    Hi all long time reader first time poster. So I came back from the food store today to see 5 or 6 of these clear whitish things on the glass.. they move from the fat end with two legging things behind it.. kind of move semi fast too.. like faster then a snail but slower than let's say brine...

    The other day I was in a rush to mix up some saltwater for a water change and I ended up dumping a bunch of salt into the water all at once which apparently (from what I have :read: about the subject on this forum and some others) caused the calcium in the water to precipitate and cover the...

    Hi All, Hoping to get some help with a problem which I am experiencing a second time. I've found what appears to be a clear worm (spoinid?) covered in sand that burrows into the heads of the frogspawn completely killing the branch it infects. The 1st one was kind of small and killed 1 branch...

    Can someone help ID this and how to get rid of it please? If I scrub it off the live rock it grows back. When I do water changes and clean substrate, it grows back. My LFS says that its dying algae but dying algae doesn't grow. Idk if it's good or bad. The sprout in the substrate is rooted...

    Ok, so I had this happen with my candy cane as well, just curious what it is. My hammer pulls all of its "hammers" in tight and opens it's mouth, then this clear stringy stuff comes out and waves around. What is this? Everything I've read said their poop was brown. This is clear, you can only...

    Sorry, I know a picture would be preferred, but my critter is impossible to photograph. I have only seen it maybe 3 times. It is thread like and inches over my rocks. It is clear and smooth and appears to have a head. I would say an inch long and only a millimeter wide. It is free moving but...

    hi TRF! I got this caulerpa prolifera(i think) from my LFS about 2 weeks ago and lately its been turning into this white/clearish appearance. I thought it wasn't getting enough light or nutrients so after doing some research I found out that it might be going 'sexual'. Has this ever been a...

    Hey everyone, I started a 90 gallon tank about two months ago. I have a couple pieces of live rock cycling trying to start a reef tank. I've already seen algae and copepods and everything is running smoothly but the past week I have seen these tubules on the live rock growing. They have a clear...

  12. General Reef Discussion
    My tank is fairly new and in the last week or so I've had an explosion of these clear or white slightly curved tubes growing on my live rock, mostly on underside of the rock and mostly on one particular rock. I've searched around for a good while now and can't find an exact match on...
  13. Skimmers & other filtration
    With xmas on its way it's the best time to get some new equipment for my tank, and I'm looking to upgrade my filter. I've been comparing some prices and found the "Aqua medic turboflotor" protein skimmer for around $140 and it looks promising. Has anyone had any experience with this brand or...

    As I look at numerous pictures of different tanks, I see crystal clear water. So crisp, and clean - as if the entire content of a tank was placed into freshly distilled water. I look at pictures of the ocean and from experience in it I see particulate matter afloat. Interestingly enough, this...

    How do I get rid of these micro bubbles in my tank? They make my water look dirty when its not?

    Hey guys sorry to bug again. I was just wondering ive had a raw shrimp in my tank for about 4 days now and its developed a clear sack around it, and i was wondering if thats how it was supposed to be and what it was

    I just noticed these really tiny white/clear worm looking things crawling on the glass..they look like those really tiny spiders you find outside that are like the size of a speck of dirt..does anyone know what these are and are they bad? Is there anything I can do to get rid of them? I was...

    I have three things that I need help with! Something that resembles a pink feather duster and a 3 layer cake, a completely see through shrimp with LONG "arms" :) and some weird sea cucumbers or something. They have little antennas and when they move, they have like four flaps that move on their...

Seems to only grow on the bottom side of my live rocks.... have searched for an answer and i cant find anything similar.. someone please identify this for me...

    Hey is there any difference between a tank sealed with black silicone and a tank sealed with clear silicone? I saw a ten gallon tank for sale sealed with black silicone at a LFS and it was about twice as much as a ten gallon tank sealed with clear silicone from petco. (It was around $35)
