    Well i did some research and i came across some one who said he solve his problem of brown jelly with API Furan-2. At this point having lost 8 corals already i'm ready to give it a shot, can't be worst now, iodine have slowed down the pace but it creeps up still. I've never used Furan, any...

    HEY FOLKS! So the stuff that my hammer was emitting had a brown tinge to it. Then today I was turkey-bastering my tank as I was cleaning, and in blowing near the hammer, one of the heads just disintegrated, sending little bits of dead hammer all over my tank. I've managed to clean up the mess...

    Hi everyone! My torch fell off his special rock a day or so ago and I believe he may have gotten a scratch from the substrate or some of the live rock. I've also been moving him around my 90 gallon tank the past few days to find just the right spot. So he's not been in the most consistent...

    Well I added an Torch Coral and large Colt coral a few days ago. Almost instantly I noticed the Torch looked nothing like it did in the LFS. Today I arrived home to brown slime on the top and none of the tips were out. Lifted it out of the tank and gave it the sniff test and whoa did it stink...

    I recently got a nice Torch (LPS right?) and it got bumped at the register of my dealer. Thought nothing of it. The head that got bumped, I believe it was the one that got bumped, I noticed hasn't opened up and today I noticed a hint of brown goo along its crevice or opening, where it should...

    It shrunk up for no reason and 2 of the heads have these weird white things hanging out. They look like they are free floating but they are actually attached by a really really thin stringy perhaps mucous stuff. The mouths are also wide open on those 2 heads. What is going on with it?

    i just got home a bit ago and found my torch like this. The top brand as you see is not out at all and has a nasty film coming out of it. The one behind it is out a little. The other ones are like it usually is at night. The tooth coral looks fine. I just tested the water and as usual its fine...

There's a skeleton of an lps of some sort(the family with hammers and frogspawns, echinosumthinorother something like that?)

    Because I know a few people are interested, I decided not to PM Pastina, but rather started a new post. Here is the question: What are the issues you and others have had with Vivid Aquariums? In a post a few days ago you said you had a bad time with them, but all I and others have been able...

    Oh man oh man. Interesting week for me! I find a colt coral eating nudibranch... and now my Torch Coral is infected with brown jelly disease! I don't know what could be wrong. I'd love to frag off the part... but it seems I can't. Especially in the spot the infection is located at. Ah. I knew...
