an elusive mushroom
i was doing tank maintenance on my 14g cube a few days ago and lo and behold, i saw what i thought was a small (about the size of a penny) bluish colored mushroom. it was down in the rocks, in a crevice. later that day, i looked and didn't see him so figured my mind was playing tricks on me. but then, the next day, there he was again. he seems to come and go but i always see him in the same spot.

now, this tank has no modifications, just has the stock lighting that wouldn't support any sort of corals. could this guy have come in on the live rock that i started my tank with months ago? i have named him abraham. don't ask me why, it just seemed to fit. :)

Looks like it might possibly be a hairy mushroom? I have one that looks a lot like yours. It has just now (been in the tank for about 2 months) started to look like a hairy mushroom.
