    Just when you think you have seen them all, you get a new hitchiker. And this coral skeleton with zoas has been the most interesting piece I have ever had. So far it has sprouted Aptasia, Bubble Algae, Red Wire Algae and now this:

    Looks like bryopsis to me.

    I've never heard of it. I read your link though. It doesn't sound like the author had much to say about it either. I have an emerald crab if you want to give him a try.

    Thanks for the offer. There were only 3 tiny sprigs, all less than 2 cm in length. I pulled them off with surgical clamps, doing my best to get the holdfasts to come off with the plant. I'll just watch the coral skeleton they were on for a recurrence.

    Looks like common turf algae to me. Used to get tons off my algae scrubber.

    Perhaps Cladophora rupestris?
