    Lettuce Nudibranch hitchiker!

    I finally discovered my little green hitchiker's name! The kid's and I have been watching him for the last three weeks wondering what he was. He's just a little under 1cm long. Very cool! I took photos, but my camera (or maybe it's just my photo taking technique) just doesn't do the little guy any justice. :smile3:

    The live rock I bought from the local LFS was Haitian and full of baby serpent stars, a large variety of snails (minute but still they will grow), some amoeba like critters (I haven't figured these ones out yet), bristle worms, feather dusters, and this one little green guy! We are amazed at the variety of critters, I bought liverock before and didn't find anything other than coraline.
