    Hello, I am currently in the process of planning a tank upgrade, and I am musing over potential inhabitants. Namely pipefish. My concern however is I currently have 4 elegance corals which I will be moving over. Basically I am curious if the pipefish will become a snack. If anyone has any...

    I have had an elegance coral for like 8-10 months (dont know whether aussie or indo), initially it was doing great fully expanded beyond the skeleton like 7x6". Now for the past 2 months it does not extend anymore, tentacles have shrunk and it does not open as much as it did. It still has good...

    OK those of you whose have thriving elegance corals --- This is an Aussie that has been in the tank for 4 weeks. After the lights have been on for a while it normally opens up fantastic (except occasionally it won't open all the way for a couple of days). I noticed that the back side seemed much...

    I got an Aussie elegance 3 weeks ago and it was doing fine. Was feeding it small pieces of fresh shrimp. Wednesday I was going to mix up the feeding a little and gave it a small piece of silverslide from a pack that was in the freezer. It ate it fine but by Friday it had all sorts of mucus...

    OK all you with experience ---- I bought an Aussie elegance a week ago. I have fed it small pieces of fresh shrimp which it takes fine. My question is can you feed it every day as long as it accepts? I know excess feeding effects water quality but would it harm the coral?

    I want to break the myth about mixing different clowns in the same tank. I have a 66 gallon tank that has been up for a year. I started my tank last July and decided to make it a predominantly clown and anemone tank. I've always thought the Fire Clown fish are cute, so are the Pink skunks. I...

    Hello. My elegance seems to be slowly declining. I am attaching 2 pictures, one was taken maybe a year ago and the other one is now. It is losing its colors and tentacles are much shorter now. It is eating when I feed it. It inflates during the day and deflates in the evening. Can someone tell...

    Question: I bought an Aussie Elegance on sale at a LFS that was having a moving sale. The guy behind the counter told me to feed it thawed frozen krill. After doing a bit more research it looks like I should be feeding small pieces of oyster or shrimp? Thanks for the help. This is a...

    Hi, I bought an elegance coral just less than a week ago. I bought it from someone on ebay who i had thought was a hobbyist who was selling one he had had for years, but in the end he turned out to be a guy with three tanks setting up a business. I took about three hours to slowly aclimatise...

    I want to share my experience with elegance corals that I've had since August, and my thoughts on acclimating, and how it reacts to supplements such as essential trace elements and calcium supplements and feeding. So I've always been fascinated about elegance corals, and I might add that it's...

    Hello. My elegance coral seems to be fine and thriving, except that is it losing its bright green color it used to have. Is that what is called bleaching ? I heard strontium is needed for that. Does anyone have any experience ? Thanks !

    I have a read a few good posts on elegance coral and haven't quite seen anything like what has happened to mine. This picture was taken just after the lights went out (apologize for it being a little dark) but for the most part when the lights are on it is extremely bloated with no real...

    I was fragging some zoas for my friend few hours ago... I took the rock covered with zoas and I broke off some piece for him (as You do). While doing it I noticed bristle worm that had his home right where I broke off that piece. Poor guy was trying hard to escape but he was strugeling badly...

    I bought an Australian Elegance Coral 2 1/2 weeks ago and it was looking good. I was gone for a week after I added it to my tank. It was still doing great when I returned and was doing well for another two days. Then it began to retract completely into the stony part of the coral at night...
