  1. "Soft" corals
    So I just picked up a chili coral from the lfs 2 days ago. I noticed during the day that it kinda droops down and collapses. At night however it stands up straight and fully opens all its polyps(from what I've read this seems normal). So my question is would it be better to put this guy in a...

    I recently added a chili coral (Nephthyigorgia sp) in my tank and placed in a shaded area. It seems to be doing well at night when all lights are turned off, extending its polyps and growing much bigger. However, during daytime, it shrinks a lot with all polyps closed off. I thought it would be...

    I spent most of the day working on my 75 gallon reef tank and then started taking pictures. I tried some things that were new for me, and learned a couple of lessons from them in the process. I am planning on adding a whole bunch of pictures to this thread so it will not be very friendly to...

    Well, I'm new here. I just left a forum for mothers of preschoolers.:eek: Yeah, THAT. Anyway, I need some different kind of adult interaction. And with less drama.

    Hi ho - I have a chili coral that seems to be the only unhappy resident in my tank. I put it in 3 weeks ago - it was small, but happy and opening at the LFS. I located it in a small grotto in my rocks to shield it from too much light and at first, it seemed happy - even opening for a few...

    I finally got around to working on a project I had wanted to do for quite a while. I bought enough supplies to create a set of Fly Guy style acrylic rock lifts for my 75 reef and my wife's 29 seahorse tank. Here are pictures of the progress and the results for the seahorse tank. Since this...

    I just wanted to drop a note on some Gonipora that I have. I had a great colony growing and taking over a nice piece of rock. Suddenly I noticed that it was not extending its polyps fully and I started to do some in depth reasearch. I found that they are hard to keep in captivity for long, I...

  18. "Soft" corals
    Let me start this off with a picture and then my question. The picture was taken early in the morning, about 3 hours before any lights will come on, using the flash. You can see the polyp extension on the Chili coral, so I am not too worried about that. It has been growing in the shadow...

    When I did my aquascaping I left plenty of room in front, behind and above the rock work to leave plenty of room for growth. The big spaces in the middle were bugging me though. Then I realized I have a dremel, some extra power head magnets and some rock I wasn't using...
