    Hi guys! Just one more quick question: we're cycling our 60 gallon tank (currently in week one). My husband and I wanted to add a bunch of beautiful dead coral and cowrey shells that we have collected from Hawaii over the past few years. Is it safe to add these to our tank? We've had them...

    I have two corals in questionable health. One is a small acropora frag. I wasn't really looking to keep any SPS, but my little yellow clown goby was pissing off all the softies by lounging all over them. Well, he LOVED the acropora, laid on it the moment it was in there and has pretty much left...

It's been about oNE month and this looks like it's coming back to life. Is that possible? And if so what can I do to promote it's life, and...

    I bought my neighbors reef. He's "holding" it for me till my build is complete. He let the water level drop using only a cascade canister on a 150g to reach 1.038SG:mad: This drop exposed the top of this coral to air for I don't know how long. Please ID this coral. Is similar to cup...

    My father offered me a bunch of dead coral from his old tank. This tank has been broken down for at least 20 years. What would be the best way to treat this coral before placing it in my tank? Are there any other concerns I should have before using this coral? My tank is in the process of...

    I had made mention of this in a few posts earlier, but kept forgetting to start a new thread on it. So, here goes. My 54 gallon tank was running a little too cool compared to my other tanks. They usually hover between 78 to 80 degrees, but this tank was ranging from 74 to 77 degrees. Of...

    while cleaning our tank today my husband somehow:rolleyes: managed to break our red plate coral in two pieces. It is snapped with a clean break. Should I leave both pieces where they are-side by side? will this kill the coral? Anyone else have a clumsy spouse:jester:
