    Additional Information & Description

    First of all, I know it's not a WORM! I had to pick a category for "type" and there is not one for "sponge" or "other"

    I've had this sponge since September of 2005. It goes through stages of growth and decline but always seems to hang on. It would probably do much better if I did more supplemental feeding. Long-term survival for these in captivity is not that great, so the fact that I've kept it alive for seven years feels pretty good.

    My sister-in-law once asked why I had a Cheeto in my fish tank...
