    Last week, my wife and I bought our first three corals pictured below. They are in a 29g tank with a Banggai cardinalfish (that was bought the same day) and two clownfish that we've had for a while. No sump, no skimmer, no GFO, Orbit IC LED lights (currently on daylight for eight hours at 30%...

    I bought this coral a couple weeks ago and noticed a white-ish ring around the inside and on the underside. Not sure how well you could see from the pic but I'm just hopeful that it is healthy or at least will be... First brain (heard it) so any help is appreciated.

    Hello. Yesterday I bought an open brain coral at my local fish store. I came home and I noticed that it had a small area which was not covered in flesh (dead spot?) as seen in the picture (top middle of the coral). When I saw him at the fish store, the brain coral was inflated and puffed which...

    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

    So my rescued brain coral looks like it is splitting! It has two mouths, and is perfectly healthy. Each mouth eats on its own, and seems relatively independent from the other. History: I got this coral in terrible condition (Ripped flesh, receding skeleton) a month ago and have carefully...

    I just got a call from my brother in law that he has a HUGE brain coral that is getting picked on. He's had it for years, and it's ablut 6'x 6'. It's green and pink, but apparently it's half dead and he says I can have it if I think I can save it! My plan is to add the proportionate amount of...

    I just got this coral and im not sure the species, can anyone identify it for me? Also, will it be able to spread on my live rock?

    Hope this is in the correct section, totally new to this stuff but I'm learning. I have what I think is an "open" brain coral. Maybe trachyphyllia, is that correct? Anyway, when I bought this tank setup it was very contracted and really no larger than your lips. Got it home and within a few...

    I've had this coral for over a year, and was told when I bought it that it was a brain coral, but I'm not completely convinced. Some Aussie Doughnut Corals look very similar to me when I look them up on google, and I feel like if it was a brain coral it would have split into more heads by now...

    So I went to go feed my fish and noticed these tentacles coming out of my brain coral, I've had it for about 2-3 months now and wasn't like this when I bought it. My anemone which you can see the foot of in the photo, did lose a few tentacles from being stuck in the filter previously and was...

    Anyone have any suggestions as to why my brain coral is pulling away from the skeleton in this one spot and how I would go about fixing it? Coral looks fine otherwise and eats fairly well.

    Last Friday night I dropped the brain in the pic......and it appears to have a small cut / abrasion where my RED arrow is pointing. Ever since the injury it shriveled-up and has stayed shriveled. So as I type this on Monday night, its been 3 days. I'm NOT seeing any dying flesh (I've seen...

    So I got this piece of rock with about 5 small hairy mushrooms on it and I'm not sure if there healthy or where I'm suppose to put them. The lfs had them in a dark tank and there's a couple that are white and about 4 that are brown with green tips. I'll post a pic of them. Just need your input...
