Is it a moving organism? Or is it planted there? How long has it been there? Has it been growing? Did you find it after any recent additions (another fish, another piece of live rock, etc). We'd need more information about your tank.

10g Freshwater 'vase'

Is it a moving organism? well yes and no if i place a air tube next to it and attempt to touch it it will react be becomeing smaller. But as far as it roaming around the tank it doesn't move from its spot on the rock.

is it planted there? it appears to be planted on the rock. isi has not moved from its current location

How long has it been there? I noticed it about a week ago. This is a new tank that has been running for two weeks. still cycling. today will start its third week

Has it been growing? yes as of today it has grown. I will post a new picture of it futher down.

Did you find it after any recent additions (another fish, another piece of live rock, etc)? this is a new tank and everything was added within a day of each other. I will explan more below.

this is a 10 gal tank that was started two weeks ago. it is still in its cycling phase. it has curshed coral as the base ( 2 - 3 inches) 4 lbs live rock. HOB filter with just filter floss. 170 GPH powerhead for water movement. Things that i knew that were on the live rock, small sea squirt, small brain coral, clam, trumpet looking things with fingers sticking out, ( sorry dont know the correct name), gorgoniea (sp?) . As far as the item we are talking about it just showed up one day. I guess it was there but just to small to see.





as you can see it has grown over the weekend
if you have any other questions please let me know
