NANFA-- bryozoans
Mon, 21 Aug 2000 21:27:31 EDT

I have found the mother load of bryozoans! everything from golf ball sized to
basket ball sized. I managed to tear a small on off it's substrate and
transfer it to my swamp tank but is almost weightless and it difficult to
keep in one place. I saw many baseball sized colonies but they were attached
to large objects that I couldn't move. I saw one colony about the size of a
softball that was free floating, bouncing along the bottom with the tides and
currents. They look very much like a brain coral but are really hard masses
of clear jelly with a thin coating of polyps.
