    I have a beautiful colt finger coral. It has grown tremendously over the past 8 months into a tree with lots of limbs. However, over the past two days it has not opened up after the lights come on. It has stayed in the shrunken, sleep state. If anyone can give me some idea of what to do I...

    I have nice colt, finger coral. Until recently it has stood up very well and just looked pretty happy. However, in the past few days I have noticed that it wants to lean over more than stand straight. I have had this piece for about 6 months and it is now about three times the size it was when I...

Will a colt hurt oral harm or sting a toadstool if it's Farley close together? If it does what would be another good choice to go on this...

    Hi everyone. I ended up buying a beautiful colt coral frag form my LFS yesterday. I couldn't resist, it was only $5 :). I acclimated it for two hours yesterday using the slow drip method and really took my time with adding it into the tank. He shriveled up during the acclimation and this...

    Any DIY ideas from something i can build for my DT that i can keep my corals in so the fish cannot annoy them. I currently have the corals in something similar to the Cope-Pod using gutter guard, but the longnose butterfly seems to have taken a liking to my Colt frag inside the little cage. I...

    I can't explain this. I have 20 corals in my 220 gal reef. I have colts, devil's hand, gonioporas, etc. No sps, just softies and lps. The first one I bought was open and beautiful in the store I shop at. Placed it in my tank, far away from anyone else, and it completely shrunk up and stays...

    Hey gang. My first tank piece was a piece of Colt Coral because it was the easiest to keep in my RSM250. It was attached to a rock that had and has green and some black fuzzy lookin algae stuff. I tore what I could off thinking this was doing something and it looks like it grows back. My...

    I purchased a piece of lr with two pieces of colt coral on it, one of them almost 3 inches long, the moment the lfs removed it from the tank it pulled itself in, it is now in my tank and has yet to come back into 'bloom'. Will it come back out?
  14. General Reef Discussion
    So i have read and researched a bit about fragging my colt. I have decided on drilling a small hole in my frag plug, inserting and gluing a plastic toothpick to the plug, then fragging the colt, sliding the frag onto the toothpick, gluing the top of the frag so it doesn't slide off the...

    Hey everyone, from past 2 weeks or so i have noticed my colt coral isnt doing too well. My water levels are just fine. Today, i noticed something unusual on the side. Its like my coral is being eaten or something. On its right side it has a hole, like its being ripped by something, and then i...
  16. "Soft" corals
    Hey folks, I just did my first fragging about 2 weeks ago and am very excited as everyone is doing great. The only issue I am having is that the LFS won't take them if they aren't mounted. I have them on some rubble rock and I figured that if they didn't move they would attach to the rubble...
