    About a week ago I added ... I just realized all of these posts start with the same sentence. So about a week ago I added about 50 Astrea snails to a 150 gallon year old tank. My Emperator Angel likes to hunt and eat snails at least 1-2 a day and I like to see my rocks and acrylic naturally...

    So I had a small green star frag that died (cheap led lights). Whittled up to just a small skin left where it was glued. Since it died months ago a small patch of dark purple growth started. The purple growth hasn't spread past the dead coral frag. Then a small patch of translucent/white growth...

    So these two fish have been in qt for almost six weeks. I've started TTM two days ago. (Backwards yes but this is how it worked out). They've been doing great and eating fine all this time. I dosed prazipro in the qt and observed nothing on them at any point and time. I look today and it appears...

    Hello First time poster here. I noticed this strange growth, pictured below, growing rapidly on the shell of one of my mussels. The mussel is also hosting some zooanthid polyps on the top of its shell as you can see from the pic. Anyway, I noticed this about 2 months ago because it literally...

    I just started volunteering at a state park as an animal care helper. This fish came from a roughly 500+ gallon FO tank. In the tank there's 7 other blue reef chromis, a French angelfish, some kind of smaller angelfish (I forget what kind), an Atlantic blue tang, and a couple of other...

    I've had these things in my tank for months. I thought it was one of the epoxies I had used bunching up but when I scraped it off the single rock, it started appearing (spreading) everywhere. What is it? Fungus is my first guess but I'm hoping for something less dramatic. My fish are all happy...

    Hello, I have had some strange things in my tank for a while and never got around to asking you guys what they were. I tried looking it up, but didn't get much out of it. I have some sort of sea slug I think, but not sure. It is kinda orangish pink. It is now getting huge. It was a spec when I...

    Hello! I am new to TRT, so I hope that I am posting in the right area. I have a yellow tang that is slowly declining and I have no idea what to do. My tank has been running for two months. Two days after I acquired the tang, I noticed signs of Ich and black ich. After talking to the owner of a...

    I just noticed some slime and white specs on my trumpet coral. I used a turkey baster to blow it off. The slime blew away, but there are fuzzy white specs stuck to the coral. They look like mold or something. Does anyone know what this is, should i be worried?

    Ok, So I have an aquarium with a red lava rock that has been in the aquarium for 6 years now. Other than an occasional bloom of red hair algae from over-feeding, this red rock has not spawned any life, nor seemed to cause any problems - yes I went against the belief that a store bought...
