    i've been going around the web to find what this is but when you have no clue what to search for its kinda hard to pin point something. This thing came out of no where on one of my base rock ("dead" LR that i started with). So i guess its a good thing... my dead rock is starting to be LIVE.

    So if anyone has any ideas let me know please.

    Thanks

    Marc.

    Look for it @ night, loos kind of like a suspension feeder to me (cuecumber or such) they find a crevice were when they stick thier feeding "things" out they get good water flow over them. Thats my best shot, looks to be outstretched iun that shot.
