    theres so many nice nano tanks on this board :agree: but it had me wondering about the closeness of the corals. i keep reading how to keep a proper distance between corals and dont let them touch other wise they can do harm to each other but then i look at these pics and some tanks are so...

    Anyone else have any issues keeping these things alive or maybe just acclimating them? I have been on a buying spree in the last month largely successful with the exception of the candy cane corals. My record is ZERO out of two in the last 2 weeks. I have purchased them from Marine Depot and to...

    I have a few questions about feeding corals. I have a 30 gallon reef tank, up and running somewhat well since July. I finally got the algae problem taken care of since I added a Taam Seio M1100 and got the water really moving. But.... I've been told by the company that you should only turn off...

    Our blue tang has got the munchies. We found him/her biting on two different candy cane corals in the tank. Been wondering why they had not been opening well the last 1-2 weeks, and Dorey was caught in the act (multiple times) today and yesterday. We got Dorey from another local member ~18...

    Just curious if a sweeper from a candy cane will bother a large euphylia or are they a similar enough family to not harpoon each other? If so I may have some free Candy Cane corals I got when I cleaned out everything scott had left. The candy canes have some pretty long sweepers coming out right...

    I just got a new trumpet coral yesterday, I added it to my 54 gallon reef tank. Everything else is looking great, but my new coral is secreting some white goop. Is this from stress? Is it going to poison the rest of my tank? I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks

    Hello all, I am a new member to this board, although I have been reading it for a few days now. My fiancee and I have a new nano cube (that she received as a b-day present from me) and I believe it is a "deluxe" nano cube. It has two lights (one blue and one off white) and two fans as well...
  11. LPS, (scleractinians with large polyps)
    I have a young (4 months) 40 gallon reef tank with 2x65W PC lights. It has been doing fine with soft coral (green stars, mushrooms, leathers). Can anyone reccommend which LSP corals would be good choices to start with? Or - should the tank mature more before adding LSP's?
  12. Algae ,good and bad
    I am fairly new in this area. So If anyone has any suggestions, Please let me know. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of the green bubble algae in my tank?

    Hey everyone I'm looking to soon start up my nano. I was looking to put lps, sps and softies in it, along with 2 or 3 fish. It's gonna be a 20 gallon long with a HOB filter. I purchased a book called corals from the lfs, and was wondering if I should stay away from lps due to their size, or...

    picked up a great frag from Steve Skaggs (Thanks) and it immediately took to the tank for over two weeks. Fully extended by about 3". Now its all kinda shriveled (sp?) and only extended about 1/4". Everything else looks great and growing like mad. Did a 10% H2O change (which I don't like to...

    I have this rather huge monti cap, and as I begin to take apart the tank, it has attached to several large rocks, Thus it gets fragged! It is dijon mustard colored, with a brilliant purple rim. I know Trung gets a frag, anyone else want some? here is a pic

    I think that new candy cane coral that I bought last week has gotten a new head, but am not for sure. It's smaller than the other heads ........... Does anyone have a pic of a new head?

    Hey All..... I don't believe I've ever read this or seen in the archives, so excuse me if I missed it somewhere. My Emerald Crab was recommended to me by my LFS when I added my Tang and Clowns. I had made mention about the enormous amount of bubble algae that I had growing in the tank and...
