  2. General Reef Discussion
    I got a black sun coral early last week (Tues I believe) and have yet to see it open up. Someone told me that they will only eat when they put their polyps out, which is causing me to start worrying about it starving, since I know they don't produce any of their own food from light. How long...

    I saw some frags of sun corals the other day at the LFS and I just think they're beautiful. Does anyone have any pics?- what can you tell me about how to keep them? - i.e. compatibility, flow/lighting, feeding, etc.????
  6. Reef Build-Off 2007
    Dang it I missed the rebuild off by five days! I am stuck in the vet hospital most days and can't check this board all the time and this time it cost me. Oh well. I'm still going to have a rebuild thread going, but I won't be included in the contest. I'm always a day late and a dollar short. I...

    Due to my girlfriend and I breaking up, I am having to sell my 75g reef tank. I have decided to move and will no longer be able to care for it. I haven't taken care of it for the past 5 or 6 weeks due to being out of town and dealing with this mess. I would love to sell the whole thing for $650...

  10. General Reef Discussion
    I have a question (kinda like how long does it take water to boil or for grass to grow, I know). In your experience, how long does it take a tiny frag to get to a good size? Months/yrs? If your Ca levels are good, etc. Just wondering. I know it's a question that most probably will not...

    the black insides come stretching out when it gets dark out, and if you look close on the bottom left you'll see a third arm, or whatever, starting to grow. It'll pull the black things down below the level of the rim of the body. Please can anyone help me figure out what it is? It hitchhiked...

    Hello all, I have an orange sun coral that has been doing well for almost a year, but I dont have a proper tank for it anymore. The coral needs to be fed atleast twice a week, preferrably mysis or a mix of frozen foods. I am open to almost any thing F/T (within reason of course), and I will be...
