hard to say at this size, plus being a bit deformed, but looks a lot like A. tenuis.

I think you mean 6 mm, not cm, but, yes, they will eventually recover the naked skeleton. They will overlayer the existing skeleton with new and colonize it further. It takes time. I have one...

I believe we call those barnacles in English. There are many species and some are often found on coral stocks.

OK, what I'm going after is the diameter of a single coralite. If they are 1/4 inch, which is about 6mm, then it belongs to the smaller polyped species of Montastrea. M. curta is the most likely...

Geniacanthus bellus

I have been checking out some G. bellus for my reef. As I understand, they are all females when young and then the dominant fish changes over to become the male of the harem. As they are considered...

A. desalwii?

A new charge in the tank. I think it is A. desalwii, but it could be A. plana.

Any opinions?

Can't wait to see a new foto. I think the polyps of M. hispida are much more closely set than in your piece. They would give the appearance of a closed 'fluffy' surface when extended, such as one...

Dan,

look carefully at the radials. On A. gemmifera they are truly aligned in rows and of uniform size with flat, at an angle, polyp tips. On A. samoensis, there is less alignment of the...

Aren't you sleeping at this hour!

Anyway, I saw what may also be A. samoensis in a LFS last week with the same colouring, but somewhat bluer on the tips. I may just have to go back and get it.

Actually, that isn't a copepod, rather a gammarus. Related to the shrimps. As you said, a good thing. Great clean-up crew member that doubles as lunch for many fish.
