Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      It's probably an Aiptasia anemone; they can spread like crazy in some cases. Ideally, you should remove it in a way that doesn't pop it or leave any behind.

      They sting corals & other livestock, and they will completely cover the live rock if you don't eliminate them or at least keep them under control.

      For example:

      I had something very similar to what you're describing. The only way I could describe it was a tiny red anenome-looking thing. It was white on the inside and instead of the long "fingers" that taper, it had tiny clear balls that expanded and contracted. I was told it was harmless and to let it go and see what happened. If your guy looks like that, I'd be curious to see what it looks like full-grown. I accidentally killed mine. I have a pic of it under a thread in General Salt. "Some things in the tank." Does it look like the third set down?

      If it looks brownish/transparent it is probably an aiptasia like he mentioned earlier...in order to remove, take a small needle like object and insert lemon juice into it. works wonders.
