Rhodactis split,yay.

Recommended Posts

Got home an hour or so ago and noticed, “my first of this mushroom coral/anemone that I have ever had, or seen in our neck of the woods”, had split,:clap2::clap2:.

No I have never kept one and due to warmer waters from climate change around here, they arrived late last year from what I can see on the sunshine coast, possibly with the green hammers of three I found up there.

This is because the spot I found five of them has never had them and nearly knowing every rock or reef section in SEQ I have never any in SEQ before!

That doesn’t mean that they were not around somewhere, but not where I have been.

Five small ones were there and 3 are still there, so hope fully they will keep expanding in their colony as no one will find them at the spot I go to out of seven for crays or our endemic dotty back.

I had no idea what it actually was, well I thought they were morphs until the helpful guys over on reef central helped me out with the ID of these inverts, that I have not had at all, not in my 34 years of reefing.

Mine are whoppers now compared to the ones I found!

Mum and the kid,lol.

As usual, for lots of reef or oceanic knowledge, this is the clubs website.
