ID help - not sure what this is….


Recommended Posts

I have had this Australian rock in my system for a year or more. The other day I noticed these little palm tree looking things on the rock. They are about 3/16” across and and maybe that tall as well. Thank you for any assistance from the forum!

Looks like a pipe organ type 🦧

I looked up some pictures of pipe organ corals and they do look very similar. It does not appear to have any hard tubes though. When they are closed they look like little bumps on the rock.

Clove Polyps would be my guess.

 

I would try to remove them if possible, they will eventually take over other coral.

That certainly seems to match closely. Any thoughts on keeping it or should I consider it a pest and get rid of it?

I have that same thing currently taking over my zoas. It grows on everything.

For me it grew similarly to zoas and just treated them as such. I personally never had an issue with them taking over.

What ever the ones I had are taking over, grow right up the stalks of my larger zoas till they closed up. I fragged the zoas and “scrubbed” them. Seem happy today so far…
