Black stomatella

Anyone know how big these things get? Not necessarily the black variety, I have a whitish coloured one also but I see the black one on a regular basis after dark. It survived my move and I know I've had it for almost 6
months now, since I noticed it anyway. It was about a half inch long when I first noticed it. Its almost 2 inches now, hides up under the rock during the day and comes out after dark, it's usually on the glass and I've never seen it on the corals. I find it interesting because it has grown way quicker than anything else in the tank. It's the same size as my clown now. Just curious to see when it'll stop growing!

Re: Black stomatella

Ill try to get a pick tonight and upload. Could have had a perfect shot last night, he was directly behind the clown which would have shown the size if it.
