View Full Version : OMG! Parasite on Mushroom Toadstool Coral??

I'm new to soft corals and I thought this weird organism was actually "feet" of the mushroom when it was splitting. In actuality I think this parasite was killing / tearing it apart. I just removed it after a week and have isolated it.

It looks gross but cool, and moves slowly. It has antennae...

Check it out and let me know if you've ever seen it. Is it good or evil???

Nice shot! It looks like a nudibranch to me. Many of them are parasitic. I'd go to wetwebmedia.com and check out pictures there to see if I could find this specific one.
