There also algae growing on the tanks walls everyday. I have a 46 gallon tank with 60 pounds of live rock, and 60 pounds...

    Any idea to why my Montipora is brown in the center? It was like that a month ago when I bought it (Cheap!), but I thought it would be better by now. What is browning caused by? I don't believe I have any pests, so could it be excessive/inadequate lighting? It is extended, but I am still...

    My tank (29g biocube) has been established for almost 7 weeks now. It cycled in about 2.5 weeks and I haven't had any issues with algae since then until about 10 days ago. My glass has to be cleaned daily because it gets caked in green algae and my sand bed looks awful as its covered in brown...

    Alright everyone, as my sig says I have a Current Orbit Marine LED which I'm learning isn't the greatest for corals but should be fine for Zoas. I bought one frag almost two months ago and I think they are Eagle Eyes and they have been reproducing, but look a bit brown still. The rest I picked...

    Hello guys! Just curious as to what this might be growing on my glass? Obviously it's another menacing algae growth. It's not hair algae. It appears to have a membrane in certain spots if you look closely. It's brown and it's nasty. It grows incredibly quick. The picture I took is literally two...

    Hey gang, I started getting some slimy and stringy algae with a bubble at the end and my wife and I came upon dinoflagellates. We've read a lot from other sites and I figured I'd ask here to expand on what we've seen elsewhere...your advice/knowledge/experience shared would be appreciated.

    I've notice a small brown spot on one of my dry rocks and I have been adding ammonia for about 5 days now. It looks like some sort of decay because it either are away a hole or is growing around a hole. It's been getting larger since I first noticed it. I'm not sure what this is so anybody have...

    About 10 days ago I purchased a nice plate coral which was doing fine in my tank until yesterday when I noticed that it was beginning to turn brown. This morning I can see that parts of the skeleton are now visible. I am using the normal RSM salt as I had high mag problems using the RSM Coral...

    Its been a long, harrowing, and ongoing journey through brown jelly disease (BJD) on my beloved hammer. I had a bit of trouble learning about BJD and hammers, so I thought I'd add to the pool of knowledge with my story. I'll tell it chronologically. I got the hammer from my LFS in early...

    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...
