  1. General Reef Discussion
    So ive been doing some research before i start adding coral to my cycled tank and i wanted to find a coral that is both non toxic and does not sting. It seems that i keep finding coral that is either toxic or if it is not toxic then it stings. I even read that mushrooms are somewhat toxic with...

    So I moved something in my tank today and the back of my hand brushed up against my pipe organ coral. I've handled this piece a few times without any effects, but this time I immediately felt pain up to my elbow. There is a small red area where my hand made contact, and a few hours later the...
  4. Anemones
    I've just read that aiptasia are dangerous and can sting fish! I found this out after I found a brown spot on my sailfin. I just want to be sure before doing something drastic! It all started when trying to research why my sailfin tang is sitting at the bottom of the tank and not moving, I...

  6. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Hi everyone, So I have some dwarf seahorses and I was reading up on some things that could be kept with them. I came across that they have very tough armor like skin and scales. I went on and it said that they could be kept with things like euphyllia and anemones and not be stung. Is this true?

    Sorry I keep posting questions about this fish, but I want to make sure I am making it a safe environment. My question is, does this pipefish climb onto higher rocks, or do they stay lower? I really want some frogspawn and thought that if I put the frog spawn higher up in the tank, the pipefish...

    I was adding new coral to my tank and must have spooked my porcupine puffer into my carpet anemone. I didn't realize it until I put the lid back on and turned on the light. He was completely enveloped by it by the time I pulled him free. He has sting marks all over but alive. Is there anything I...

    Will corals like mushrooms and polyps be able to fend for themselves against being taken over by hair algae?
  12. General Reef Discussion
    How big does this coral get? How far should I keep it from other corals? Also, how many corals can fit comfortably in a 40gb?

    Boy did I screw up, got a new SPS about 3 weeks ago. (pictured below) I placed it without regard to my Blue Pectina's Sweeper Tentacles. With what should be no surprise I woke up this morning to notice it had (I think) tried to eat some of my sps. The upper right of the sps pictured there a 3...

    I recently purchased my 1st anemone a condy because it was cheap and I wanted to try one out. After reading up on it I found out that it probably will not host my clowns and that they move around the tank quite a bit. I also read that they can sting fish and eat them...has anyone witnessed this...

    Hey TRT, One of my Emeralds was crawling over my small GLTAs and got his butt stung, he seized up for a second and them moved off, but then seized up again and fell off. I moved him to a protected spot but he seems to have perished... or is he just paralyzed? Any thoughts?
  17. General Reef Discussion

  19. Anemones
    I bought a large pink tube anenome about 3 weeks ago. He only moved about an inch or so from where I had initially placed him in the tank down on the bottom. Problem is, I wake up this morning and he is on TOP of my entire rock structure :eek: And to make matters worse, he was completely...
