  1. General Reef Discussion
    So I went to Country Thunder (music festival) with the wife for 4 days. Our neighbor volunteered to feed the fish/dog so I nervously left out size 1 gallon water jugs with RODI and pre-portioned food for the three fish tanks. Came home at about 2 this morning, unloaded the RV and straight to...

    I recently acquired some grape caulerpa for my hang on refugium from a very well established 20gallon ref. I noticed clinging to the stuff, some 1/8 in. long orange and yellow critters. They seem to be mostly flat with a tube shape at one end. Almost resembles a sea squirt. I've never seen...

    Hi everyone. I'm a longtime reefer and very active on a local reefing forum, but this is my first post on this forum. A little about myself: I'm a recent graduate from Texas A&M Galveston and I received my Bachelor's of Science in Marine Biology. I have had an aquarium of some sort for most...

    I left my tank for about a day and a half this weekend, and when i returned. I noticed a huge chunk of Macro Algae growing like crazy in my tank has Died! It turned completely white and became really soft (gross). I'm wondering what could have caused this to happen. The only thing that is...

    I have some Grape Caulerpa Macro Algae http://www.forestryimages.org/browse/detail.cfm?imgnum=1357016 I was wondering it someone has a different kind they were willing to trade. I like the red stuff (not sure of the name) but anything else that looks cool will do (I'm going to put it right...

    As seen in this picture, (next to the anemone) is that a plant or algae? Is it good...
  9. General Reef Discussion
    Does anybody know what type of algae this is or if it is even algae.
  10. General Reef Discussion
    Can someone tell me what this is? At first I thought baby mushroom but maybe not. What is it and what do I do about it???
  11. General Reef Discussion
    Still trying get it right. Does anyone know about bubble algae? At least that's what I think I have. My tank has green algae with fairly large air bubbles attached to it. I also have a crystallized/ sugar web like substance on my coral/lr and my shrooms don't seem to like it much any advice?
  12. Northeast Florida Marine Aquarium Society
    Just noticed this stuff, anyone?

    I used ChemiClean this weekend to rid my tank of Red Slime. It worked great and I'm doing a 25g WC tonnight and will fire up the skimmer also. I was really impressed with this product. Red slime gone overnight!!! No ill affects and the tank is crystal clear!!! I started looking at some other...

    Ok anyone have any suggestions for Red Bubble algae control? I have been snipping and cliping it off for weeks trying not to bust any bubbles. I had an Emerald crab who didn't touch it... BTW here is he best pic I have. Its like green bubbles, but seems to root into the rocks.

    Well.....that pretty much sums it up. I just lost both tanks almost entirely. All sps. Dead. All clams I think are hanging in there.........half of the fish dead. All euphyllia....dead. All zoas will probably make it. Did i mention ALL SPS in both tanks........DEAD?? :cry: I took pics of...

    Just wanted to ask if anyone had any Chaetomorpha (cheato) they wanted to come off of. I got my sump up and running and wanted to add some cheato to the refuge. Thought local would be better than shipping. Hopefully add some copepods and get a colony started. Anyone intersted please let me...
  19. Tank Specs
    I have more than one tank, will add others later. Pardon the mess - fighting with it all the time. While I'm able to keep most of corals and filter-feeders alive and well, I have to change setups (and add the new nano-tanks) to fit their needs, not set the tank and fill it with animals who...

    Long time no post! Well, my big news is that I'm moving to Seattle. So, I gotta sell the nanocube. The neatest thing about this tank is that the stand was custom built by ARC member hesstondc. You won't find another stand as well built and unique as this one. Tank has an auto topoff that I...
