    With my recently upgraded 90g reef tank I noticed that the skeleton on my birdsnest is bleaching although the polyps look just fine. I turned down the light and checked parameters and noticed that they were pretty low. Lights are 120w dimmable Taotronics. 0ppm ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate...

    My birdsnest looked like this so I moved it to the bottom of the tank is this a good move or too low it was at the top of the tank before

    My birdsnest is starting to grow purple polyps with the new growth, but the old ones are staying green. Is this something I should be worried about? Also, I forgot what type of bn this is... if anyone knows I would appreciate an ID. Thanks!

    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...

    Just looking for a little advice here. My tanks have been mostly softies and a few LPS up until now, so I am just beginning to venture into the wide world of SPS. Please follow the "My Tanks" link in my sig for tank info if you need it. This is the 90 gal. Params SG: 1.024 Temp: 79 Nitrate: 0...

    Hey, I have a pink birdsnest that is growing great, but a few branches on the bottom side don't seem like they are getting enough light. Should I go ahead and trim/frag the lower branches? I figured I would frag them and put them on frag plugs. I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't hurt...

    Yesterday I picked up a few new corals. Can you just confirm that this is a lobo? That's what it was labeled but it doesn't quite look like what I've found on lobos. And can anyone ID this? I think it is some sort of macro algae. It is a little redder than the picture shows. Possibly red...

    I have a Birdsnest coral that had been doing ok until about a month ago, when I had a cyano algae outbreak. I still am trying to deal with the cyano, but it has started growing on my birdsnest in places, and the coral is beginning to look very pale. Is there a way to get the algae off the...

    Just a quick question about sps placement. I have some nice birdsnest that started out as small frags a few months ago and have grown like crazy. I also started three different colors of cap coral on another rock not far from the birdsnest, again they are growing great. My question is, are they...

    Hi im new to the forum and had a question about my birdsnest coral(Seriatopora caliendrum). So when i got it, it was a small frag and without glueing it i placed it at the bottom of my 150 Gallon cylinder aquarium with the bottom of the coral under a few small live rocks. In a month or two i...

    OK, So i just ventured over to the sps side and got two moderately easy sps corals, ORA red montipora cap, and ORA pink birds nest. Anyways, I am only familiar with the lps, and the easy to tell closed up=not happy, and expanded=happy, way of determining the health of the corals. Now, with...

    I currently upgraded my lighting to add a reefbrite actinic strip. i picked up a decent sized frag of birdsnest coralat the same time because it was only 5$ for a 6 inch frag and had good colouration and poly extension. The coral has bleached quite a bit since adding it to my tank with the new...

    On the front page of http://reefledlights.com there is a gorgeous birdsnest. The graphic changes, but I believe it is on the first set of pics, on the right side. It looks like a teal-ish base which goes to purple, then to pinkish tips... If anyone has a legit ID, that'd be sweeeet!
