My first post to the forums. I’m no expert, quite the opposite. I’m looking for some sound advice, and I’ve seen a lot of it here.
Data: 32-gallon BioCube, 7 months old. Good flow, good LEDs. Ammonia, Nitrites and Nitrates at zero, PH at 8.2. Tank is 4-weeks fallow. Feeding ‘Coral Frenzy’, spot...
I've got a 12 gallon fluval edge nano FOWLR tank that's been established on my desk at work for almost a year. I used to have an actinic LED I built myself but it stopped working about 6 months ago. Since I don't have any coral I've been using two 30 watt 'cool white' LED floodlights to light...
So, I have 2 torch's, but I'm going to ask questions on 1 of them.
Each 'arm'/'polyp' has 2-4 'heads'/bulbs' - is that normal? What does it mean? What is looks like is the 'arm' goes 3/4 of the way up, and there are 2 'bulbs', then it continues, and the main 'bulb' is at the end.
I swear it's...
Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this little guy is. He was attached to a frag I got and the guy let him tag along for free. Someone said it looked like a baby torch buuuuuut I'm really not sure. Hes super cute though and happy...
I am wondering if I should be concerned with my torch coral's branches and tentacles being different shades. As you see in the image, the few on the right are darker than the rest. Thanks in advance for input!
Hey guys, I just Bought a hammer and a frogspawn from the fl frag swap on saturday. Woot but my issue is my frogspawn completely died in 12 hrs and my hammer is in bad shape, still some tissue but not extending, I know they take time but i am seeing somethings like stuff like clear gel running...
Alright reef tankers. I need some help. I've had my galaxea for about 2 months and my torch for about a month. But neither one ever extends out fully. Maby a 1/2 inch at most during the day but not at night. My real question is why do both I those corals retract into their skeleton when I turn...
Hey everyone, I have a Torch that I had placed up too high in the tank. Without noticing it, it got really bleached. now in only has a hint of purple in it. I have had it on the sand for a month or so but I can't seem to get anymore color back in it. Any advice on this?
Hello TRT---It's been awhile
I have a torch coral that has been large and expanded for about 4 months. I was running 2 Koralia power heads until I recently got a MP10. I'm running a mixed reef 40 gallon and have repositioned the SPS and LPS to accomodate for the increased flow. In general...
We've had a small tank (95L) at work for a year. Taken our time, learning and building it up. Alls gone well until last week. First one cleaner shrimp died, the next day, our other cleaner and peppermint died.
Did a water change (which we do about 10% weekly). Today, turbo snails x 3 are dead...
Hey guys. I'm looking at a Torch coral at my LFS. My tank has been up and running for 3 months, LFS says it will be fine in my tank.. What do you guys think?
It is a 29 gallon Biocube
can anyone tell me if this is a frogspawn or torch. Picked it up this weekend at the lfs (anyone in SW PA needs to check out slippery rock coral).
Also any advice would be great.
BTW Does it need to be down in the sand like that?
I have had these for a few months now and they are both splitting heads. The frogspawn is 2 heads with one in the process of splitting and the torch is one head also in the process. I've seen other peoples torchs and they are way more open so is mine as open as it could possibly be?
Ok so it's time I got some help from my fellow experts. Some of my LPS are still bleached from increasing my LEDs 10%. Around that time I switched from the crappy petco salt to IO. So a change in lights and salt. My hammers, frogspawn, and torch have stopped growing. They are discolored and...
Two things I just noticed. One, my healthy toadstool has a hole in it! I'm hoping it's damage rather than necrosis. I'm guessing it will be fine, but want to be sure.
Also, my torch coral either has both heads retracted or both heads out, and will stay the same way for days at a time. Well, I...
I was at a Boston Reefers Society frag auction yesterday and I came home with these new frags! I think I made a pretty good haul, all for $140! And I could help the club.

Hi everyone! I've been haning around TRT for a bit now and learned a lot! I started small with a biocube and I have a question about one of my new corals.
Here's my specs
29 gallon coralife biocube
Perimeters : ph 8.2
Hi, I'm new to the reef tank, but not new to the reef keeping hobby. My last few tanks have all been nano reefs, however I just purchased a 55 gallon(tall, not long. Unusual, I know.) I will be transferring all of my zoas(maybe 5 or 6 different kinds) from one of my nanos into this tank, but...
