Title: Any I.D. On this weird looking thing?
Post by: Jooak9 on September 27, 2020, 20:15:19
I have google searched and google searched and canít find anything that looks like this!

Anyone have any idea what it could be?

Notes:

- Growing in a cave
- two pictures attached to this message - 1 picture a wide shot and 1 pic up close
- appears white
- almost looks like tentacles
- Tentacles are growing downward towards the sand

Wanted to include a few more pictures to help with the ID in case it helps.

It is deep in the circled cave

Thanks @jjoos99 Jeff

If it is. Sponge - how in the world could it have got in there if I did not put it in there? Any idea? Do they just miraculously appear?  All my rock is actually marine pure synthetic rock and started dry from the factory.

Can sponges hitch hike on coral frags/plugs or something?

It is amazing what pops up in your tank over the years! I used to love taking a red light at night and looking through my tank to see all the little things you miss during the day when the lights are on.
