Unknown Caribbean creatures
Found in some live rock from Puerto rico.
A live peanut worm, several dead ones, and two unknowns:
Attached to a rock, about two inches high and one and a half inches wide. Green, looks like a leafless shrub. Resembles fern coral. The branches appear to be hollow. It is pliant, like a plant.
The second creature, three of them. The size of a raisin, dark in color, living in holes of the rock. What part I can see is relatively smooth. Under red light at light, fans rather like feather dusters appear. I believe the fans are light colored, but of course I can't tell under red LEDs.
The hermit crabs tried to get them, and they withdrew into their holes.
Would love to see a picture if you got em.
I will keep my eyes peeled for your pics.
The hermits have so persecuted the worms that they have withdrawn into their holes. The rock is in a bowl now; they may come out later.
Here is the coral, macro algae, what ever. :)
Certainly look like a macro algae to me,nice score.Maybe a red palm macro after it has been stripped of fronds.
And one of the worms. This one is from the curing tank, so it may be in distress.
One of the peanut worms I presume?
I think so, although the one I found outside the rock is white, and the dead ones gray.
Time will tell, once its open you should be able to get a better ID.
