    I found another creature recently. It looks kind of like a slug that is camophlage to look like a polip.
    If you go through a whole day without learning something new, you wasted it.

    It is realy hard to get good pictures. This picture shows him wraped around the base of the polip.

    your going to want to check the rest of your zoos very verygood, if they are not present you can almost bet that they have some little eggs laid. I would give all of your zoo's an iodine dip. these little guys are very nasty. but they are fairly easy to eradicate. with patience and a watchfull eye you should be allright.
    They are actually very neat little creatures. it amazes me the colors they take on when they are munching on zoo's they blend perfeclty to the specific colony they are on. I had some on a hot pink colony and they were beautiful. but they had to go.

    Good luck
