    I have a Birdsnest Coral (Seriatopora hystrix) and a Orange Guttatus Birdsnest Coral (Seriatopora guttatus). The S. hystrix is growing and has some color but not much and the S. guttatus actually came to me white as snow but after a couple of days in the tank the polyps extended and have...

    So I've had this Kole Tang 8 days. Water is good tank is 9 weeks old. Other stock is two ocellaris clowns and a royal gramma. I think he's getting more pale each day and the wife says he looks the same. He's eating the algae discs and has cleaned all my algae in the tank. He ate some mysis and...

    I've had a kole tang in my DT for about two months (I did quarantine, no issues there, except for shyness, which ended the moment she entered the DT.) She has eaten well from the beginning, nori, flakes, all other food given to tank, and since in the DT has constantly picked at algae in tank...

    Hey all, If anyone remembers, my yellow tang had a tumor and I was worried about him, well the tumor is gone, (He made a full recovery) I'm guessing it popped or he scrapped it off. I've noticed since, he has been a lot more social with me. Before, he hid every time someone approached the...

    Our green fungia hasn't been eating the past few days, and our clown fish would always eat the food off him and kinda irritate him, so we put him in a little cover to hopefully see if he would start eating, but he still didn't.. And then I tried putting him under more shadowing since he was in...
