "specific" type, but my LFS says it won't bother any corals or inverts...its really kinda cool!

    Good eye Kwater. ALL puffers will pick at corals at some point. IMHO

    Puffers tend to chew on stony corals more than going after softies.The puffer has to grind his teeth down somehow.

    Clams seem to be a favorite for Puffers to pick at too.
