    Hello Everyone! My mushroom corals were my first corals I put in my tank, and I think one of them might finally be growing another coral, after 5 months! Here is a picture!
  2. Livestock Breeding and Propagation
    My wife recently discovered a string of "something" over the past couple days. After verifying it wasn't tube worms or really any other common critter, I found out that apparently Sea Hares lay eggs and mine has laid a considerable amount. So, naturally I have a couple questions. 1) What do I...
  3. General Reef Discussion
    Hi, this is my first time to use this website, (or any fish forum) and I'm hoping someone can help answer my question :) My husband has a 50 gallon marine aquarium for the past 5 years or so. About three years ago he got a sand sifter starfish and it only recently died. Last year, we started...

    So I've had this flower pot for about 9 months now. It has probably just about doubled in size since I've had it. Usually my flower pot seems like its flourishing every day, but a week ago I got my first protein skimmer. Around this time I noticed the flower pot hasn't been opening much. Anyways...
  5. "Soft" corals
    Hello fellow aquarists, I'm fairly new to the hobby and my tank has been running since last October. It's a 90 gallon tank with approx. 60-70lbs of live rock. I have a 20 gal sump that has additional live rock and caulerpa macro algae. I have filter socks, skimmer, GFO, carbon and UV sterilizer...
  6. Anemones
    Okay, this may be the dumbest question ever - how do condys reproduce? I have three currently, all doing fine. When I came home from work today I noticed what looks like a teenie tiny (maybe 1/4" tall) anemone sitting on the sand. It has a reddish foot and all but it retracts its tentacles...
  7. "Soft" corals
    I have a very small rock with three blue mushroom coral on it. The last few days it appears as though one of them (the biggest of the 3) has been trying to pull itself away from the rock with all its might. Just today it finally broke free and was just sitting on my sand bed by itself so I...
  8. Anemones
    Last night my LTA puffed up and spawned for hours... Clouded up my whole tank. Went back to normal after about 4 hours. Scary because I didn't know if it would affect the tank, but very cool. I nursed this anemone back to health about 8 months ago because it was very bleached, its awesome to see...

    So I bought 4 naccarius snails from my lfs the other day. They're really funny, they climb to the top of the tank and lauch themselves down to the sand and do it again only in different locations in the tank. My fish are just watching them and enjoying the show:funny: But periodically during the...

    is it possible for hermits to reproduce in a reef tank, if so, how is this process done?
  11. General Reef Discussion
    Ok I Just walked pass my tank and noticed my kenya tree has lost a couple branches they seem to be breaking of in clumps and sinking. Is it reproducing or dieing? I remember reading about soft corals that create a dense area on a branch, to sink, and tear off to make a new colony.
  12. LPS Coral Forum
    My hammer coral's polyps are "forking". They are forking on the the lower half of the coral where there is is less light. I have also seen two small pieces of green polyps floating around with no empty sockets. Can this be some sort of reproduction? If so can I help the little polyps attach to...
  13. General Reef Discussion
    Just got my order in and acclimated everyone and about 20 minutes after tucking in the Tuxedo Urchins, i noticed one was smoking. Now i know this is usually a twitterpating thing, but usually critters only do such activity when they are happy... this shipment was a day late and though well...
  14. The THINK Tank
    In your opinion........... Is this a goal that is achievable by hobbyists? With the amount of asexual reproduction and fragging that takes place in the hobby, is this a worthwhile field of study and research? Does the science exist to give us a fighting chance of success? Is...
