candy cane corals

  1. General Reef Discussion
    I just added candy cane, frogspawn and tube coral to my tank.... Does anyone have experience with the tube coral? All I have read says moderate current and low light - I am planning to feed cyclops - do I need to spoon feed it? My livestock currently includes 17 corals and 3 fish. I have the...

    Ok I bought these two frags a few weeks back. I was in the lfs and could not resist them, so I spent $30. I placed the two frags next to eachother. They are lavender in color, but the lfs called them pink. They open up slightly. Will they open all the way up? I got a front and a side view...

    Well, I think its the last day of my reefkeeping adventure. :( Its been fun! However, I'm moving, and need to get rid of all my stuff, and with that, I guess I have lost my spark of interest, maybe for good. I took all my live stuff over to Ocean Devotion today, and all that's left is a dry...
  8. Reef Build-Off 2007
    Dang it I missed the rebuild off by five days! I am stuck in the vet hospital most days and can't check this board all the time and this time it cost me. Oh well. I'm still going to have a rebuild thread going, but I won't be included in the contest. I'm always a day late and a dollar short. I...

    Cool!!! I got up and looked in the tank and something wasn't right, well aside from the hair algae and icky brown that is forever on my sand... I grabbed the camera but just couldn't succeed with a great shot today, but you get the gist. Please post your sweeper pics here!!!

    Hi Everyone I've been saving my money and it's time for another coral shopping event! Why do I call it an event? Well because my best friend comes down from Albany and we spend the day going from store to store picking corals we like. I have a 150 gallon tank with a 50 gallon sump. I have 2...
  11. Eau Claire Reef Club (ECRC)
    earlier in the summer we had something go wrong in the tank, and it started to wipe out all the corals. I lost all the hairy mushrooms first, which was so strange since they had been so easy to grow and dominated the tank. Then I lost all the ricarodia,zoos, and all my blue mushrooms.I loved the...

    I do not like candy cane corals, nor many other hard corals like that. So theyre for trade in my area. I like anything thats "flowy", and anything that'll associate with my Clowns or algae eaters. I just dont like this POS taking up space in my tank! lol. LMK if anyone is interested..

    Well my tank is a sad looking thing compared to most of your tanks, and definitely not as "mature", but I thought I'd bite the bullet and get some pictures posted while I had a few minutes. I started out in Jan/06 with a 29g and moved to the 55g late Mar/06 when Reefneck moved from the 55g to...

    Hi everyone, Good thing: my BTA is doing so well since sump added that it's HUGE Bad thing: it actually reached a new part of the tank by opening up so large that it stung the heck out of my beautiful huge bunch of candy cane corals. Question: are they goners? They look horrible right...
  15. Seahorses & Pipefish
    can anyone give me some helpful info on sea horses? i would like to have one in my 30gal. tank with my true perc. clownfish.
  16. LPS Coral Forum
    So i wanted to get some input from others on candy cane corals. Most LPS have tended to be lower light corals. i have not had much luck with them under the MH i use on my main tank. The odd one out seems to be candy canes which have thrived under the high light and pristine water and died under...

    So I primarily use Emperor or Penguin products for "maintaining" my aquariums. They used to be good at getting rid of ammonia and nitrites in a tank. However over the last week or so I had both manifolds crack on my emperor 400's. Both went out at the same time (rather odd I think). Next of all...

    Can you help Mr. Lobo? + pics from this morning I bought this Lobo yesterday in hopes of nursing it back to health. Very ambitious since I'm new to this hobby but it spoke to me :agree: and I couldn't refuse. (of course it was at a drastically reduced price). Attached are pictures but here's...
  19. Atlanta Reef Club
    Over the past ~5 years, I have had a couple different setups, but they have all shared some elements (rock, coral, or livestock) between them. In that time, I have had a yellow tang, a powder blue, a kole tang, and most recently a scopus. All have begun fine. Eating the seaweed (sheet stuff)...

    I have a question (kinda like how long does it take water to boil or for grass to grow, I know). In your experience, how long does it take a tiny frag to get to a good size? Months/yrs? If your Ca levels are good, etc. Just wondering. I know it's a question that most probably will not...
