  1. What kind of snail is this??

    Maybe Stomatella... A shot during normal behaviour can help...
  2. (%&*@$# killer sponge

    Yes you can. As a second option sponges are very sensitive to air but they need much more than a minute to die...
  3. Help!!! BLUE shrooms in trouble

    Is it a sponge? it looks like it... You can remove the sponge or relocate the shrooms or try to see it the can live together...
  4. What lens to add to my Olympus?

    I have a +1 +2 +4 set for my Olympus UZ-700 and I'm very happy of the results with close up shots. From my personal experience +7 +10 is too much. You can shot a photograph of a piece of paper with it, not of a coral
  5. Our old friend...

    You can act depending on where the Aiptasia has its foot. It it is over the Zonathus body just remove it gently with a knife or something like it (Once I had an Aiptasia over my Sinularia...). If it is on the rock get some of the bi-component glue used to attach rocks or hard corals; take a little amount, make the Aiptasia retrac as much as possible and just cover it with the glue. Gone Good luck!
  6. worm id and aiptasia????

    First id is correct... Second one is not easy with this shot... Take a look at the polyps. Form the shot it seems like the have pinnulae... It means they are not like "ropes" but more like a duble sided comb... If this is true it cannot be an Aiptasia
  7. What's this on my snail, Xenia?

    Let it grow... Try to understand if it has an hard skeleton... By the way it is very interesting
  8. green/ brown polyps

    Yes, I'm pretty sure. Enrico
  9. Are these white masses eggs? Help!

    It's a sponge, harmless
  10. coral ID desperately needed!

    I agree for the Galaxea, first one looks like a Sinularia and second one might be a Cladiella. You did a good job with them. The Galaxea is in great shape also if the color makes me think of a little too high concentration of nutrients or low light... Again good job
  11. It moves only extremely slowly, right? A pair of inches a day? Maybe a closer pic can help but it might be a particular kind of sponge
  12. Sorry but it seems a flatworm as "any other". Flatworms that eat corals usually come with the coral colony they eat... By the way keep an eye on him!
  13. green/ brown polyps

    I agree, similiar to parazoanthus gracilis if I'm not wrong Enrico
  14. green/ brown polyps

    An help for the identification might come from the mat. It might be a parazoanthus. Can you please take a shot of their base? Enrico
  15. green/ brown polyps

    might be Isaurus spp also if the shot is not great for specie identification... If they open at night probably I'm right. They need feeding
