soft corals

    Hi Rochester area reefers, I am going to take an extended break from reef-keeping. I have a healthy 75G environment with a mix of SPS, LPS, and softies, two mated clowns, flame anglefish, large pajama cardinal, yellow tang, purple dotty-back, cleaner shrimp, large sea star, and various cleanup...

    Hello, I will shortly be setting up a new Aqueon 90 gallon reef tank, predrilled, that is 48 x 18 x 25. I will be housing mostly soft coral at first along with 4 or 5 fish, live rock and sand bed. I am looking for a light that will grow my coral that has the settings of sunrise and sunset. I...
  3. "Soft" corals
    Hi there new to The Reef Tank, hoping I can get others to help me know if this looks normal or if there's something I need to do. We have about 450 lbs of live rock that have always been covered with flourishing mushroom coral. The only thing I've done new is added new LED lights 165 watts on...

    I spent almost 2 years getting my tank "clean" and I think I succeeded too well..........no ammonia, no nitrites, no nitrates, no phosphates, ph around 8, Calcium about 560, magnesium 1550. Tank is 65g (36x24x18). Have broad spectrum LED lights -- a 36w current marine and a 216w black box...
  5. "Soft" corals
    Hi, I am new to owning a marine reef tank. Over the past couple of months I have added some corals. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what I actually have in my tank. All I really know is that they are soft corals. One of the pictures actually contains two corals on one piece of...

    Hi all, I have been keeping freshwater fish and planted tanks for years but am new to the saltwater hobby. In an attempt to take it slow, I bought a second-hand 28 gallon cube several months ago and added a clownfish and a goby, then realized I would need a lighting upgrade to try corals (the...

    Hi all, My powerhead bit the dust on my 28 gallon bow front salt water tank and I was wondering what I should replace it with. My tank has mostly pulsing Xenia and some mushrooms along with a couple of clown fish. I am running a HOB Reef Octopus protein skimmer on this tank. Since the tank is...

    I am going to be building an led light fixture soon, but I want to know if the stock led lighting is enough for some softies and zoas for now. I have a 10 gallon nano, currently a fowlr, which is the tank in question. Here is a link for the current led light im referring too. I can't really find...

    Hey guys, I am looking at getting back into SW and was thinking about picking up a 55 g tank. My previous tank was just a 10g with two clowns and some live rock but with this one I would like to add some soft corals. I travel a bit so would like to stick with the hardier guys. If that sounds...

    Hey there everybody, I bought a cespitularia frag that is just going nuts in my tank. I haven't fragged it before and was curious if it is fragged similar to Xenia. The way it is growing is its sending these runners across the sand (probably looking for a surface to attach to). Can I...

    I have a 30 gallon tank I want to house some Zoanthids in. I need help with the lighting. Would this be sufficient?: Coral life 50/50 fluorescent lamp. (24in) I am in the early stages of research so I'm still struggling with the lighting and all the terminology.

    Hello all - We are very excited about our new tank. It's completing its cycle with 90 pounds of live rock and approx 2.5" of araga-live sand. I recently changed the lighting to be ready for when we want to add some LPS and soft coral. In the meantime, we have a couple of small fish. We'd...

    I'm Back! I joined this forum a while ago and showed you my beginning tank. Here are some pictures of it now! Notice the soft coral has decreased in size, and almost seems to be tearing apart. This is thought to be a result of the previous Leather V Anemone battle (Which I did not post about)...

    Hey Everyone I am moving and don't want to risk losing all my beautiful coral/fish. Wanting to sell the whole tank if possible. Brought price down from 2000 to $1050. If I don't get it sold by this weekend, will see about piecing the tank to at least get the fish and coral to awesome fish...

    I have a 5 gal nano tank with a clownfish, a snail, and 2 hermit crabs right now. It has been running for about 3 months now. I have about 6 pounds of live rock, a lot of live sand, a power head, and a bad light. I also have the api saltwater master test kit. Can anyone give me a boiled down...
  18. Anemones
    So my beautiful pair of Ocellaris seem to have no interest whatsoever in any of my anemones?? Is this normal?? I have a bubble coral, a waving hand coral and also a large leather coral (I guessed the leather mushroom wouldn't be of that much interest anyway) but they just don't seem to care...
  19. "Soft" corals
    Started our first zoa and it now has this strange purplish/white growth coming up from the bottom and it seems to be taking over the zoa. Any idea what it is? See attached photo.

    Hey everyone, I keep seeing a ton of these "flower" looking these coming up out of my live rock? Does anyone know what these are, or if they're harmful? Also, does anyone know the best way to revive leather coral? And has anyone seen the mushroom that I have? Sorry, this is my first SW tank...
