Our Underwater Life

When you buy a piece of live rock, you never quite know what sort of tiny creatures have made their homes (or nests) on it, so it's really fun to keep watching as things change and grow. I've noticed a few different kinds of sea snails emerge since my last post about our salt water aquarium, but I have not ever seen this one until last night, when he was plastered to the front of the tank. If I had to name him, it would be Elephant Snail because of his weird trunk. Very strange. He could be in a Dr. Seuss book, I think.

Lots of other things are growing too, like our corals and this huge anemone (2nd picture):
