    ID Please

    Anyone able to Id the following ?

    Noticed a bunch on my liverock over last few days... think it;s some kind of algae.

    Looks like a tubeworm but it's white or light green and no tube, but sticks out on a long narrow stem. perfectlt round... sorry can't give much better of a description...

    It is a type of algae called Neomeris Annulata. It is rather common although not everyone gets it for some reason ( myself included). It will not grow very long, usually not more than 1" or 2"s.

    Time to get a camera or someone else who has one .... a picture is worth a 1000 words ...
    It's not junk, it's un-assembled DIY!

    Those look like tiny featherdusters....most people ahve tons of them. THey are filter feeders. Nothing to worry about. They will open and close if you get close to them with anything.
