Looks like aptasia to me.  Better to get rid of it before it spreads out of control.

Yep, aptasia, best things I have heard were some butterflies and peppermint shrimp, at least for natural controls. Outside of that there are injection methods, manjaro wands (burns/electrolysis), and lasers that can help get rid of them. Important thing with wand/laser is to make sure you scoop out remains.

Edit: one more note regarding the butterflies, they will eat some corals as well. If you only have a couple, a single peppermint should do the trick. Once outbreak starts, you might need more depending on size of tank

Getting settled in and loving it!

I visited the 2 stores here in Savannah and they are .....OK.

There is a coral guy, like Brian, whom I have yet to meet.

I have a feeling I may do a lot of mail orders from Brian, and also some from you!

Charleston supposedly has some nice stores so I will head up there next year.

I will be ordering my new tank right after Christmas and cant wait to get up and running.

Then I will get with Keith and arrange getting my stuff back home and give Keith and his wife a vacation at the beach!
