  3. "Soft" corals
    Hello there folks, Just a quick question. The guy at my LFS has stated several times that Mushrooms and Leather Corals reduce nitrates. Is this true? If so, is it a good idea to add them to a tank first followed by some zoanthids, hammer corals, or perhaps some frogspawn? I am not interested in...
  4. "Soft" corals
    I noticed last evening, after the lights went out, that my finger coral shriveled up as usual except for one "stalk". Later today, I found that stalk had detached itself, somehow floated to the other side of the tank and attached itself, standing straight up and in the middle, to a piece of...

    OK, I seem to be having an issue with my Loco-Lobo leather coral. It has always done quite well, but now I have started to notice a bad spot at the base of one of his lobes. I looks like it has started to rot. It began as a small hole, but now it has almost cut the lobe away from the main...

    I have a rather large rock, maybe a foot long or so, on which is attached 2 finger leathers (one big one small). One side of rock is encrusted with the pavona coral and there is a large amount of gsp on it as well. I will think about what I want to sell it for until I have an offer Greg.

    I know when adding fish to a tank, you can only add so many to avoid overloading the system. I am researching the idea of converting my 55 gal. FOWLR into a Reef Tank. Planning to order online. They have a deal that if you spend so much (about $200), the shipping is free. Of course, like...

    First and foremost, I would like to say hi, I randomly stumbled across this site when doing research for my marine tank in the near future and these forums look like a collage of collected people of similar interests and information, so I figured it was a good place to start asking questions. :)...

    I'm new to saltwater. The tanks been set up for about 3 months, all the fish lived (wow!) but one of two leather corals is "dead". I saw on a website they can go dormant but to remove them from the tank if they don't pass the sniff text or are starting to decay. I smelled it (still laughing...

    Ok...I'm still a little confused about the filtering setup for my tank. :( This is what I think I'm going to do but I'm still unsure about the maintenance part: ditch the ceramic rings use carbon once a week for ~12hrs after water changes put live rock crumbles in the back chamber with the...

    What are the yellow spots on Leather corals? I've gotten these problems a few times where my leather started dieing off... I read somewhere that the leather actually sheds skin. Well, my experience is usually when the yellow spots form on the leather, it starts shedding skin or "dissolving"...

    Just saying hello, I'm new to the Jax scene (iv'e actually lived here for two year but spent half of it in the desert) and SW for that matter. I turned my FW 55g into a SW FOWLR tank about 5 months ago, but will probably be setting up a rr 90g tank this month and tear down the 55. Well anyways hello

    OK, so I just bought another clownfish to keep the first some company and for them to hopefully mate. So far, the bigger one just keeps chasing the little one around. Are there any secrets on how to get them to pair up and mate?
