    Hi all, I've been doing a lot of reading lately about palys and zoas and their toxicity (palytoxin). I started in this hobby about 1.5 yrs ago with a specific goal to help my children learn about and become excited in the marine ecosystem and marine biology. I have two boys, 4yrs and 7yrs...

    I am thinking about getting a sea apple for my tank. I have, assorted soft coral, scooter blenny, and clingfish. How hardy are they? And when they die naturally, do they release toxin? Or is it when they get eaten only? :arg:I have had a sea hare die and no adverse effects on the tank. Thanks!

    So, a few months ago I gave my cousin a piece of live rock with some green button polyps for his tank. Today his local lfs associate told him that these are very highly toxic and he shouldn't have them?! I've never heard such....any thoughts?

    I recently bought a 29 gallon biocube. I let it cycle for 5 weeks tested the water and bought a cleaning crew. One week later the tests came out good so I bought a mocha clownfish. Two days in the tank the fish started to swim sideways. I tested the water and my ammonia was off the charts. I did...

    I have been using Amquel plus on my fresh water each water change. I use tap water for my freshwater tank. The bottle said it was safe for Saltwater.

    I was doing something stupid, and I shattered 3 of my t5ho bulbs into the reef tank. Instead of taking off the hood, and removing the durso I tried to remove the durso with the hood on. Well, it was stuck and as it released my hand went smashing into the lights - stupid. Are the contents of the...

    After months of nursing a sick LTA back to health and finally having him foot himself, I cam home to find him sucked into the HOB filter and half of him shredded off. I confirmed that he was in fact unresponsive and dead, as well as being partially eaten by my peppermint shrimp. However, I...

    I inherited this reef and there's a very neat looking coral in one of the crevices. Originally it was fine, it's dug nicely into a crevice and stayed quite small for a while, now it's getting bigger and is causing the red and green mushrooms around it to shrivel and turn white (like burns). I...
