  1. General Reef Discussion
    Greeting all, I got a few new corals but I quickly forgot names of two of them.:confused: The one on the sandbed is around 1-2 inch diameter and it needs to be fed. The other one is 1.5 inch high. Any help will be appreciated.
  2. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    I don't think he has much time. I noticed my Pearscale Butterfly fish -stopped eating yesterday. Will not eat anything. - lost some of his anal/dorsal fin it seems to just be disappearing - He will not go down into the rocks like he used to, where he hid under the ledges. - He seams to be...
  3. General Reef Discussion
    I have it for a while and its body is hardy with a little greenish color. I think it some type of SPS but I could be wrong. Any idea what could it be? Thank you!
  4. General Reef Discussion
    I found this on a new piece of live rock. It does have a bit green dots under the light. Any thought? Thank you in advance!
  5. General Reef Discussion
    I found this after the light off in my aquarium. It came out of the live rock and was waving slowly. Sometimes, there is another one from the next hole but I only caught one on the camera. Any idea what it is? Thank you!
  6. General Reef Discussion
    How's it going everyone? I recently was gifted some frags from a fellow reefer but he nor I know the names. Can anyone here shine some light on the names of the coral in the included picture. I do know the big rock is covered in GSP. If this is in the wrong section let me know. Thanks in...

    Hey all, I just noticed a few new critters (?) popping up in my tank. Anybody recognize them?
  8. General Reef Discussion
    Good evening I have currently been looking around for some assistance with a fish I have, I am trying to ID it however not many people seem to know what kind of fish this is. It was originally found at Balmoral Beach, Sydney in a rock pool however I have had great trouble trying to determine...
  9. General Reef Discussion
    Hey Y'all! Back with another question. I bought this coral frag from a online store about 1-1.5 months ago (roughly). Was supposed to be GSP. I thought maybe the stress of shipping made it different looking. However, after viewing others photos and realizing that time has not changed anything...
  10. Nano Reefs
    The LFS had it next to (not infront of) a cyphastrea sign. but it doesnt look like cyphastrea to me. Maybe a green digitata monti? not sure... What do you guys think? Thanks
  11. General Reef Discussion
    Hello Folks - and happy holidays! So, last night I woke up late and stuck a torch into my 400L (90G) marine tank, and saw a rather large crab I've never seen. It's about 5cm (2in) wide at the body, really interesting coloration and pretty cool. It wasn't an intentional addition to the tank, I...
  12. General Reef Discussion
    I am new- got my RSM 650 back in May. I have an algae problem and I'd like to see if anyone can help me positively id the algae so that I can properly treat it. My air was out for two weeks- tank got hot- did everything I could to keep it cool, including ice cubes in the sump. This was a...
  13. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Hello all, I found around 4-6 of these starfish in my tank and was hoping to get some kind of ID on them. Thank you
  14. SPS Coral Forum
    Hello, let me start by saying that I've never had a lot of experience in caring for SPS. I have a green acropora, purple stylophora, a green hystrix and a few others that I cannot identify. So far they've done well (Although I can't seem to keep Montipora alive at all...). I also installed a...
  15. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Any idea what this is? It's a little over a centimeter across. I've seen it for about a month, the first time I saw it, it was maybe 2/3rds it's current size, so I'm wondering if it'll grow much from here. There's still very little pigment to its actual body, leading me to believe that it has a...

    hi all, caught this hitchhiker...cant sump him....is he safe or should i take him to my lfs? thanks
  17. "Soft" corals
    I picked up these zoanthids at the LFS yesterday and no one seemed to know what kind they are. They caught my eye because they have a nice purple hue with an orange ring of tentacles. Hording zoanthids has become my new interest. :) Got any ideas on what they could be?
  18. "Soft" corals
    I bought a few frags this weekend and can't remember what the guy said this coral is called. Can someone help me identify this guy? Thanks
  19. Reef Fish
    So I'm usually pretty good at identifying petstore fish...but neither the (albeit inexperienced) fish guy nor my google-fu could unmask this fish. I thought it might be similar to a dartfish or wrasse, but can't peg it down. He was very sneaky, kept hiding in the rock work and didn't want to...
  20. Anemones
    Hey, (I'm baaaack!) I recently discovered a little anemone looking creature in a little crevice of my Lr! it resembles a small pest, but I need someone to ID it for me! I'm not sure if its pest or not, (and just got 3 pep shrimp in case). Here's a pic!
