    speaking of critters...what's this?

    I've got a few of these guys taking a cruise around the tank. They expand the large end, and contract it to move..and they do cruise along quickly.. any ideas if they are friend or foe?

    While we're on the topic of blobs, I have 2 that I would appreciate an ID for, they don't move or do anything interesting, but I thought that it would be good to know.
    Sorry for butting in on your blob space coral....

    Is this guy good or bad? He's a good 2 cm big, out at night and eats the detritus of the rocks and seems to do no harm, but I thought I'd ask the experts..

    Thanks for the input! No problem Tiffany, this is a good place as any to discuss mystery blobs!
    I've noticed that raising kids & fish are similar: Patience & dedication really pays off!
