    Hello guys, I bought this coral last friday, and the shop didnt know what it was, i think from the info ive been able to gather that it is Solenastrea bournoni, but not too sure. When i bought it, it was all yellow, but over the past day the yellow 'fluffy' exterior has been disappearing...

    This little formation started growing on a piece of live rock that I bought. Not quite sure what it is. It has about 5 different bulbs each on its own stem, all growing out of the same area. I know its not the best quality of picture, but any input on what it might be would be appreciated...

    My friend gave me a small rock with a polyp attached from his established tank. The one has since spread to about 20 polyps around my tank. His tank has been taken over and is concerned, and wants to know the best method to get rid of them. If anyone can identify and has thoughts about...

    I was told months ago by the LFS that this was a kenya tree. But, even though it appears very healthy and extends from its lights out size of about three inches to its lights on size of seven or 8 inches it still looks green. From what I read Kenyas are normally brown. Today when searching for...
