My bad yes they look like green furry mushroom not gsp , the stalk thing you describe sounds like fan worm , does it look like an umbrella opened up too far

Have you been using Aips x ? I had some and used this and have never seen them since :) Very good stuff if you can get them all.

Yeah been using it and it gets rid of them. Seems I just find a small one somewhere else ha. Some bits of rock are hidden so I can't see under cracks etc.
It's been great though on the stuff I can see

Hey [MENTION=23672]MalcolmFish[/MENTION] tanks progressing nicely , oh the strange slug thing you spotted is a stormatella , good guys Big Thumbs Up , aip x brilliant stuff if you can get to them , found peppermint shrimp get the ones you can't reach , if you get one that eats them bit hit and miss , they either will or wont Hysterical

Yeah going well but think maybe have to invest in a peppermint shrimp.
Would he/she get on with my two cleaner shrimps and fire shrimp?

Shall I take off and re attach or will it grow out itself.. If you understand me

And some update on corals and my Bubble tip, unfortunately my malu went mental and decided it had enough. Went brown and shrivelled and leaking lots of milky stuff from itself. It also had its mouth open so a bad sign. Decided to get it out as it was making everything else sad too and down.. Not sure why it happened :(.
