Wild, wild guess. But the fuzzies could be some kind of preliminary root system for the growth? 

Filament roots yes.

I wanted the tank set up and cycled as much as possible as soon as I can, just waiting now for it to be SPS ready....

It's a Micro Brittle star, approx 2cm across

Nice and neat looking tank, the rock wall is absolutely unique looking!

 

If you have the patience to let this tank grow and settle, it should become very interesting. 👍

Thanks. 

Thats the plan for the 365 day challenge, bung a few frags in and watch it grow, maybe a high end piece towards the end of the year

I love stomatella snails, I’ve only got them as hitchhikers before. In my really old tank I used to have a ton and they would spawn all the time.

I have a couple of online vendors that are "sponsoring" me, basically I message them enough they send me a couple of things to keep me quiet for a month 😄

A few online vendors in the UK are selling smaller CuC members like the Stomatella, Brittles, Asterina, bristle worms etc

I saw that and was desperately searching for a Green Cap that I could afford with the change in my pocket!

This is February's Budget
