    So I purchased a slightly bleached BTA (LFS said it was from shipping) on Saturday. Day one was great, he looked lovely and bubbled up. Day. 2 he moved a few inches and slightly deflated but still seemed happy. Came home and he was really deflated, and almost completely in the rock. Decided to...

    Why is this dude kinda white? It was like this when I got it last week. Do you think it's naturally this color, it's on the bottom of the tank, I got 4 t5s and a 75 gallon

    Hi all! I'm fairly new to the reef thing and I was recently told my anemone is bleached. He came like this from my LFS. My tank is about 6 months old and I've had the anemone for about 3 weeks. Other than the bleaching I'd like your opinion(s) on his overall appearance. His tentacles are...

    Hey everyone, I have a Torch that I had placed up too high in the tank. Without noticing it, it got really bleached. now in only has a hint of purple in it. I have had it on the sand for a month or so but I can't seem to get anymore color back in it. Any advice on this? Thanks, Dylan

    This guy was mislabeled as a condylactis anemone so my mom brought him home for $10... My problem with this purchase (besides the Petco part) is that I believe it is bleached... VERY small... And we don't have the lights for it. Let the battle begin.

    I bought an acropora and wasn't aware that there weren't white ones unless they were bleached. So yea it's literally pure white with bare amount of tissue and turnings green from the inside around the base. I've tipped it upwards so whatever amount of zooxanthellae there's left gets exposed to...

    Hey guys, I just landed this little acro from my LFS for like 3 bucks! Any idea what it might be? It's kinda hard for me to tell With it being bleached out n all. It seems to be pretty healthy though. All the polyps came out while it was in its bag acclimating.

    Ok so I did get a nem. And mistakingly also bought a bleached one in the effort of saving it.

It has...

    I just bought this brain from the LFS a few days ago. I thought it looked awesome but after further reading I am concerned that it may be bleached instead of just really cool. It is white with neon yellowish green striations throughout, no white areas without the striations. I have not been able...

    I checked my perimeters. Nitrate : about 0 ammonium : 0 calcium : 450 PH : 8.2 My salinity was a bit out of wack @ about .30 but I have begun to lower that. Could my salinity levels be the issue?? I had a quick spell with red slime early last week but I believe I caught it pretty fast so...
