Is this a micro monti or some type of algae or the worlds smallest macro? No, not the blue rics but the stuff to the center rear of the rics. First correct answer gets to go noodling for sharks.

It's plating coralline algae

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

It seems to be doing well. If that trend continues I promise to give a piece to everyone on Nanoreef except Lani.

I'd love to get a good sized sample of that to grow out. If you decide to frag it out please do contact me.

I will stick a frag rock next to it and see if it grows over it.

I used to have a that on a mushroom rock way back in the day. It overgrew and pinched off all the mushrooms.
