    I've never seen this before, I beleive it was releasing waste. Fortunately I have a very large skimmer. It did not damaged anything on the tank and the skimmer removed it, when I cleaned the skimmer collection cup it smelled horrible.

(I know it sounds weird, but the problem started where most of my tiny feather dusters hang out) But now Its starting to spread to rocks that have...

    It appears that I have some kind of invasion of tube worms. Not sure if that's good or bad. They are small and I have counted at least 25 that I can see. Any idea about these things? I don't know anything about them. Please help!

    Hi, I set up a nano-tank on approximately July 21 of this year. It's been going well and my LR came with a ton of mini feather dusters. A couple of weeks into things I saw a little bit of green algae and thought, "Hey, I'll add a snail to keep that under control." Everything I read said...

    I think these are feather dusters but want to ask around to make sure. I have a bigger one on a small piece of rock with some mushrooms and now I have about 15+ smaller ones on another piece of live rock. Is this good or bad? Can they take over my tank?

    I want to add a feather duster to my 24-gal aquapod. Does it need to be "planted" on my sandy bottom? Or, can I putty/glue it to a rock? Do they have light requirements? Can I put them up high? Can they be stung by corals?

    The last few times I have cleaned my tank I have noticed something kinda growing in the sump. Today I looked at it closer and discovered what I think are hundreds of feather dusters. I have a bio ball system (I know....not the best thing to have) and below the balls in the sump I have what...

    Ok, I found some more unknown stuff. I'm guessing this first thing is a "flatworm" but I am not sure. Also I think the other thing is a baby shrimp, but is he a peppermint, because that is all I have in the tank that I know of? Any help is greatly appreciated, thank-you. Joe

    I am just starting to put together my 20 gallon tall refugium. For all those people out there that already have one, I need some suggestions. What type of pump should I use? I have been told a maxi jet 400 and then a rio 600 because you want slow movement. Do I need a powerhead in the...
