Got a little better pic of the anemone

Also noticed this thing...

And lastly, what the heck is this...he in on the side pannel of my peninsula, so you are looking at it from the top and at an angle, so you can see his underside reflected in the glass. Its probably 1.5-2 inch in size.

The second picture is that of an egg ribbon of some mollusk.
The last picture is that of a nudibranch. The tuff of tentacles in the top of the animal is it’s lung.The two dark spot in the front are eyes.

Beginning to think the egg ribbon is from the nudibranch…my wife said she saw it the other day up in the corner by the overflow, and there is another egg ribbon up there now too…

Awesome, a useful hitchhiker! As a filter feeder, I guess thats why he didn't go for my crab traps....I was moving a rock around when I found him.

Yes I’ve gotten quite a bit of rock from TBS and have gotten tons of these porcelain crabs!

The sea urchin is great. He will continue to grow. The nudibranch is fine. Won’t give anybody any problem. He is a free living nudibranch. The last crab is fine. The first crab and the anemone need to go. The egg ribbon will just become live food for the tank.
these must be Gulf of Mexico live rock from Tampa Bay.

The nem is fine. As others have said, a lightbulb anemone. I got one in my TBS live rock too.
