    So I bought a toadstool from my LFS 4 days ago, at the store it was standing up right and fully open.. When they removed it from the frag tank it was attached to the tank, the employee was pulling at it to get it loose.. I think he may have hurt its foot as he was yanking at it, then I brought...

    Help! I got a new watchman goby on Sunday, and everything looked great! He is a smaller fish in comparison to the rest of my tank, but seemed to settle in nicely. He has been eating fine, and took up residency in the front corner of the tank. Today when I checked on him, he was covered in...

    Hello all, I have a 40 gallon salt water tank that has been established for about 2 years now. I have a tomato clownfish (been in tank 1 year) and an Oscellaris clownfish (been in tank about 6 months). The only other tank inhabitants are a chocolate chip starfish, long spine urchin, snails, and...

    Hello TRT. I've researched high and low for a good answer, but I've drawn a blank at every turn, and I'm hoping someone who's had the same problem will have the solution! The problem seems relatively mild, I have a porcupine puffer, Porky, who's not very old (I'd say ~1 year), still small for...

    So I purchased a slightly bleached BTA (LFS said it was from shipping) on Saturday. Day one was great, he looked lovely and bubbled up. Day. 2 he moved a few inches and slightly deflated but still seemed happy. Came home and he was really deflated, and almost completely in the rock. Decided to...

    Hi All, I have been battling some infection/disease/parasite with all of my tangs. I originally purchased mimic tangs, naso tang, and powder brown tang. I eventually lost all four over a 3 week period. They all started out fine with each one grazing well, eating mysis and bloodworms, and...

    Hello, My emperor angelfish is not eating. I've went out and purchased some cheap zoanthids in hope he'll eat them. I suspect he's picking at the rocks but I have yet to see it, but I've seen him hover face in the rock like he'll pick at it. I've owned him for 4 days, and on the third day I saw...

    Hi Reefers Last week Friday I bought 3 Bangai Cardinals just over an inch a piece and introduced them into my 20 gallon quarantine tank. (it had cycled for over a month with some live rock and a little sand all water parameters leveled and no subsequent/substantial change) I temperature then...

    Quick question. We have 2 BTAs that have been doing great. Fed them shrimp pieces yesterday and he was acting just fine. Acted a little weird this morning then he was fine again. NOW he is all deflated with this weird white string around it (yet its tank mate is looking totally normal). I...

    I have a 29 Gallon tank with 4 small clowns, 1 damsel, 2 gobies. I also have 1 kenya tree coral a carpet anemone and a condylactis anemone. I had a refugium that I had build myself out of a 10 gallon and some sheets of glass. The dividers in the refugium were only 6" so the volume wasn't very...

    I made a related post in the welcome section yesterday, but I felt this issue may be more appropriate for this sub. Here are some pics of my carpet anemone, I'm not sure what to do with him at this point, but I have concerns that he may be dying. :( http://imgur.com/a/xVTmo Here is the...

    I have a 29G Biocube that I've cycled for a good month and a half; I have 0 ammonia and nitrite and I wouldn't even say 5ppm nitrate. Just yesterday I put in 5 hermits, 2 margarita snails, a cleaner shrimp and a Striped Blenny. I've noticed today that my Blenny is very inactive and 'swimming'...

    so... I work at a local pet store and a dwarf fuzzy lionfish was shipped to us with a bacterial infection. Well the infection cleared up, but not before it ate away the fishes eyes. He now has only eye sockets :( I have never tried keeping a totally blind fish before, but i took him home. He is...

    Hey guys, I got a new ocellaris clownfish for my tank about a week and a half ago. He acclimated fine and even paired with my older, larger female clownfish almost immediately. No signs of aggression and everything seemed fine. The new clown was a little hesitant to eat at first but after about...

    I have an erectus male and female pair in a 15 Gallon QT tank. They just arrived this morning. I had them in the tank by 11:30 AM. They haven't eaten at all. I tried spot feeding them with syringe right in front of them several times and they refuse to eat. The Mysis shrimp are at the bottom of...

    Last night i noticed both my cinnamon clowns were no where near their nems, instead i found them floating in corners, still swimming, but really weak. This morning they were still the same, breathing seems to be normally and they are still moving so i moved them from the 180G to my 6G. These...

    First, A happy mother's day to all the wonderful mother colonies of the world today! Secondly, I've grown concerned over the past week of my cabbage leather. I'm attaching a picture so you can see why. I'm not really going to try and speculate. I would like to see what I can fish out before...
