Somewhat common hitchhiker
Tiny yellow papillae; endolithic tissue yellow.
Little dots of yellow found on Gulf of Mexico live rock tend to be yellow excavating sponges.
They are not the variety that attack coral.
Peaceful and pretty yellow sponge found on live rock tend to be easy keepers in a low light reef environment.
