Hi jonjbck,

Your image is not working for me. It looks like you forgot to hit the [Img] icon one last time to close the tag.


but then again I'm computer illiterate Rolling Eyes

While we're at it - Can anyone ID this one. It's brownish/gold, ruffled, rubbery and grows in leaves like butter lettuce?

jonjbck- I'm no expert but that looks like a tree coral to me, although the thick base is puzzling so maybe I'm wrong.. is it soft?

dale- sorry no idea Question

I believe that's some sort of algae. I forget the name, though.

Pete you're right that looks like brown plate algae, but maybe not if it's rubbery

its some tyep of macro algae. I have something like that but its more of a yellow colour. propgation of it is pretty easy. chop off a clump and superglue it to a rock.

the soft coral looks like a colt or tree coral, maybe I am mistaken but I didn't think the substrat was where they were normally found?
