@Tonycass12 This sponge has a unique pattern, and we see it often.
Jocelyn has done quite a bit of digging to identify it with no luck. Sent photos to a couple experts, so let's see.

Please DM us or email us if you have insight on it.

Dry rock transformed into real living Live Rock!

The dry rock has been completely covered by various sponges, various tunicates, 2 colors of coralline, macro algae and a multitude of micro critters living in the crevasses and surface within 8 months.

Can't wait to get done working on the house I purchased. Got a 10x10 area in the floor reinforced wired to handle a nuclear plant and now working on gas lines. Planning on a 220g solely powered by tbs rock and sand. Torn between artificial light and harnessing the sun.

Howdy @liverock ! Happy Thanksgiving to you.

We didn't see this gem until unloading...visibility was 6" that day.
Welcome to Gulf diving...nothing like dropping down and find the bottom by hitting it..or bumping into a 400 pound grouper....scares him and me about the same LOL....I had many six inch or less vis days....it is what it is...but when you have the best live rock on the planet...and your gps can take you within to feet of it every time..drop the anchor...hop over and harvest the rock. ..is neat going home and seeing what treasures you got in zero vis.

The TBS farm turns into a nursery this time of year.
Great to see a healthy environment that is thriving with an assortment of juvenal critters!

(They love TBS live rock! We do our best to leave them in the Gulf, but a few seem to hitchhike in.)
