    So I bought a toadstool from my LFS 4 days ago, at the store it was standing up right and fully open.. When they removed it from the frag tank it was attached to the tank, the employee was pulling at it to get it loose.. I think he may have hurt its foot as he was yanking at it, then I brought...

    Hello everyone. My cleaner shrimp just died. Last month my fire shrimp died. They both died while or before molting. The only other fish I have in there is a Coral Beauty and a orange spot goby. I also have a pistol shrimp, but it wasn't in there when my fire shrimp died. Any feedback on why...

    Hey guys, new to the forum here. I have a leaf plate, I believe, that is dying. Just want to know if it's recoverable and how I might speed recovery up if it is. I have a biocube 14, ph is at 7.8 (using buffer to raise that), ammonia at .25, all other chemical levels good. 10% water change...
  11. Anemones
    Hello there! I apologize if this isn't the proper way to do this, first post, first SW tank, and with it comes a bit of cluelessness I'm afraid. I've recently bought some live inhabitants from a long time aquarist getting out of the hobby, among them were quite a few colorful polyps, an...

    I made a related post in the welcome section yesterday, but I felt this issue may be more appropriate for this sub. Here are some pics of my carpet anemone, I'm not sure what to do with him at this point, but I have concerns that he may be dying. :( http://imgur.com/a/xVTmo Here is the...
  13. "Soft" corals
    Hello. After some help please. All three of my hammerheads seem to be dying - very contracted. All had been fine for several months. We went away on holiday and the neighbour had strict instructions, yet from the moment we arrived back it was obvious that they were starting to struggle. I have...

  15. "Soft" corals
    I know that Xenia can be tempermental as in they will close for long periods of time, stop pulsating for no reason, and much more. But I've noticed something different with my little guys. They have been doing great for WEEKS. But suddenly this has happened... everything else is happy in the...

    Three days after adding GFO media, 1/4 of my yellow polyps (previously like weeds) were dead with the rest closed up. Montipora and other corals looked better than ever, with highly visible polyps! (For the first time). I removed the GFO media, and two days later the Yellow Polyps are happy as...
  17. Anemones
    This is my first anemone and I was told by an experienced reef owner that my tank was ready for one. I've had my tank running with live rock/sand, 2 damsels, and 2 clowns for almost about 3 months. All water conditions are great and feeding going well. I purchased this bubble anemone about 4...
  18. "Soft" corals
    Recently I purchased a clump of red and a clump of yuma mushrooms. They've been doing great, but ever since I put them in my aquarium, my Xenia has been in decline. It actually has gotten to the point where a whole group have died. I was wondering if this was the result of the mushrooms...

    Last week I added 10 snails to my tank and within 2 days all of them had quit moving and spewed out a white, stringy substance that almost looks like they're covered in cob webs. I didn't smell them but I just assumed they were dead and removed them. Last night I added 6 more to the tank and 3...

    Hi there, I'm kind of at a loss with some of my newest fish dying. I have a 29g biocube that has been running for 7 weeks. I test my water every other day; do a 20% water change once a week and have a generally healthy tank. I have a cleaner shrimp, clownfish, 2 hermit crabs, several snails, and...
