Greetings all. I bought some aquacultured liverock, and it came with a few critters on it. Does anyone know what kind of coral this is? Also I have some type of clam or mussel as well, should I keep it or take it out? I will attach pic

Looks like lobophyllia (open brain coral). I'm not sure if the clam is in either of those pics but generally they are beneficial filter feeders.

I'm looking for some aquacultured liverock. Where did you get that rock?

Being aquacultured, likely from the Caribbean, likely a rose coral

JohnL - I’ve had good experiences with KP Aquatics (though few corals on the rock). A lot of people I’ve seen get rock from Gulf Live Rock and Tampa Bay Saltwater. Much I see from those two seems to have a lot of Cup Corals on them and the occasional Rose Coral or Porites

Yes, I order 15 pounds from KP Aquatics and was very pleased ?
