    What is wrong with my Colt? Half looks great but the other Half... Not so great. How would I separate the two halves?

    I did a water change and used a ph buffer and now it's a shriveled up and laid over. Has some flat worms on it but don't think that's the problem. Any ideas?

    I have a colt coral in the center of my tank and it appears to be doing well. Occasionally it will slime, today I noticed it had and I had a dead fish in the slime. Will a colt coral kill fish with it slime? Or is this just a fluke? Please help!!!

    So I woke up this morning to find my colt coral looking like something took a big bite out of its side, I could see its whiteish insides. I let it be until my lunch break. When I walked in the door i got smacked in the face with this nasty smell. The colt coral was all curled up on itself...

    I have had a colt coral for about 1 month. It seems that periodically during the day, it will suddenly go limp. Then, it will sit up and open it's polyps and look good. It doesn't seem to go limp at any particular time. At night it will sometimes open up fully with the lunar lights. No...

    What is a safe distance between a colt coral and frogspawn. Will they interact unfavorably?

    I've had this Colt coral since it was a tiny little knub off a piece of live rock I bought 8 months ago. About two weeks ago I started to find little pieces of colt coral branches in odd areas of my tank. I examined the "parent" colt coral in the picture, but it was health and full at the time...

    Hi everyone, I am new here and need some quick help identifying a recently purchased frag. It was sold to me as a broccoli coral although I quickly decided I don't think that is correct. Since then I've been told colt coral, cauliflower coral, blue acropora, capnella... Any suggestions? I want...

    Hey gang. Started my reef about three months ago and my first piece was colt coral. It seems from the get go he hasn't been happy. I tried him high and in current, mid way with little current, now low with a bit of current and he just doesn't look happy to me. I have a Red Sea with T5...
