    So. If you have followed some of my posts, you know that I have been battling dinoflagellates for a few months. Got so bad that I tried a freshwater nuke. Took ALL livestock out, emptied the tank, freshwater dipped rock, filled tank with only freshwater before mixing in salt, then installed...

    It moves at the speed of a snail, it's the long brown creature coming out of the hole with the hairy body.

    Please help me identify this thing. I was cleaning my tank and removing some sand as per a discussion on a different forum and several of these sea creatures appeared on the rocks. I can only guess that they were a small hitchhiker from a previous purchase that has been living - and growing -...

    Hi all, I have two of these strange "clusters" of hair growing on my live rock. It looks like I literally left a few pieces of hair floating in the tank, except it seems to be coming from a centralized location and kind of clings over the rock. Is this a type of algae? a worm? Good or bad...

    Hello - I recently setup a new 125g reef tank and loaded it with all dry rock and about 10lbs of live rock from my LFS. After about 3 weeks I noticed something growing on a piece of live rock. (The little purple things) Please help me identify it as good or bad! Thanks much!

    I have disappeared for a while mostly due to embarrassment. My tank went to hell. I have been traveling about 50% of each month and have 3 small kids and little time to keep things up. My mistakes: 1. Rushing it - I went from 35G to 75G to 155G in 1 year. Introduced livestock before the system...

    Hello! A complete marine novice here! and new to the forum! I have a 2 month old set-up and I have just come across something that resembles a seaslug? I have tried to ID it but was hoping someone here can help? I have taken it out until I can determine that its safe, as I have read that some...

    Can you guys tell me if these are Hydroids? If they do I handle this. I've read a hydrogen peroxide and then an iodine dip might work. The zoas are closed and mad. Right now now only a small piece of a frag plug I have split it affected. I can easily remove it.

    So I posted in the soft coral subsection about my button polyps. Lately I have noticed their vibrant green disks have been turning white in areas and they just seem to not be as happy as normal. Tonight about an hour after my lights went into night cycle I poked around with a little LED light to...

    Is this worm evil? Will it harm my SPS/LPS/Zoas/Clams? Thanks in advance

    Could someone tell me what this is and whether or not it is a good guy or a villain? And if it's a villain, how do I get rid of it!? Thanks!

    I have a stable tank with some corals and two clowns that has been running for 1.5+ years. There recently has been an infestation of "white dots", that don't move, are hard, and are predominantly on the rear plastic of the tank. It didn't worry me until now one of the clowns, big Maroon named...

    Not sure if this is the right spot.... So I'm still new to all the "good and bad" bugs and creatures that are in saltwater tanks.... but I'm clueless to what these are and if they are bad or not. When I first got my tank set up there were only a few at night. But now there are hundreds O.O...

    New tank...I'll post my parameters in my tank. I'm not using my light at the moment since it is a fairly new tank and I don't want a total outbreak... What I am questioning is the general fuzziness. I do believe my levels in my tank are stable enough to sustain a small addition in livestock so...

    Hi guys found this in my tank today, I assume it is a hitch hiker of some sort. Looks like it could be some sort of filter feeder? Any help would be great :)

    They are quite small and white but seem to be spreading through my tank from frag to frag only. I'm baffled because nothing i've found looks anything like this. Anyone have any ideas or experience?

    Hello everyone, I am trying to find out if these flatworms that have showed up in my refugium are dangerous. Both types don't seem to care about my zoanthids that are in here, they mostly just stay on this porous rock. One type is red and has a yellow or white spot and the other is reddish brown...
