Woke up and noticed a coral frag had fallen through the night. I reached in to put it back in place and the water was hot!! 88 degrees hot!!!!! The clam was drawn in and others corals were as well. The power went off here for 6 hours night before last during a thunderstorm. I had to reset the...
This all started with a 72 gal fish only bow front. Then we saw all the reef tanks set up at the fish stores and HAD to have one of those too. The first one was a 13 gal with PC's which was quickly followed by a 42 with T5's, which still wasn't big enough so we converted that one into a 180 with...
I've had a blue linkia star for over a year in my tank. He's always done real well since I figured out to really maintain the salinity closely. That was the #1 issue. All of his little white spots went away and he was real healthy. He's always been shy and stayed in the rocks when the lights...

I don't have pics yet, but my blue linkia star ate my pulsing xenias. Is this a first? Has anyone else seen this? I had a new one with about 8 arms and I came home and the star was just finishing it. I later had to go on vacation and found the star sitting on top of my big one. I removed it and...

I am selling my 75 Gallon all glass reef tank that is up and running and has been for two years With no problems, other than right now I do have a small, and I do say small issue of flat worms. It is in great condition. No scratches or blemishes to the tank. The back is painted black for better...

For some reason ALL my turbos seem sick. They have all been sitting in the same position now for almost a week. I have astreas too and they seem to be moving around but the turbos aren't. I have had some alkalinity fluctuations as I adjusted my CA reactor and I had to raise my salinity up a...
