    Hello all, Noticed what appears to be a small pink snail in our tank today. Hubby and I are having a hard time determining what it is and whether it's a good guy or bad guy. We got live rock from Florida gulf-- any ideas what this little might be? Any help would be appreciated!

    Hey guys! I just added some live rock to my 29 gallon tank and noticed there is a pink centipede with white furry things on its legs. I looked up the bristle worms and fire worms and honestly, those look way fatter and bigger than what i have. This thing is very thin. Looks just like one of...

    For about the last 2-3 weeks this stuff has been growing in my live sand bed, I was wondering if it is anything anyone recognizes or has had any experience with. The first time I saw it, it was about a marble sized blob on the right side of my sand bed towards the front of the tank near the...

    Hey guys! Can someone please identify this coral! It has detached itself from the rock it came on and has shriveled up since I got it but I think it is due to not being placed in the right spot in the tank. Thanks!

  8. LPS Coral Forum
    Is this a Pink Goniopora and if so , what are the chances of keeping this coral alive? My LFS has one and I would really like this in my tank but I will not get a coral (or fish) that I know doesn't have an excellent chance of survival.

    Found this reddish pink centipede in my tank. It it's approximately 2"long. Is this a bristle worm and if so what type is it? Is this type a problem to my fish, coral or reef as a whole.

After installation, I noticed one bulb glowing with an intense pink coloration (see reply for picture). I did a little research and found a few websites stated metal halides sometimes glow pink when...
