    Hello! Please see attached photos. The photos are of the female, of a recent purchased (mated pair) of Picasso Clowns. They are newly arrived, wild caught, from the Solomon Islands. So, obviously they are stressed. I'd greatly appreciate any input on possible treatment recommendations. As I am...

    Hey everyone, recently I noticed some pale white spots on my domino damsel, they are really hard to see and I cant get a picture. They are about 2mm in diameter and cover his whole body. They can best be seen when the light hits him in the right way. I havent noticed him acting differently, he...

    Yesterday I bought 2 ocellaris clownfish for my 29 gallon (soon to be) reef. The tank is 8 weeks old and finished cycling around 4 weeks ago. There has also been a six line wrasse in the tank for a week (who was initially aggressive to the clowns, but calmed down pretty quickly). The larger...

    We are fairly new to the hobby, having purchased an established tank (90 gal reef with 2 percula clowns and a purple tang) a few weeks ago. Things were going smoothly until we decided to introduce a cleaner shrimp three days ago. We believe the purple tang ate the shrimp as we can't find it and...

    Hey, the other day I bought a bunch of snails from reef cleaners. Today, 2 days later, I noticed a few dozen white spots on my rock. They are pretty small but very noticeable. I rad other threads on this and they had similar situations. They all had new cucs. Nobody seemed to know for sure what...

    Today I bought my first two saltwater fish, clownfish. I bought both of them together. After being acclimated to the tank by the drip method they seemed great both were playful and even were eating. About an hour or two later one of the little guys had a white spot on his right fin, which I am a...

    Hey guys, Brand new to the hobby, but am absolutely hooked! I was moving the live rock in my 55g around this morning and noticed tiny white spots on about 1/3 of the rock. Is this normal? The tank is about 3 months old and has been stable. Thanks in advance for any help! John

    I was wondering if the red spots were coralline. Some of the spots are very dark red. I see bits of purple around the tank on different rocks, they're growing slowly. But this rock has the most from what I can see from the front. I see this red stuff on other rocks, but they're more raised...
