    so when i got this live rock i noticed something very tiny growing on it and a few months later i identified it as an anemone it's grown quite a bit since then but is still very small, i was wondering if any of you know ways to help it grow i have liquid food and growth stimulator they both say to feed three times a week would it hurt it to feed it more or would that help it grow? i'll attach a picture just in case it's actually not an anemone.

    Going to need better and closer pics to get any sort of accurate ID.

    Though it looks a little like these ricordia, unless your talking about the pale bubble tip to the right?

    no no not the bubble tip, and you're right it does kinda look like those just not as fully grown do ricordia shrivel up at night into a little ball? that's what this little guy does when the light goes off then opens back up in the day time

    You sure it's not a brown button polyp? They have tiny tentacle looking things around the edges. It could be a mojano or something (pest anemone), they look similar, but I can't see it good.

    there's tentacles everywhere not just along the sides, it hasn't reproduced or anything and i've had it for about 5 months now so if it is a pest it's not acting very pesty

    Sounds more like a mojano. Could also be a riccordia mushroom or something. It would help if you can get a pic more from the top.

    The mojanos that showed up in my tank didn't spread very fast, nothing like aiptasia, so that doesn't mean it's not one.

    Can't tell from the pic though.

    Mushrooms do shrivel up at times, especially if they're trying to eat something floating in the water, but mojanos act similar.
