    Hi all, About 6 months ago I added 4 acroporas from the LFS. 3 manage to polyp up and one did not. I tried different spots in the tank but nothing seemed to work. Finally, I gave up and placed it at the bottom of the rock work on the sand bed and forgot about it. Fast forward to today and I...

The clam was drawn in and others corals were as well. The power went off here for 6 hours night before last during a thunderstorm. I had to reset the...

    Much like another thread I've got running, I'm going to snap a picture of this stony coral and update it every two weeks. I was looking for an acropora species, and this is the easiest for photographing, so I thought it would be a good choice. This first picture is from six weeks ago (the day I...

    why is it that SW hobbiest feel they need to replicate the entire SW ecosystem in their SW setups, when all they want to do is keep some fuzzy sticks? are all of these ecosystems necessary? are there any other hobbiest that do this? ex: Dart frogs, Rift lake cichlids, amazon basins. what do...

    1.) Buy the Hood from LRN (done) 2.) Buy skilter 400 ( other reasons for this.. relax guys)**1 3.) Buy 50# of Marco Rock - epoxy the rocks with plenty of swim throughs, places for coral and easy to clean around 4.) Fill the tank and fire it off.. let it cycle. 5) begin the build on...

    I wasn't able to get a picture of it. It was too small for my camera to focus on. I drew it to the best of my ability with "Paint". The shape of it is dead on. There are no legs. It kind of moves around the glass in a similar way as a snail. Any suggestions as to what this might be. I'm...

    I got me a cute little clown goby.... He's supposed to be reef safe... Only problem is he keeps resting on one of my corals! He's picked a coral and hangs on it and lays underneath it... I'm worried it will ruin the coral and am asking if this will indeed be the case... See pix below... I moved...

    It appears on the tips of a couple of my acropora corals and looks like a light brown bacterial slime. I have tried redirecting the flow of my pumps and power heads, fearing I was damaging the tissue of one of my corals, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. The other acropora has only...

    New Frags - Live Aquaria - Pics I just received my frag pack from Live Aquaria. All I can say is that they are first class. I got the 10 pack of captive grown corals and asked for some specific corals. They gave me most of what I asked for. Awesome! The packing was great and coral condition was...

    Blast!!!!!!! There all over one coral, and I can find a few on other corals. I thought I had been careful, dipping all corals that come in to my tank, but I should have Q'ed everything. I did setup a Q tank a few months ago, but as soon as a few corals went in it, the tank cracked. My new Q...
