so I just finished my cycle my tank has been running for just about 5 weeks I was wondering when I can start adding corals and which ones are the hardiest and easiest to keep for beginners. I know I cant add them yet I'm just trying to plan ahead for the future
I have a question about my corals.
I have a 10 gallon reef tank. Almost 7 months old. It was downgraded from a 55 gallon when I moved back home with my parents briefly....they didn't want a large tank. I did not have a second cycle and did it all pretty seamlessly about 3 months ago.
Hello everyone! I got this marvelous looking mushroom last week but I still can't tell what kind it is. It's the enormous green one at the back, next to the green hairy mushroom. My first thought is an elephant's ear perhaps but I'm not sure.
As far as I can tell it's one big polyp. It didn't...
I have noticed that some white stuff is growing on my live rock.. it looks like a '' white ball ''
I would like to know if anyone knows what it can be? Is it a coral?
Please if anyone knows, let me know.
I'm trying to upload a picture but it's not working... I'll upload one later!
Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this little guy is. He was attached to a frag I got and the guy let him tag along for free. Someone said it looked like a baby torch buuuuuut I'm really not sure. Hes super cute though and happy...
Good afternoon to all of my fellow reef enthusiasts! I recently inherited a stocked and well established Bio-Cube 29. I've been able to identify most of what's in it, but I'm having trouble identifying one item. It's a rusty/maroon color, with a soft, flat, fleshy "lobe-like" body. Anyone have...
Saved a colony (sinularia dura) from the rock we received. Also got some red mushrooms, which are doing great. This colony started off in a low flow area. It didn't respond well to the light so low light, as well.
Changes today: I moved it in front of the trickle filter return. It opened up...
So finally adding some corals to my tank and I have added a toadstool.
Been in about a month and it looks like to two stalks and trying to separate and one is just hanging over.
New to this so I am looking for any advice.
I was given some type of tree coral and it kinda looks like a Kenya Tree but they all look alike. Looking for a somewhat positive i.d. I also have what i think is a leather coral but there again i'm not sure and it so happens i cant get a good picture of it. Any idea on what or how to feed them?
I wanted to know how often you should be feeding ur corals, I do have coral feed (it's a mix of stuff) that I got from my lfs but I forgot to ask and it doesn't say how often I should be feeding them. In my nano reef I've got 2 cats, a polyp and a sponge, so how often should I be feeding them...
I'm looking for the recommended ranges of flow rate for a softy tank.
I did a search and this post seemed to have the only specific info I could find...
Its states softies are tank turn over of around 15x per hour. Is that accurate?
