    I have a beautiful colt finger coral. It has grown tremendously over the past 8 months into a tree with lots of limbs. However, over the past two days it has not opened up after the lights come on. It has stayed in the shrunken, sleep state. If anyone can give me some idea of what to do I...

    We've had a small tank (95L) at work for a year. Taken our time, learning and building it up. Alls gone well until last week. First one cleaner shrimp died, the next day, our other cleaner and peppermint died. Did a water change (which we do about 10% weekly). Today, turbo snails x 3 are dead...

    I have nice colt, finger coral. Until recently it has stood up very well and just looked pretty happy.

  7. "Soft" corals
    I bought this finger leather 1 1/2 weeks ago, it was pink and long and healthy in the store, when i got it home it was shrunken up and green with pinkish stalks. I figured it was the shock of moving but every day it shrank more and started shedding layers of brown decay. Now black patches are...

  9. "Soft" corals
    I have a leather finger coral that has split itself twice since purchase a year ago. All three are naturally attached to a large piece of live rock. If I cut the coral at the base, will the "stump" grow back? I've heard the best method for attaching them to a plug is the toothpick-rubberband...
