Aptasia coming in with new coral?

Recommended Posts

I'm testing the waters with my first coral. Just a blue mushroom.

 

I have the new coral in question in quarantine for now, but I noticed a small anemone looking thing on the rock with the coral. I didn't see this before until today (it's been about 4 days in quarantine) and I 'm not actually sure what it is. Part of me is concerned about it being aptasia 'cause I don't want to unleash that on my tank.

 

Any help is appreciated.

It looks like a polyp, could be wrong but it might be gsp or pulsing xenia or something dont take my word for it tho.

Not aptasia and would assume a clove polyp of some sort

That was my first thought because the top section didn't look very "anemone-y" but it is pretty transparent and there look to be a few of them. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

If it is a polyp, it would explain why it has come back with such vigor only now. It and the mushroom have stabilized at the same time (I have them both in lower light for now) and both were understandably agitated in transport.

 

Ah a clove polyp. Yes that does look similar. Thanks for the info.
