orange cup coral

  1. General Reef Discussion
    I got a new rock (sorry no pics yet) that had what I initially thought to be aptasia or manjanos. Turns out they are Strawberry Anemones (Corynactis californica). Anyone have any experience with these in their tank? Should I get them out quickly?

    Not quite sure of the feeding supplements required, but maybe some feedback will help. Prior to this email, I was using frozen cyclopeez twice a week in my 125 reef and feeding my rose bubble (1) silverside per week. My anemone has been wandering around the last 2 weeks and looking hungry. I...

    I recently acquired a specimen from the LFS. Since it is not a saltwater specialty store, they offered no insight. I originally believed it to be an orange cup coral, but I'm not quite sure. I have no picture to post at this moment. The outer skeleton is orange and there are tubes extending from...

    Just recently added an orange cup coral and have been trying to get it to open up to feed. I have tried isolating it in the tank and in a separate container while feeding it mysis. Last night it started to puff up and I could make out a few tentacles emerging, but this morning it was all...
  5. The THINK Tank
    On a serious note (I know:funny:), I wanted to bring something up. I think it is beyond agreeing that we should not be introducing new or foreign species into habitats where they are not originated = throwing corals or fish from pacific waters in the caribean for example. But, there is millions...

  9. Rochester Minnesota Marine Aquarium Club (RMMAC)
    Hi All; I have tickets and will be visiting your area from May 27th through June 5th. I'd really like to see everyone and maybe even a couple of aquariums. Hopefully you can work out a "special" meeting of the club!

    I was wondering if anybody has any Orange Cup Coral (Tubastrea aurea) in your tank. I want to get it for my tank and I was wondering how hard it is to keep. I know that it doesn't have any zooxanthellae in its tissue, so it doesn't use photosynthesis to produce food, and that means that you...
  11. SPS(scleractinians)
    The tentacles on these things are covered and tipped with tiny white spots. The Aptasia photos I've seen show smooth brownish tentacles. What is this? Should I get my kalk gun loaded? There is a group of three that came attached to a piece of live rock. Thanks Rick
