    Ladies and gentlemen: I've got a roughly 110-gallon display tank with a roughly 40-gallon sump. Water parameters are nearly perfect. 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, undetectable nitrate. No unwanted algae. I feed twice daily with frozen - mostly brine shrimp and a very small amount of Hikari Marine-S...

    I wasn't sure where to post this so let me know if its in the wrong category. Yesterday I went to feed my sting ray and her mouth looked red and sore. Of course she's not eating. This morning it looks even worse. Her fins are starting to turn a little pinkish around the tail area. Any idea what...

    Good afternoon everyone, I've had my 50 breeder up and running (fully cycled) for 3 months now. I currently have three fish (Goldhead Sleeper Goby, Yellow Coris Wrasse, and a McCoskers Flasher Wrasse). Everyone until recently was doing well. I've had the flasher wrasse for about a month, and...

    Hi all, been a while! My bicolor foxface who has made a miraculous recovery from his previous owner's care has developed these weird pale patches on one side. This is not his camoflage coloring. No clamped fins/cloudy eyes, moving and eating like a pig, but he's still really shy. I'm hoping I...

    Today I noticed my porcupine puffer had a dark bruise like swelling on his belly. I have been working different hours this week so I haven't had a close eye on him and am not sure how long he's had it. I have never seen this kind of injury on a puffer before and none of the other fish in the...

    So I brought home a long tentacle anemone last night, acclimated and put it in the tank. Seemed to be doing OK. Settled in a corner, opened nicely and didn't seem to want to move so I went out of the room to do some research on it and getting the clowns to recognize it. Went back to check on it...

    Tank is nicely cycled and the cleanup crew has been cleaning away for a couple weeks. On Wednesday I added my first fish, a pair of Ocellaris clownfish. Fast forward 24 hours. I come home from work the next day, and one of my clown's tail was gone. Just gone. It looked a little frayed. I've...

    My clownfish has an open wound on its side. What should I do. I just noticed it today after I cleaned my tank. It looks for like a scratch... [/URL][/IMG]

    So I woke up this morning and could not find my Valentini puffer. Then I noticed the protein skimmer was not working properly. so what do you know, he was sucked up. After taking it apart I was able to get him out but he is not in good shape at all. His tail is red when it is usually yellow...

    Can anyone tell me what this white dot is in the middle of my star? It wasn't there a week ago. I looks like a little white wart. Sorry the picture is a little fuzzy...but the best I could do with my camera.
  13. Anemones
    I just moved a a piece of live rock that part of my bta was attached to. It was attached to another rock and when I moved the rock I accidentally tore the bta, exposing some internal organs. Is there any hope of survival? I have some "Revive." It says its good for injured corals and anems but i...

    Today I used a handheld maxi-jet 1200 to blow off the debris from the LR & coral. I tried to keep 12" away to minimize the force of the flow. Occasionally I would be closer, and if the suction end came too high it would grab air resulting in stronger turbulents. I succeeded in suspending a...

    Hi, I'm running a 55gallon saltwater tank. I bought a few additions yesterday and one of them was a green sea serpent star. Yesterday he was fine and he was fine this morning aswell. When I came home, I noticed he has a relatively big gash in his main body. What can I do? Pictures...

    Hello, I am a newbie here obviously! Well we noticed that our Six-Lined Wrasse had a small hole on its right side yesterday. Looked like he cut a chunk out of his side. Today that injury looks a little worse. We just upgraded our tank from 20 to 28 gallons (with a mirror now). I wonder since he...

    Hi There, I need some help I have a female clown fish with a gash high on her side. It is 3/8 an inch long and deep enough in one spot to have a flap of skin peeled up. She is hosting a piece of live rock and I think she may have cut it there. She is part of a mated pair and rules the tank (yes...
