Lol this guy is starting to look like something out Pirates of the Caribbean. Lol I think it looks cool but it's starting to get big, and want to make sure this isn't any pest plant life.

Yes...and no. It looks like some form of ulva, which is nice up until it's really not. It could be worse, though: I found a majano stuck to the shell of one of my snails the other day. Pretty!

Ahh, just did some research on Ulva, Man why does it have to be invasive, looks so cool. I guess Ill be treating him with some Hydrogen Peroxide tomorrow.

haha a majano on the shell, thats crazy.

...I paid extra for overnight delivery, and this is what I ended up with!
Take him out and brush him off with an old tooth brush, rinse in tank water and place him back in
