    Bought this coral at the weekend and now can't remember what it was called. If anyone knows what it is id be pleased if they could let me know what it's.

    Also I bought some mushrooms on a price of live rock and then I found 2 of these at opposite ends when I got home.

    Top one looks like Gonioporia potentially Alviopora

    Should be on the sand needs feeding or they slowly fade away

    There are specialised foods for them
    Do a google search

    +1 on Gonioporia

    The second pic looks like some type of dark sponge to me.
