interesting thread. I just started a saltwater tank and have something wierd living in my live rock. it lives in a small hole that goes back into the rock about an inch, and during the day I will find this brown stuff coming out of the hole. It does not look silt, more like fish poop, but I don't have any fish or inverts in the tank yet. when I got rid of the stuff the first few times I saw it, I saw something move back into the rock, but I could not see it well. I am thinking some type of worm, I hope it's nt harmful. any ideas? I am really new at saltwater, thanks for the help!

This is a list of what came with my liverock:-

A common hairy crab - I hope thats the only one. He sucks. Bit off a portion of my Gorgonian today. Jerk.
At least 6 other small brown crabs
A light green anemone
A black slug thing
Tons of assorted little snails
A red flower tree soft coral &
Probably tons of other stuff i have not discovered yet!

This little guy is about the size of a marble and moves ever so slowly, stretching its 'arms' as it goes- has moved about 3mm in the 2 months I've had it. What is it? A sponge?
