    Hi. I bought an established tank from someone. They told me that these were polyps. But I think that they might be a type of pest anemone? What do you think?

    My tank was getting overrun with flatworms a few months ago, but I had a horrid experience with Flatworm Exit. However, it did get rid of most of the flatworms except for the ones stuck to my long tentacle plate coral. I tried sucking them off with a baster originally, but damaged some...

    These pics leave a lot to be desired but before I remove the plug I'll post this. The coral is a seasons greetings montipora that almost died from unknown causes but has colored up nicely under my new lights. I noticed 4 spiral tubes forming and are now growing rapidly. They do not appear to be...

    So I was cleaning out my sump, I have a plastic container in there that was holding some LR and when I took it out I noticed these gooey clear things with arms (almost look like tiny star fish maybe) attached all over the sides of the plastic. Some are very small and then there are two that are...

    Today I was observing my tank as I usually do and I found 2 new things. First is that inside my rock has a web like substance much like a spider nest and I was looking at that when a small insect poked its little head out of the hole. The next thing I found is a small clam like creature that...

    I got a few of these guys on my new live rock and I asked my lfs what they might be. They said it could be majano but they are kinda pretty and I wanted to make sure before I remove them. They do tend to move around the tank so I think they are an anemone.

    Hey there!(: It seems that some pest snails have hitch hiked into my planted tank, and I'd like to use a small fish to naturally rid of them.(: I love the look of the pea puffers, but I'm worried one would hurt or kill my fish I have now. The tank is 37 gallons, and more tall and thin rather...

    After my removing of the sand bed I've fund 3 of these guys and moved them to the pod tank ( it's like my Guantanimo Bay) for all outcasts.
