    These are very small mushrooms but I can't seem to find them to ID them. They are about 1/4inch and seem to be multiplying. 2nd looks like a Tunicate but the shape looks different. It's about 1/2 inch and looks like a taco. Thanks for everyone's help saitoking

    The first look like bleaching button polyps. They probably hitched in on the LR

    The 2nd looks like it could be a stometilla ( I know it's spelled wrong ) snail.

    I will try to post a better picture. It can't be a snail unless it's dead because it doesn't move. Button polyps, they will probably die because I am not running enough light for polyps? Mainly a FOWLR tank. Was on some LR. The light is a 48 inch Aqueon Modular LED with 3 X 29 1 watt LEDs . Thanks saitoking

    The button polyps might do OK with the low light. They don't require high amounts of light. If you could, I would move them as high up as possible, and spot feed them some small chunks of food when you do feed your fish.

    You also have the option of trying to sell the rock on craigslist. Someone local might want some polyps.

    Here is a better picture of the 2nd thing that thought was a tunicate. It looks like it has a tube at the top of it. Thanks BJ I don't mind having some inverts and I do have it about 6 inches from the top. I will try to feed them and see how they do. Thanks saitoking

    I have a couple rocks (approx 7" diameter) that are 100% covered with these bleached button polyps. What would be a fair craigslist price?

    about the second, unidentified creature...or possibly ex-critter....is it hard or soft, does it ever swell up or shrink down. What does it do at night after everything is dark?

    Inquiring minds want to know....but seriously those answers wouold help with ID....
