    I was wondering if LPS need a skimmer. Also, can soft corals and LPS be in the same tank without fighting?

    Hi everyone! I am going to be going to my first coral swap on Saturday, and hopefully pick up my first few corals there as well. As a reference, I have a 30 gallon aquarium with clowns that has been running since January, and all of my parameters have leveled out, so I should be ok on that...

    Came across this coral. Seems pretty unusual to me. The polyps form into what look like little flowers.
  7. Skimmers & other filtration
    Hi all, I currently have a couple of small aquariums that have HOB skimmers on them but I am stepping up to a 90 gallon aquarium with a 30 gallon sump and I hope I am not stepping "out of my league" as I have no clue which skimmer to get or how to even plumb it to my tank. I have read that the...

    Hi everyone! I plan on documenting the growth of my two year old mixed reef in here for my own records and for the viewing pleasure of others. The tank is 120 gallons with a 20 gallon sump. This will hopefully be a very picture-heavy thread. Please feel free to ask plenty of questions! Here we go!

  10. "Soft" corals
    I've had it over a month now and seemed happier when i first got it. Never really opened all the way up and seems to have lost some color on one side. Moved it around a couple times to lower light/less flow and nothing really changed. Ive been told its almost impossible to bleach a mushroom with...

    Are their certain corals that I can place near a pom-pom coral that will withstand the growth and brushing-up against? Thanks.

    Anyone wanna try to ID this coral for me? I got it for free 2 years ago when someone dropped off a bucket of coral at the pet store I work at but we don't do saltwater so my manager let me take everything home. I've had this thing since it was about the size of a quarter and it was completely...
  13. "Soft" corals
    Hello, I just got a finger leather coral five days ago and I was wondering if it looked healthy. it was still a bit deflated but the polyps on it are out. I found a two inch bristle worm in my tank and I was wondering if it is going to affect me in any way. Please give feedback on the pictures...

    I just set up the 29 gallon softie tank. I don't know a whole lot about these coral so I may need some help along the way. The tank has 30lbs of oolite sand (might be regretting this) and will have a 10 gallon sump hooked up below. I am getting a 27" maxspect razor this coming weekend for...

    Hi everyone! So I'm settled in at school, it's my second week back, and im happy to say that the move went very well. I got my tank up here using this method, and all I lost was a single hermit crab. If you do need to clear everything out of your tank, try to get small inverts out first, since...

    Hi Guys- hoping someone can help me figure out what is popping up all over my red mushrooms. They look like small, translucent, flat mushrooms. My discos don't seem to be bothered in the least, but I am. The little guys have been around for about 10 days, seem to be becoming more numerous, but...
