and the Winner is...

who would have believed it...

Yup... this whatever it is. IT has been around the EOS tank where we tried accomodating it: lighting position, water flow, even bulbs... It always seemed annoyed by Caulerpas... ZIP would avoid it as much as it could...

We received this shipment with only this as an ID: Green Finger Leather.... Which seemed pretty vague to us. It looked more like a Green Devil Hand Lobophytum of some sort or another... It also had weird retracting Feeder Stingers or Stringers... Yes very intriguing indeed... 

Since it seemed to ruin everyone's life it was decided that one EXPERT in Friendly or Edible Corals should give us his opinion... 

Who other than NYX to cope with such a dilemna      :)

We used a freshly bleached rock, bleached the cookie up to base of coral, toothbrushed it's foot, epoxied the cookie flush with rock.... etc... All to make sure no Algae would grow on or around it... ever... Or even unseen parasites... We placed it in tank at 2:00 PM... At 8:00 PM we are confident that it is adapting VERY quickly !!
