    The Fungi from Yuggoth or... what IS this?

    Something new has appeared in my terrarium. When I returned home this afternoon I find this growing on the glass-I haven't tried wiping at it, it's just weird-mabe a lichen or something?

    Overall this thing is about 2-3" high and 1 1/2-2" wide


    Looks like some kinda undersea fan!





    is this a weird slime mold? Any ideas?

    Whatever it is it's larger than it was a few hours ago when I posted the pics above! I left for Target to get some groceries and now it's bigger with two of the fan growths...

    You better watch out for those tentacles, man! Hope you make it out alive... But then, knowing Lovecraft, it may be nicer to say I hope you die quickly.

    If I had to make a guess, I'd say it's a slime mould. Still just a guess though.

    It's prettty neat to watch since it seems to change hourly. Will be neat to see it in the morning, or if it even is still there in the morning cos it wasn't there before lights out on the tank last night.

    That is pretty! You should do a time lapse video of it so we can all watch it grow hourly!
