Hello... I got a bunch of live rock when I started this tank and then have been adding more... I have a few pics with a bunch of neat stuff, but have no idea what any is.... if anyone can gimme names that would be awesome!

I also have little tiny pinsized bug things on my newest rock, there kinda clearish and fast as lightning, anyone have these, i cant get pics there to small and fast.
There is a anenome looking thing, its clear but has little white balls on the ends of the tenticles... very small still but have a bunch.

There is a few purple coraly looking things, and the same things in orange...(pics)
Thought maybe i had some apitasia here, but the petstore said it looks different from the normal apitasia... i have others in my tank that I am trying to remove that are tiny and they look very different then these(pics)

i thought it was apitasia, but the fish place that i got it said it wasnt.. that makes me mad cuz i wouldnt have bought it it thats what it was, but it doesnt suck in when u poke it, it just kinda folds up....

THanks. I really wish i could know what the purple stuff is, its like spongy sorta... i dunno.

the clear white bugs are probable copopods and are good for your tank, fish find them delicious snakes, the aptasia can be disposed of if you will get a turkey baster and fill with lemon juice remove the rock from the tank and squirt the lemon juice directly on the aptasia, then can place rock back in tank
