If you wish to post pictures for us all to gawk at, use the photography forum. If you want help in identifying critters or will allow us to use them (with credits given) then feel free to post here!

1- Size is ~640 pixels max for the forums, that helps alot.

2- You can post them as links from another site (many free hosting services won't allow it) or you can upload it with your message.

3- The property remains yours, we're not here for profiteering or commandeering anyones intellectual property.

Awesome! Thanks for posting.

Do you mind if I drop them into our hitchiker gallery on the main page? (If not, msg me how you want the credits shown.)

Great shots on some of those critters! I'll try to get to adding them to our hhfaq in the very near future.

Thanks for posting everything!

Cool thread. Hello all, this is my first post back here in about 4 years (took a long hiatus from the hobby).

This little monster came hiding in my brown star polyps. As you can see it's easy to miss (see second photo).

There were 3 of them and they EAT the polyps. I sucked them out with a turkey baster and flushed them.

May I add more images, only not all are identified?
Another group of pictures for the FAQ is waiting for identification in the Multiple ID for HitchFAQ thread.

These white threads appear when my substrate gets stirred up. Are they coming out of the strange tubes coming off my live rock in the second pic? What are the threads? What are the crusty tubes?
those are vermetid snails.

Thanks for the welcome, herpencounter.

I only saw them when they came out of the polyps onto the rock. I watched them for a few days thinking "how cool, some neat slugs". Til I noticed my polyps were disappearing 8O
