    Algae or Macroalgae? ID Help Please!

    Put them on it and pluck out what you can and it should be gone fast. Sometimes they are slow to find things.

    Nice to hear that. Now that the holiday backlog is done with that hopefully that will be the case for everyone else now too. 🤣 🙂

    Aahhh you beat me to it. +1 on the ID. Easier to get rid of than Byropsis species is the good news.

    Caulerpa verticilatta. Aka fuzzy caulerpa. Hermits eat it as do emerald crabs etc... it is a fast grower and can be a pain to trim. I think it looks nice, YMMV.

    What type of....whelk?

    Somewhere in that family I think, here is one that is encrusted: http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=image&tid=217065&pic=52339

    Thank you! The smaller "nano conchs" you may have been looking for are dove snails. We may carry them in the future, it is hard to get them in regular supply.

    Just so you know

    lol definitely looks like a filefish in the full sideways shot of the fish. That is wild. Such a tiny distribution area too, it is basically confined to an area the size of the coast of one of the Carolinas. Just such a tiny range, must be some geographic features trapping him in. edit, nevermind my first source was saying they were found off just the one bay, but this says it is all of S Australia which makes more sense: https://www.aquamaps.org/receive.php?type_of_map=regular I wonder if the other island chains have their own special cowfish, they don't like open water maybe there are more weird local species that evolved....

    A cowfish, from Southern Australia it is probably temperate and risky but there is one in captivity living in Tokyo.

    This fish exists. It isn't nano or anything, I have never seen it before, the males are very good looking: https://www.google.com/search?q=aracana+ornata&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwijjaO-z9DfAhUFvlkKHYWCCRwQ_AUIDigB&biw=1105&bih=863 Thought you would like the share. 🙂

    Did I go crazy

    Or at least none that I know of. If we shipped you a fish I apologize, I don’t know how that happened send me an email when you can and I can look into it. (If you have already sent an email I should get to it in a few hours).

    Weird how many snails are predatory isn’t it? Most are. Wouldn’t consider such animals as hunters if I didnt know.

    Ridged Cantharus and the Wavy Goblet, (also a Cantharus species) look similar. The latter I think is closer looking the former more common. What do you think he looks like under the algae? Those species are usually distinguished by their whorls.
