    Something weird growing

    I have something growing in my tank and i'm not sure exactly what it is. I've had/seen aptasia and i don't believe this is what it is.

    Is mostly clear with a reddish tint but has bright white tips. It is growing in clusters. I'm hoping its dome sort of featherduster.

    I can't get a good picture so it wouldn't help to show you one.


    Any ideas?

    My live rock, which is about nine months old now, is sporting some blue green star polyps that came with the rock. These hitchhiker star polyps are a different green than the star polyps that I purchasd from the LFS.

    Looks nice and defintely less expensive when it comes with the rock!
