My name is Rob W. And I have a story for everyone.
I recently purchased some live rock for my first reef tank. The store associate examined them and claimed that there were no hitchhikers seen. So me being new to reefing I was quite surprised to wake up the next day to this beautiful creature waving to me (pictures included). Two days later it’s twin appeared on the opposite side of the same rock. Any ideas? I am not complaining because I only paid $12 for the rocks.

Rob, Welcome!

Thanks for the photos. Maybe I am only one who ran and put "condylactus anemone" into my browser?! LOL love that we're always sharing and learning here.
