    Hi to all the names I still recognize on TRT as I logged back in this morning. It has been quite a while since getting online and lurking in the threads. I have to say that I just dont seem to have the time I used to these days, and that has certainly seemed to have a very negative impact on my...

It was high up in my tank and had good flow with good poly extension but all of sudden has bleached out and died. Params are good, lighting is excellent and I don't understand why it died...I have two...

    Hi. I recently got a toadstool a week ago and everything was fine, until now. I got home from school today, and of course, was gazing upon my coral and noticed brown areas on my corals, they are not those worm thingies. So I looked online and decided to dip in some coral revive and after that...

    Well, it's been awhile since I've been on here due to a very hectic work schedule. Recently I've lost a 4" crocea clam and a bubble coral and now I have a 4" welso brain that's going down fast. In the last few months I got behind on water changes (normally 20-25 gal every 10 days). I probably...

    I have set up a 14 gallon biocube approximately 1 month ago. I have 2 small zoanthid frags each with 4 polyps (1 frag had 25 polyps until the chocolate chip starfish mowed it over) and an acan coral. Over the past week she acan flesh, for lack of a better term, has started receding and the spiny...

    My button polys have been doing great, but now, i have about 7-8 "dead" ones. When i get close to them, all the other ones close up, except for those few. They look a little shriveled up and brown. i don't think anything is eating them or messing with them, and all my water params are good. So...
