    So my rescued brain coral looks like it is splitting! It has two mouths, and is perfectly healthy. Each mouth eats on its own, and seems relatively independent from the other. History: I got this coral in terrible condition (Ripped flesh, receding skeleton) a month ago and have carefully...

    I've got a branching hammer with 2 heads on it. I got it end of February. It's been working on splitting another head for awhile, but yesterday I noticed that it wasn't actually splitting another head, but 2 others on the same head at the same time! I'm assuming this is a great sign, but is it...

    It this a sign of my mushroom splitting? For the past week, it has been fat and happy; supper spread out. Yesterday it was not as spread out so I did a 10% w/c (I was going to it today any how so it just ended up being a day early) then tested my water a few hours later. Nitrate was a tad hgh...

    Hey all. Just wanted to run a picture by you and get some input. I've had this scolymia for 9 months and it was in bad shape when I got it. I've power fed it once a week since then and it has healed up beautifully. When it's open at night I can see two distinct mouths and it looks like there may...
  7. Anemones
    Have had our RBTA for about 3 weeks, during which it has never settled down. It's been in the back of the tank, so difficult to feed. Fed mysis shrimp the one time it cruised through to the front of the tank. It made its way to the front of the tank again today and split (starving?). I wonder if...
  8. Anemones
    Hi I have a new anemone in the tank at the start he was fine and huge!! Now he is tiny shrivelled up his tentacles are thin and green. I let him go a few days and now he's fallen off his rock face down and is getting a white line down his side starting from the edge which is slowly getting...

    Hey guys. So over the past few days I've noticed that one of my hairy mushrooms looks strange. It's kind of hard to see what is actually happening because it's pretty condensed, but it seems as though it's starting to split down the middle. When viewing the pictures, I have three different hairy...
  10. Anemones
    My BTA that I got a on monday is all shriveled. I possibly could have gotten food but I don't think that is the case. Why is he shriveled up the way he is He also has this weird brown stuff on the like foot part. What is it? I am 17 and this is my first anemone. It was not looking so good this...
  11. General Reef Discussion
    Hey guys so I just bought three huge RBTA's (14 inch diamater) about a week ago with the hopes of splitting them and trading them for corals and selling some of them. Yesterday i set up a frag tank piggybacked onto my sump to put them in so that they wouldn't completely take over my tank and...

    Well I came home from work to see my BTA splitting into 2. Should I be concerned? It still looks great at the moment. Hopefully it won't split further I do not need anymore anemones my clown is busy hosting 2 as it is lol

    Hi all. I have Two Gold Stripe Maroon Clowns in a 90 gal. reef tank. The smaller of the two has developed a split in his Tail Fin and his Anal fin. He seems quite healthy overall, eats good and swims about the tank well. I just checked all of my params tonight, and they are great. Ammonia...

    I have a frogspawn with two heads. Both of them have some tiny buds at the base. Recently I noticed some kind of splitting similar to Torch corals. I can not see multiple mouths, because the heads are so compacted with polyps. So my question is how does your frogspaw grow? Budding or splitting?
  15. "Soft" corals
    I have had this coral for several months and its about doubled in size. 6 Weeks ago or so, I moved/balanced it so it would stay more vertical. The stem slightly touched my LR. Now the stem is beginning to bond to the LR at the point of contact. What is going to happen? The coral seems happy...

    I think these are splitting, have never seen it but it looks like two mouths to me and has been making a figure eight pattern more and more. two heads are doing this. I the first pic of the mushrooms you can see two mouths, then in the second you can see the outline of two mushrooms and...
  17. General Reef Discussion
    Hi all, my frogspawn has been a little moody over the past few weeks and I noticed it now has to mouths and a new head growing on the skeleton. My question is since it has two mouths, is it pretty safe to say it is going to split? :)

  19. Anemones
    Well, My green BTA just split last night. It had closed overnight the evening before and came out looking weird the next day (I was a little worried); although, it had been eating and growing and hosting my little false perc clown. So - I go to target feed it today and notice a space...

    I think one of my button polyps is splitting into another head. There is what looks like a large bubble of flesh pulling to just one side. So do you think that this is it reproducing or is there something wrong with it? I would provide a pic but I couldnt get a good one. Any thoughts?:cool:
