    Hi folks, I keep reading about STN and for the life of me, I have no idea what that is. Is there a picture of what it looks like? Thanks.

    I am normally pretty good about checking levels and keeping them up. I checked today after noticing some mild recession of tissue at the base of some acros that I have had for a long time. As of yet, there isn't anything noticeable on any of the montis in the tank. It is just at the base and...

    I have noticed today this brown like crap on my corals. One my Montipora digi, and the other my aussie delicate. So I took them down to the lab and put them under the scope. I am not sure whats happening here but its like a layer of skin is coming off the coral. Didn't notice any parasites...

    The more I read the more lost I am becoming...how do you know what to get? It doesn't seem like most places are sizing to the tank volume, but beside that I guess my real question is if you can go smaller and if you do- does it just take more time? When I read about a media like rowaphos, well...

    Well I would love some help on this one. This Monti is growing well around the outside but suffering from STN from the inside, as you can see from the pick. No other corals in my tank have any tissue loss or bleaching and I see no signs of parasites. Any ideas??? Water peramiters 1.024-...

    OK so here is the deal I have various sps that I was given in July of this year that have been growing well and showing great color and pe ect. up until about a week or so ago. I noticed the color going MUCH lighter. I have seen RTN - boy that happens quick, and i am hoping that this is not...

    I've had this a week, it's been doing fine. I have other sps corals, all doing wonderful. But I just noticed today that it's flaking off at the base. Any ideas what this could be from? I had a powerhead hitting it, that I've now moved. Could that have caused it to flake off like that? And...

    hey all, I am having some trouble with my 29 gallon. I have cyano bad. It started as a small patch. I blew it off and syphoned, and it came back stronger and worse. much more spread out. So, I did a really thorough cleaning. I scrubbed it off the rocks and syphned everything. it has come...

    i was wondering if you could overload your tank with coral (like the fish) or can you stuff your tank with tons of coral im asking because i was at the lfs and the guy said "man i see you in here every weekend and he said you need to slow down on coral" and i was wondering if he was jokeing or...

    So I had a few SPS frags about 6 months ago... acropora/montipora frags. They all got RTN after a month or so... except for one montipora cap..which is still growing ( slowly but surely ). Not really sure what caused it at this point... but was thinking of trying a couple more frags and see...

    Well, I just finished hooking up my PhosBan 150. I'm running it with about 20 grams of media in it. I figure this should be a good safe amount to start with based on discussions I've read here at TRT. The directions recommend 1g/gallon. This works out to 240g given my total system volume with...

    Well, I've had a "BB" tank for 2 years now, but it's only in the past month that I actually had a real BB tank. That is because (i feel) I had too much rock, poor flow patterns, and def. not enough fish, or skimming. Here was my tank at it's...

    I intended on whacking off about twenty 2" arms off of this coral..........When all said and done I ended up whacking a whole lot more than that off to save it. I thought i would share some pics. I always take pics of this b-nest when i go to frag it as think it looks really cool out of the...
