    Can someone help me ID this? We have recently added some snails but did not add water from store to tank. I think it must have come in off the live Rock or Sand. Kids where telling me there was a caterpillar in tank and I did not believe them until the Wife just sent me these pics.

    Hello! I bought this frag from my lfs two months ago. Today I added some coral supplements and saw an arm reaching out of a hole in the frag. See picture, the arm is red and seems like a bristle worm. Any idea what it can be and is it bad? If so, how do I get rid of it? Thanks in advance for...

    A hitchhiker already? I knew at some point I could possibly see something but I figured it would be so tiny it would take weeks to grow and show up in my tank where I can see it with my bare eyes. I can't tell you how much time I spend staring at the sand with my LED flashlight imagining little...

    I got some gulf live rock and something crawled out of it yesterday that I can't identify. It was crawling up the glass and had a foot like a snail but no shell. His body was oval shaped, orange with small black spots and he was about the size of a pencil eraser. Any ideas?

    My tank has been up and running for about 6 months now. I have a 29 biocube and recently upgraded to the intank media baskets in chamber 2. I did not realize how fast the filter floss gets dirty and I believe that is how I got my red slime outbreak. My lfs suggested refresh by dr aquatics and it...

    HI all, I have seen this little bug crawling around on my glass for about 2 weeks now. He is yellow on top, white underneath and has 1 pair of antennae(?). Was about 3mm long when first seen and is now about 8-10mm long. He seems to stay on the glass. Any ideas what he is?

    This is what came up in the middle of the Toadstool Leather last night. At first, it was whiter and the leather didn’t have the stars out. This morning it was much darker and the leather looked like this. Any idea what it is? Does this thing release spores to propogate? We have never...

    Howdy from Melbourne, Australia! This is my first post and I'm here on behalf of my mum. She has 2 tanks now, one with 2 seahorses and a little purple/yellow fish. Another tank has 3 bits of live rock & a damsel fish (sp?) to make sure the water is safe. Anyway, I was sussing out the "live...

    Hi there, I started my reef tank up about 3 months ago, and recently spotted this little thing on my live rock. I have no idea what it is... can someone help me to identify what it is (and if it's a good thing or not?) It's about 1 cm in length and as you can see from the image, looks like...

    When I set up my tank years ago I had my first brush with bristle worms. Naturally, I freaked and asked all my aquarist friends what these pink things were and they set me straight. Over the years my tank has been at my old roommate's place and he's been helping take care of it. A couple weeks...
