    Hello everyone, I need some help with an ID for some white spots on my Pink Tail Trigger. This is my favorite fish and I am hopeful it will get better. I do not want it to die, nor do I want it to infect any of the other fish if it is Ich. None of the others show any sign of spotting. The fish...

    I believe we were talking about this being an Acan at the store today but now I'm looking online and it looks more like a Favia to me. Any thoughts? What are the typical differences? It seems that the Acans are usually more independent heads smashed up against each other and Favia looks like...

    I've started peaking in my tank at night with a flashlight to get a look at the creepy crawlies around my system and caught this guy for the second time in a row. It's always in the same area, moves around, but not very fast. Seems to slither, actually, like a snail. Anyone have an idea what...
  5. LPS Coral Forum
    I recently bout a Toadstool, and after adding it to my tank i found another small coral on the piece of live rock that the toadstool was attached to. it has the diameter of a penny or small button, but its very lively for a little guy, constantly moving one of its little "arms" in and out of...

    So I just took over maintenance on this 65 gallon bow front at work. It has been up and running for over a year. the other guy just got bored with it and let it go. the only thing wrong with the water was phosphates was .25. It had a ton of hair algea so I think it was a false read. I did a 50%...

    Can anyone i.d. this organism? I just noticed it about a week ago. I figured it was a growth on the rock. The next day it was an inch from the last place. Everyday it moves around the rock - but I've never actually seen it move. I don't know - check it out! Thanks!

    My roommate bought this coral a couple of weeks ago and didn't remember what it was. I think it's some kind of stony coral (SPS or LPS), but I don't know what it is. I've looked at several sites, but can't find anything that looks similar. I'm referring to the green specimen in the center of the...

    Hi I recently purchased a live rock with some soft corals on it, inside was a small red crab with three lighter colored stripes going from front to back, not really viable in pic. I am guessing it's not reef safe but does anybody know for sure.

    I bought some new Xenia the other day that is attached to a rock that came with it. It's not doing very good, but that's off topic. On the other side of it there's a little anemone looking thing that looks like a FREE RBTA!! It tene, but i think it actually is, heres the link: Sorry, it really...
