  1. The THINK Tank
    Been a while since I posted, my tank is doing Ok. Finally removed the last bit of sand maybe 6 months ago, joining the BB tankers.:beer: Still having no luck with SPS :bawling: figure it has to be something I am doing, stressing the corals. I just suck and not sure why I still am in this...
  2. The THINK Tank
    Hello everyone, I've had a nasty case of STN going on with my SPS. A mix of montipora and acropora have started dying from the bottom up. Not sure what the root cause is. I've used CoralRX on a couple frags and a colony today but could not find anything more than some tiny shrimps in it and a...

    I posted this on the SPS section but got no reply so: I bought a really nice millepora last week but after putting it into my tank I notice something weird on the right side, at first I believed it to be hair algae and blew it off. The days that followed I noticed the tissue was receding slowly...

    I bought a milliepora and was showing signs of STN so I threw it out. I bought another one and I guess due to my LFS lights I couldn't see if the one I bought had anything wrong so I got it (mind you its only $10). After the first week of LED acclimation should i a)put it where I would want it...

    So after getting back from Hollidays I noticed my red planet had STN however nothing else in the tank looked to have any problems. All parameters are perfect as well. Last night I then was looking in my tank after lights out with a flashlight and noticed my maze corals reacher tentacles were...

    Sorry for continually asking about this and the not-so-great pictures (below), but last night I noticed red bugs around the base of my green acro. It looks like they are causing STN. For the past week or so it has been browning, and I initially thought it wasn't liking the light it was in, so I...

    Sorry for continually asking about this and the not-so-great pictures (below), but I'm pretty sure that this is STN. For the past few days my green acro has been browning, and I initially thought it wasn't liking the light it was in, so I adjusted that, but now I am noticing tissue loss along...

    So here's the situation.... I lost power for 6 days when Sandy hit, and needless to say it was pretty devastating on my tank. Luckily I had no work, so I was able to spend roughly 20 hours every day manually stirring and circulating water through the sump with buckets. I also heated water at...

    Ok, i have been dealing with this for a couple weeks but seemed to pick up in the last couple days. Most of my Montipora(caps, ect) have been losing color and turning white. First they lost the white growth around the edge and then they started to turn white in random places. Now, wherever it is...

    I have switched tanks about a month and a half ago using most of the water and all of the rock from the previous 1 year old tank. Everything went well as opened up quickly. I also switched to LED/t5 lighting and acclimated the lighintg slowly. Again, everything went was/is going well. A few days...

    Just noticed this the other day, seems to be turning white inside towards the base. He is growing like crazy and seems fine otherwise, i read something about STN but that looks from what i have seen to be a raised white patch on most corals, this just looks like the portion of his base is...

    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 will post a picture when I get home (from college) but my deep blue acro, according to mom, looks to be losing a bit of pigmentation at its base and the undersides of its branches...I noticed a slight bit of it when I left in January so I'm pretty sure its not necrosis otherwise the thing...

    We have talked about fish diseases, mostly crypto but we often forget about the various ailments that coral can get. I know many people who quarantine their fish but not corals that they get in. What kinds of parasites and diseases do corals get? How do we prevent them? If we get them how...
