Hello Rock!

New to saltwater or still thinking of moving onto it.

Hello Rock!

No. I'm not Shirley Valantine :lolflag
Just been reading an old post about interesting crawlies found in and on live rock.
So did a bit of snooping and I've found a Feather Duster :cla: It's quite small right at the back of the rocks. It's feathers are brown though is that ok?

It's amazing how interesting rocks can be, :-):

I'm going on a night time investigation tonight to see what else I can find :ye:

If you can get a red light or a red sweet wrapper from quality street over a torch works as well. Its amazing to see what is all in the rock and they don't hide from the red light.

Get yourself a red LED tourch and have a look in your tank when the lights are off at night and see a whole world of creatures and stuff that you wont see in the light......Then get reading to ID the things..... :read:
If it has fin's and swim's I'm interested in it....

Thanks Malakeye, Superdart.

When you use the torch do you turn off the moonlight leds as well.
Do Feather Dusters come in different colours.
So much to see and learn....All this and still no fish..I'll never sleep again, way too excited :-):
