I have had this Wintergreen Candy Cane Coral for about two months now and it used to look like my second link and now it looks like my 1st link... I'm not sure if it is getting picked at by a fish, if it is going through some phase, or if it is just straight up dying but I would like to know...

Well, I've got a 55g tank sitting empty on a stand, but since I've never kept saltwater fish before, I thought I'd invest minimal cash at the outset and see how things go and try out some ideas before I go whole hog and buy the gear for the 55 and do up a sump, etc.
So, I decided to throw my...

I plan to setup a 90 Gallon tank (48”L x 18”W x 24”H) as a reef tank.
It seems like there has been quite a few changes since I was in to...

It's that time again corals growing too fast and need to be trimmed back a bit. Under the knife this time around are:
Brown/green staghorn, yellow cup...
Ive noticed a few people as of late, who are getting into the hobby. And I was just wondering if any newbies, or anyone for that matter has had luck with craigslist? It seems to be VERY cheap, and works out quite well, if in your area.
Example: When I set up my first tank, a 10 gallon nano...
you know those macro algae balls that go into fuge's they look like green dentil floss???
is there anyway i can just plop that in my tank instead of using a fuge?
