    Hello everyone.

    I'm kinda new to the club and was just browsing around.

    Fishman, the purple encrusting stuff that hasn't appeared to open yet is probably your star polyps.

    The clear anenome looking thing (aiptasia) isn't something I particularly like in my tanks and you might consider killing it.

    If you choose to kill it don't cut or rip it cause that will only cause more in your tank. I prefer using lemon juice in a suringe.

    Can read about natural alternatives here, but I'm not a fan of copperbands if you are a beginner, because they require special feeding.

    Good luck and nice frags.

    by golly I didnt notice the aptasia. you definitely want to deal with it before it spreads if you definitely identify it as aptasia.

    My new zoo colony seems to have an aptasia on it to.I did not see it when purchased.I need to post a pic but my camera is ready for the trash.Anyway try some Joe's juice.Also sometimes when you try to inject them they will close up.
    Try feeding it first.When its full of brine shrimp it cant close up.last meal hehe.The reason for geting rid of it would be they spread and can take over your tank and string your nice coral.Your frags look nice though
