    Ok, so I just bought an Acro from a local chain that will not be named when I went to get a few non-livestock things. They were running it under PC lights with no actinic :doh:and I have an AI prime LED. I've been reefing for a while and have experience acclimating coral under normal...

    I took a look at my tank this evening and noticed the crazy looking bubbly slime stuff in the picture. I believe the acro was maricultured. I only gave it a half hearted dip prior to putting it in the tank. It appears to have fern caulerpa or some other macro algae that hitched hiked with it...

    LFS wasn't able to give me a species ID, just that it was "deepwater" Color is mostly yellow, though it may not be showing its true colors yet. Any ideas on the species? I hate not knowing what a coral is.

    Sorry for continually asking about this and the not-so-great pictures (below), but last night I noticed red bugs around the base of my green acro. It looks like they are causing STN. For the past week or so it has been browning, and I initially thought it wasn't liking the light it was in, so I...
  7. SPS Coral Forum
    Sorry for continually asking about this and the not-so-great pictures (below), but I'm pretty sure that this is STN. For the past few days my green acro has been browning, and I initially thought it wasn't liking the light it was in, so I adjusted that, but now I am noticing tissue loss along...

    I need a little help with a bonzaii acro I have. The color is bad, faded at the bottom and brownish on the undersides of some of the branches. There are still polyps but they can only really be seen with just the blues on since they're neon green. I was told to put it more in the shadows down at...

    My uncle has this coral and he doesn't know what it is. It is an acro of some type I think. He was told it is a hawkin blue enchinata or a Garf purple bonsai. Any help would be nice.
