  1. General Reef Discussion
    hello everyone... I just ordered 10 Berghia Nudibranch (BN) and here is my question for you. would it make sense to take my live rock out of my tank and put it in a 30 gallon bucket and let the "BN" chomp away in the bin? I also have a filefish in my tank i read they eat those "BN". I have...

    I have a bit of an Aiptasia problem in my tank. I decided to try the Filefish method. I introduced him today. I’ll report back with its progress. Dave

    Hi all, I'm returning to the hobby soon with a 17 gallon nano reef. I have a couple of questions. 1. If I have a protein skimmer and a refugium, do I need a mechanical filter? 2. My friend is giving me back a beautiful live rock I gave to him when I broke down my last tank. He has had...

    Hello TRT A few months ago, about 4 months, i started my own 20 gallon reef tank. After all water parameters were good after about two months, I started adding fish(i did not quarantine the damsels only acclimated) to it. I've done 10% water changes weekly. I have 2 powerheads, protein skimmer...

    Turns out that I have an aiptasia problem. I bought a new piece of LR the other day, and it's infested with aiptasia, and also some bubble algae. The rock itself also had algae all over it, but by CUC are devouring it, impressively. In a few weeks that rock will be white like the others...

    Hi All, Just found this little thing on my glass. I searched around the net but couldn't be 100% sure if these are the clear hydroids that many say will go away on its own, or the more harmful pests that I should get rid of immediately. it didn't look like feather dusters and the tentacles...
  9. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Hello All I'm new to the forum thing and also new to the Reef Hobby. I noticed these little glowing things on some new LR I got from my LFS. I have already blasted some Aiptasia with AiptasiaX that hitchhiked their way into my tank and these were not harmed even being in the blast radius of the...

    I recently got a peppermint shrimp for aiptasia control. After going out for dinner, this is what I saw a mere three hours after adding it to the tank. Anyone else seen this happen?

    Hello TRT, I have a outbreak of aiptasia and need to do a water change. I usually filter the first hour or so of vacuuming through a filter sock to get all I can out of the sand bed before changing 40 gallons. Then I continue to vacuum for the 40 gallon change. My question is are...

    Found this little thing in the corner of my LR... theres multiple, and I cant seem to figure out what they are. hopefully they aren't aiptasia or majano...
  14. Anemones
    Hey, (I'm baaaack!) I recently discovered a little anemone looking creature in a little crevice of my Lr! it resembles a small pest, but I need someone to ID it for me! I'm not sure if its pest or not, (and just got 3 pep shrimp in case). Here's a pic!
  15. "Soft" corals
    Hi All, It seems like I've got something growing off of the base of my leather, but I can't tell what it is. It doesn't look quite like aiptasia (not translucent or fleshy enough), but it also doesn't look like the leather it's growing off of. We had a pulsing xenia some months back that died...

    Finally no longer have any aiptasia thanks to my new laser :) I used kalk to kill everything I could but I had some big suckers that I could not get at without moving 3/4 of my rock work. I ordered a 2000mw 2watt laser focused the beam and the sound of milk hitting a bowl of rice crispies was...

    I put this in my tank thread but thought it might be worth putting in its own thread. A coworker or mine is going to give me live rock from his sump. The problem is he has aiptasia in his main tank. He says there isn’t any in the sump that he has seen. After reading on here about aiptasia I...

    These are starting to pop up in my reef tank. Can anyone tell me if they are Aiptasia? and if so, is Aiptasia X the best way to get rid of them?
  20. General Reef Discussion
    So i had aiptasia a while back but used the good old X to kill the stuff. I hadn't noticed any since doing that. But last night i was moving rocks around and picked up one of my shells to find this on it. Is this aiptasia? Mine before were like a ghost see through color and this one is very...
