    Yeah, I would guess it's a collonista snail, too, but a photo would help.

    Best Placement for Photosynthetic Gorgonians

    Nice specimens! All the gorgonias I've kept, photosynthetic or not, like a good strong current. I'd also try and reposition them to make sure that they aren't rubbing up against the rocks.

    ID polyp and possible algae

    Please ID this coral.....

    "Elkhorn" is a vernacular name used for species of both Acropora and Montipora. Do a search for Montipora hirsuta (also sometimes spelled hirisuta), one of the 'Elkhorn' montiporas. It looks very similar to what you have.

    It looks like a branching montipora, but I'd need a closer photo to tell for sure.

    Worm on soft coral

    Yeah, I spend a lot of time watching the tank! Actually, the worm is pretty obvious once you look at the coral. I'm surprised it took me as long as it did to notice it!

    flatworms on my snail

    Do a search for Spirorbid worms. If that is what you have, then it's nothing to worry about, they are harmless filter feeders.

    Why is powehead shooting out gusts off small bubbles?

    How do you have it set up? How close is it to the surface? Is anything blocking the intake?

    Worm on soft coral

    No, it pokes around like a bristleworm. It's constantly moving over the coral but I've never seen it leave it.

    Worm on soft coral

    I've had this Stereonephthya for several weeks but I just noticed this worm a few days ago. I thought it was a small brittle star at first, as I've had some on other soft corals, but it's definitely a worm. It's probably 6" - 8" long, and as thick as angel-hair pasta. It doesn't appear to be...
