I just purchased a green cup coral (pagoda) the other day and I fed it using a slurpee lid and a turkey baster. The Lid keeps the shrimp close to the corals.
I will try using tweezers next time.
My question to you is, how often should I target feed my Pagoda frozen mysis shrimp...
Just thought I'd upload a few pictures of the frags I picked up today. I would also include a picture of my new squareback anthias if he wasn't hiding. He's still getting used to his new digs.
Anyway here's what I got!
I recently purchased a yellow cup coral. The polyps are in nice shape but on the back (the smooth part), there are 2 black sections. They are black crevices (so not topical).
1. Is that a disease or a sting from anemones or ??
2. What do I need to do about it?
Beginning yesterday, I saw a little brown blotch on two of the polyps one of the polyps couldn't open at all. I took a turkey baster and blew it off leaving what I believe was exposed skeleton. Today it opened up a little more but the brown "skin" looking stuff returned. Are they diatoms? I have...
Hello, everyone! I'm new here and didn't see a newcomer's thread so I'll use this to introduce myself and my tank.
I'm Barb, and my tank had LR put in on April 21, 2008. It's already loaded with corals. I've found I have no patience whatsoever, but I'm working on that! I live in Ohio, have four...
I was moving some things around in the tank, when I noticed this growing on the bottom side of my pulsing xenia. Does any one know what this is? It kind of has the shape of a cup coral, except it has little bulbs at the tips. I hope the pic turns out. Thanks for the help and hope to see you...

I dunno. The tank was over a year old in that issue, but of course they never say if things are still running or if they were taken down/IF they were taken down WHY it was(moving, got bored with something so small, roommate dumping stuff in...
we got a piece of live rock a couple of days ago and we are not sure what kind of coral this is on it. i attached a picture. it resembles a sun coral without the orange color.. but the tentacles are clear. some help identify would be great!
well after putting MH on the 29 and seeing how much I like it.. i'm thinking i am going to convert the 75 over th MH from T5... I'm thinking 2X250 MH with XM 20K bulbs with no actinics. Sooo. if anyone is interested in a 4X54 T5 Retro I may be willing to swap for a 2X250 MH fixture...I am...
I got something unusual in my tank that I haven't been able to figure out. It hangs upside down under some LR, light does not touch it. All you can see of it are white luminescent tips on the end of its tentacles. Otherwise the creature is clear. I really only notice it when I first turn the...
i don't know when they first appeared but i didn't think anything of them untill i noticed them all along the back of the tank. so what i did what i thought was the logical thing to do and scraped them away. big mistake. now they are on all of the shaded areas of rock. Sounds like aiptasia...

I dunno, I had an idea for a tank, but would have to build it to get it. I was wondering if anyone had any experience making them?
I was thinking about trying the plywood/glass method since it looks like it'd be sturdy, but does the cost of the stuff to seal it make the project more expensive...
