So I moved something in my tank today and the back of my hand brushed up against my pipe organ coral. I've handled this piece a few times without any effects, but this time I immediately felt pain up to my elbow. There is a small red area where my hand made contact, and a few hours later the...
I have one pipe organ coral. It was doing very well. Recently some white material is getting deposited at the root and looks like coral is getting problem to open on that area. Any idea what is this?
I just bought a Pipe Organ Coral and noticed that it does have aiptasia, I bought something to get rid of it but I noticed this thing crawling around the tank that was originally on the Pipe Organ. It crawled onto a snail and it left white rings on the snail, I just want to know if this thing...
I recently purchased a white pipe organ that has a really cool red 'bamboo" looking base (exoskeleton).
A white fungus/cotton looking growth has appeared at the bottom left side of the red/bamboo looking exoskeleton. It's in a place that would add more stability to the coral in it's...
Hi, I have a Pipe Coral that has been doing fine until recently, there are a bunch of small green bubbles growing all over one side of it. The flowers will not come out of the piping where the bubbles are. The rest of the tank is unaffected. Anyone know what this could be or have any ideas?

Basically, he started out being very reclusive, only coming out at night and sifting the sand only in a radius close enough to the rocks for...

Hello everyone - I'm pretty new to this hobby. This is my first tank of any sort, set up May 24, 2007 - but I've spent a lot of time researching and planning it. It is a 150 gallon acryllic 60x24x24 with a 6" DSB. 65 gallon refugium with chaeto. Running an ASM-G3 skimmer, an 8 bulb Tek T5...
Tank is doing OK. Not much growth. The switching of the MH bulb to the 10K XM helped some color but the tank still lacks allot. The blue tort is still light lavender and the green with blue tipped Acro is brown. The bali slimer has only grown 1 inch in ~6 months.
Growth has halted again. and...

OK... over the past week or two, I have noticed a HUGE increase in the amount of small, oddly shaped starfish all over my rockwork and tank surfaces. They are weird because they have legs af varying lengths.
I need to get a picture of them to post here... in the meantime, these starfish on...
