When I saw him at the fish store, the brain coral was inflated and puffed which...

    I have a Finger Leather Coral I have had for like four or five months. It has been thriving in my tank since I got it. No issue until now and it has even been growing by leaps and bounds. At the base of each finger (on the inside - where the fingers meet the base of the coral) there appears to...

    Tank is nicely cycled and the cleanup crew has been cleaning away for a couple weeks. On Wednesday I added my first fish, a pair of Ocellaris clownfish. Fast forward 24 hours. I come home from work the next day, and one of my clown's tail was gone. Just gone. It looked a little frayed. I've...

    Hi Guys, I purchased this leather coral (w/ live rock) at the LFS yesterday. As you can see, it had three "branches" and one of them is dying. :bigw: I am not sure what to do at this point: (a) perform surgery to remove damaged branch, or (b) leave it alone and let nature take it's course...

    So i have had a problem for the last few weeks about corals showing up damaged in the morning. Luckily they are not getting completely destroyed (except i don't think the acan will make it), it is almost like something is sampling a different coral every few days. started with a hammer frag...

    I was thinking about adding an urchin to my tank but i have heard that urchins will eat coralline algae. Is it worth having them in there as cleaners or will they do more damage than they are worth. Almost all my rock is completely covered in coralline of different colors and i dont want it to...
