    I have a brand new (but it's been opened), complete Red Sea Max 250C hood, that I want to sell, but I'm not sure how much to charge for it. Is $500.00 too much? I've googled how much they sell for, but no one sells just the hood that I know of. Thanks

    Hey TRT, I have these black spots showing up on my live rock (both in my 120 and in a little nano that my son has started up). It's hard (not spongy) and appears to be black (or a very, very dark purple). You can see it's on both the cured fiji LA live rock and the purple coralline encrusted...

  13. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    Hello! I'm in need of some assistance here.. I'm fairly new to marine tanks, but am learning quickly. My current issue is a corner of my tank, the live sand is black on top - nothing below the surface of the sand... I thought maybe it was due to poor circulation so I added a power head to move...

    My Checkerboard Wrasse has a black spot on his tail, sorry the picture is so grainy, had to use a high ISO to get enough light. What is it? Is it bad? (It probably is). =(

  19. SPS Coral Forum
    I recently purchased a yellow cup coral. The polyps are in nice shape but on the back (the smooth part), there are 2 black sections. They are black crevices (so not topical). 1. Is that a disease or a sting from anemones or ?? 2. What do I need to do about it? Thanks!
