    There are white stringy "worms" or something that are bothering my Zoas. They are not the kinds that live in tubes "Vermitids" or any tube dwelling stringy worms or snauils. They attach them selves directly to the rock. The end of the strand is shaped like a tear drop. The current rubs them...

    Ok, so I had this happen with my candy cane as well, just curious what it is. My hammer pulls all of its "hammers" in tight and opens it's mouth, then this clear stringy stuff comes out and waves around. What is this? Everything I've read said their poop was brown. This is clear, you can only...

    I have a clown fish that has been in the tank for at least 2 years. On the 11th I noticed he wasn't really eating. We were feeding more frequently so I just assumed he may not be hungry. By the weekend he was being a very picky eater. He was sucking in food (Rod's food) but spitting it right...

    I have a blue-ish green-ish chalice with pink or orange spots. Depending how you look at it. Anyways. It's shedding along the edges. It's round...probably like 1.5" diameter. Could this be its tentacles? I have looked at all times through the night but I have never seen tentacles coming off...

    Hi - apologies as I'm fairly new to the forum so not sure if this is covered already...have something that looks like a tan hairy moss and have no idea if it's good or bad. It's not green hair algae (at least that I know of but looks like a feathery tan stringy moss.) Anyone know what this is...

No clue what it is I've googled it and searched on here. Last time i removed all the foam and it went away. I...

I tried to ID them on my own searching google and here using the word "string" but was unable to find what i have. If anyone can help ID them, my tank is still...

    I have had a yellow tang for about 2 months now. On Saturday I put some macro algae in my display tank. The tang and blenny have been swimming near it a lot. The clowns avoid that side of the tank since I purchased them. Yesterday I threw 3gallons of water into the tank before I turned on the...

    My torch coral started spitting out a red stringy slime today. What is this and is it a problem? One 'branch' is completely pulled in and other one is retracted a bit too. Only had this one a week and I am very new so any help would be greatly appreciated. Frog spawn is doing fine along with...
