brown polyps

  1. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    I'm going through what I think many have gone through...lightening corals to white, but still alive with white polyps...I feed like crazy and it is removed quickly...then about two days later I get an algae bloom, so a clean up...but the corals are still not any better. I have dialed back...
  2. The THINK Tank
    I haven't a clue as to what has happened to three frags, actually one is a colony, acro species. The corals shed, like an RTN, two are white, like bleaching the other (colony) appears a light green. Camera is broken or I'd take a pic, sorry. Anyway, the polyps are still there, also white...

  4. Reef Build-Off 2007
    well, found this one day before the close... :blob::blob::blob: the tank is a 55g truvu acrylic, built in overflow. It is currently sitting on a stand for a 135g and the plumbing was done to just get it up and running. Now I plan on styling it out as best I can for a focus on anemones and...
  5. Reef Build-Off 2007
    I think I’ll play along with the build-off as well. I have ordered a custom Oceanic tank, and while I’m currently waiting for it (and wondering if it will ever show up), I have been keeping busy with my current set-up and planning for the new one. If you look at my few other posts on this board...

    Well, it was that time of year again to replace the bulbs. The system is a 6' Hamilton Technologies hood running 3 175w SE bulbs and two VHO's. I had run Ushio 10k in the past, but last year used Aqualine 10k. Between the two, there seemed to be very little differance in growth of my softy tank...

    Odd title, but there's something else at the LRS that has caught my eye. There's a skeleton of an lps of some sort(the family with hammers and frogspawns, echinosumthinorother something like that?) It's got these little bumps on it that the guy there said were "probably" corallimorphs of some...

    I am having a really tough internal dilemma and I need you guys to help me figure it out. In a nutshell, I am trying to figure out how to make this hobby dominate my life less. I feel like I am a slave to my fish/reef tanks. I enjoy them immensely and cant imagine giving them up totally but they...

    Hello folks, this is also listed on the club's website. I usually frag these for free, but i am trying to be completely rid of corals in the tank which means giving away some decent sized pieces of LR, so I would simply like an equal amount of LR in return (roughly) and you get free corals...

    Ive noticed a few people as of late, who are getting into the hobby. And I was just wondering if any newbies, or anyone for that matter has had luck with craigslist? It seems to be VERY cheap, and works out quite well, if in your area. Example: When I set up my first tank, a 10 gallon nano...

    Ok, So.. they came with the tank, otherwise I might not have had them in the first place. I got brown polyps and mushrooms taking over my tank. The mushrooms are pretty and I wouldn't mind keeping a few but the polyps are all over my tank. What do you recommend, maybe taking the rocks out and...

    This is the Blue Encrusting Monti. I liked it better when all the brown polyps were closed. There's so much polyp extension that it looks like a fuzzy dog!!

    Hey folks, really I'm looking to sell my whole set-up, but since that rarely works out around here I thought I'd try to split the livestock and equipment up (but PM me if interested in the whole thing). What I'd like to do is sell all, or substantially all, of my livestock / rock to someone...
