I love getting out the magnifying glass and looking at the small stuff, there's always something new and cool to discover.
Today we discovered something new and pretty awesome in the tank, a teeny tiny bivalve attached to the side of the Lobophyllia. It measures just 3mm across and opens and closes so it's still living. Up close you can clearly see the inhalant and exhalant siphons suggesting that it's a harmless filter feeder. I just hope that it can find enough to sustain itself in my tank. I've no idea of an ID any further than it may be a cockle of some sorts. So cool, I love finding new inhabitants in my tank.
