  2. "Soft" corals
    The polyps in the middle of my green button colony are turning white in the center of the polyp. Is this bleaching? The polyps on the edges of the colony look great. It's only the center polyps. I would assume that water quality would affect the whole colony. Could it be a lighting issue? I have...

  5. "Soft" corals
    I had a small red algal bloom in my 55gal long tank, after adding a few fish 5 (blue damsels which died due to temp shock or amonia possibly), GSP, and Kenya. After a 10-15% water change the ammonia is back to 0.25, the red algae is subsiding and the moon snails are cleaning up. I see some red...
  6. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    These guys have been my first coral in my tank 8 months ago and they have been getting worse and worse. My LFS didn't even know what was going on, so I was wondering some on TRT would know. http://i1265.photobucket.com/albums/jj508/Puffo98/IMG_0479.jpg...

  9. "Soft" corals
    I've had this green button that hitchhiked on a piece of live rock - been on there for a couple years now. Will a single button reproduce the same way a zoa does? Do I just need to stick it out and wait for more heads to appear? Thanks!

    One of my button polyps is behaving really strangely. It has sort of folded itself over and there is now a brown line stretching along the head through the mouth and then across the other side. It is still responsive and it still looks in good health. This is the only one doing so of the whole...
  11. "Soft" corals
    I know that soft corals will wage chemical warfare on hard corals, but what about xenia vs button polyps? They're about 1/2" away from a territory dispute in our tank. Are they releasing toxins now/ do we need to do anything - extra skimming/filtering/water changes? or does one just out-grow...

    At my local rock pools where I frequent for relaxation after work, there used to be alot of zoo, button and mushroom colonies. Within the last 4 months these have dwindled down to one large zoo colony about basketball size and one large button polyp colony of similar size. This is mostly due...

    If anyone knows what this thing is, it would be greatly appreciated. When we purchased this piece of live rock it had Xenia and mushrooms on it. Then these things appeared, and at first we thought it was Aptasia and killed two of them. But I convinced my husband as this one got bigger that it...
