This is VERY zoomed in, the white at the bottom is sand.... Guessing a baby feather duster?

The first picture looks like a possible aptasia anenome which is a bad thing to have in the tank. The send definitely looks like a vermented snail!

I agree, feather duster in the first- actually cool its red. Vermatid in the last 2 i believe. These arent necessarily a problem but if their slime webs land on nearby corals it can cause issues. I just pop them off the rock with a small screwdriver, but others have used superglue to permanantly seal them.

Found more of the orange yesterday afternoon on a different empty shell.

Slightly concerned, these were shells added to the tank. They were rinsed in salt water (from a water change) for a couple days before adding. But I didnt scrub them or anything like that.

Anyway, I doubt that its something that came in on the shells, but thought I would mention it.
 

Can you run a a successful reef long term without some type of reactor and media?
