Topic: Corallimorph??

Subject: Corallimorph??
Date Posted: June 06 2017 at 9:22pm
I was poking around my xenia the other day and saw what I think is Corallimorph (green tentacle?), I haven't added anything new to the tank for months, and as I looked around I was able to find a few more on a separate rock not attached to the xenia island.

Should I be concerned with this?  Thanks for your feedback!

I would think that may be normal. You may have had a mushroom come in on the bottom of a coral or rock, and it gave off babies. I have new mushrooms spring up all the time. They are just as invasive as xenia in my case.  I have left mushrooms in outside of water for 24 hours, and they come back to life. They are invincible.

It's hard to see, but it looks like a majano. Good pics of that and see if that's it. If it is, they are like aptaisa and you don't want them in your tank

It looks like it could be a ball anemone, look those up and see if thats maybe what it is.

ball anemone looks closest, I'll keep an eye on them for growth and spreading.

Ball anemone is way better then majano if that's what it is! In my experience, I've never had a with ball nems taking over. It seems like more everything wins out over them.

i would agree with ball anemone. Never had a problem. They showed up when my tank was new and went away over time.
