    I recently bought a rather large size rock from my lfs which had an assortment of coral on them (a few button polyps and some gsp). It so happened to come with a little hitchhiker crab that ate away at some of my gsp matting (which im still trying to catch btw) but to make a short story long...

    I started in the hobby back when you could by dead, but real, colorful corals to put in your tank. I'm not crazy about the live rock look. Reminds me more of the Jersey shore than a tropical reef. So, I was wondering, can I keep button polyps in my tank which has a variety of angels (Emperor...

    Hey everyone. My button polyps have not been looking so hot for a week or so. They used to open really well and lately they have been staying shut. I've also noticed them turning almost white in the center and around the edges. I don't think light is the problem as they have been in the tank...

    So, in spite of my elevated nitrates and issues getting my new protein skimmer broken in, these guys are doing well. Actually, today my green stars on the left have begun opening again. I have each type of coral on its own separate rock but, as you can see, the buttons in the middle are pretty...

    So, a few months ago I gave my cousin a piece of live rock with some green button polyps for his tank. Today his local lfs associate told him that these are very highly toxic and he shouldn't have them?! I've never heard such....any thoughts?

    I purchased my first corals on April 1st and they have been doing pretty good. I've had three green mushrooms split on their own and another one is in the process of splitting. My zoanthids were wilted for a little while but they have sprung back, and I've seen four or five new heads. I believe...

    My tank is about two months old. One of my first rocks had a clump of button polyps. They were very dark brown in the beginning but they are getting very light and almost translucent. They are all open but I am not sure if this is an issue with the light? My tank test out good. My lights are not...

    When I bought my button polyps they were very green in the middle with orange tentacles. About a couple days ago I noticed that they have lost the green color in the middle. I moved them up to be closer to the light but I still have not seen a difference. Any idea what this could be? I have...
