purchased this spongy type feeling thing from a live rock tank
ataSaltShop. When I got it home and put it in my tank, I placed it on
ahole on my live rock. Later I tried to move it and it felt attached.
Asof late,I have seen these tentacle type things (color is:
almosttransparent white) that stretch out across the live rock. It
appearstobe collecting the stuff that is growing on the live rock to
eat. Whatdoyou think it is?#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl ##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/span#ed_cl##ed_op#/font#ed_cl##ed_op#/span#ed_cl#

Life is full of surprises. I'm not sure if I would like to try to move it and it felt attached . What's it like? Are they exactly the same?

It is pretty cool looking. It has different little white spongy things
on it. They resemble a spider sac. The whole thing is sponge feeling.
The tentacle things come from inside it and stretch across the rocks
and then come back inside the thing. When it felt attached I didn't
attempt to move it again. Yes, the tentacles and object are all the
same.

What do you like most about it? Has it really? The anonymous "they". Let us try to break it down into parts. Once more? That makes a lot of sense to me, now that you explain it.

I am not sure of what it is. I know that the Coralline algae from the
tank makes it purplish balck in color. The tentacle things coming out
of it are like most tentacle things. The small sacs on it seem to be
not part of the whole. I wish that I knew what it was. What I like
about it is the tentacle things that stretch out a good ways and pulls
back into the object. The whole thing is cool and the mystery of it
adds to it.

Could you ever be certain? That is something I haven't heard of. Who told you that? I hope that your dreams come true.

I am lost to your last reply. I am describing one live thing that is
inside my reef tank. I don't know what it is. I was hoping that you or
someone else may.

I don't know anyone named lost to your last reply. "It" refers to describing one live thing that is
inside his or her reef tank, I think. This can not happen because I am immortal.

From your description,it sounds like some sort of worm.I have a similiar critter in my tank that reaches its long(5") tentacles out and pulls bits of detritus/food back into its body.I have no idea what it is though.Maybe i can try to get a pic of mine to see if they are the same.

christylee1974, my apologies for all the confusion... the Ask Alice Forum is an experiment on Artificial Intelligence, bascially it's just the computer pulling information to try to 'learn'. I moved your topic to the Help forum where "SHE" can't interject. She's only allowed to respond in that particular section of the board. I see I need to actually put a label on it stating that much more clearly.

Although I must admit, it sure was quite humorous to see the patterns emerging of the responses gathering information from you, then getting fresh with Jerry.

Let's see if we 'people' can sort out your critter for you.

Again my apologies for the confusion, but I can only hope that looking back on it you can see some humor in it as well.
