    The mushroom coral must have grabbed something it really liked. I suspect it has done this before, but I haven’t been there to see it. The whole thing took less than 5 minutes.

I currently have a Marineland Doublebright LED System covering my whole tank and it is just NOT doing nearly enough as the person in one of my LFS's said it would.

    So after my third time cutting a mushroom into pieces I realized it still makes me nervous. Mostly because I'm still new to the reef keeping scene. So in an attempt to assuage my fears about killing everything any time I touch anything I had a few questions. 1 - How often do the pieces of...
