    Ok so I fed the seahorses and was looking around the tank when i spotted this thing. It has what looks like blue fungus growing on it and it moves at the end. At first I thought it was some sort of anemone because it seemed to have tentacles. But the body looks like a worm.

    When i poked it with a stick it was very slimy and the slime stuck to the stick.

    It is moving really slow like it might be dying whatever it is.

    WTF?! Video and pic

    Yes I did get the package from TBS and I pulled out a dead sea cucumber about a week after I got the package but it sure didnt look like this thing LOL. I dont think it shipped well.

    I havent seen it one time in all these months, it must have been hiding pretty good. I feel bad it looks like it starved to death I had no idea it was in there.

    It somehow moved because its not there anymore and I dont see it anywhere.

    Poor thang
