i'm going to be moving one tank (with DSB) to a new tank with a bare bottom setup.
one thing that i'm not sure about is my open brain coral (Trachyphyllia Geoffroyi)
how will this one like a bare bottom? the skeleton is like a pointy cone, so he'll be tipped over leaning on it's side if i put...

okay, time to edit my 1st post, and give some factual information, instead of me rambling and guessing at what i'll do.
the plan still remains that i'll be moving my 90 into this 24. but not everything will fit, ofcourse. most of the rock will be up for grabs :)...
this guy has what he is calling "scolymia wellsi" and i can't find it anywhere. i can find "scolymia" and comes up button coral, meat coral, ect. these do look very close but i thought id ask just to be sure. also i was wondering what i could expext to pay for one at a LFS.
I recently added a healthy pair of ocellaris clowns to a 30-gallon reef tank with a BTA, Trachyphyllia geoffroyi and some Euphillia. The male appeared more stressed upon introduction and retreated to the back corner with elevated respirations. The female immediately settled down and looked quite...
We have a 30-gallon Indo-Pacific reef tank that we are just getting started. The system is currently running with live rock, and I'm adjusting my params. Thinking down the road a bit, we're researching corals for this tank. We'd like to start from the bottom up, so our first question is about...
For a bunch of reasons (some beyond my control), I am buying "cured" live rock at the LFS today. It's been in their tank for a month under halides and looks great. I will be adding it to a new 30 gallon tank that has been running with just saltwater for a week. I think I'll go about 3/4 fiji and...
i'm about to place an order on some livestock today.
i will be ordering from either liveaquaria or marinedepotlive
i'll be getting:
two : small True Percula Clown (Amphiprion percula)
one : Sleeper banded goby (Amblygobius phalaena)
one : Diamond watchman Goby (Valenciennea puellaris)
I saw this today and figured it would be of interest.
edit: apparently the link doesn't work directly right now. The article can be accessed on the RC.com main web page.

I brought 1 yesterday and I was just woundering where I should keep it.
I know they said brain coral should be place at the bottom. Does that mean on my SB, or on a bottom rock?
Right now I place it on my bottom rock about 2" above the SB, but I really want to know if I should move it to...

I live in Pine Island MN. I have been reef
keeping for some ten years now. I divorced about two

to get back into it. Here is a little information about my
tank as it is now:
Okay...I've failed, and I know I'm supposed to have learned something...but I can't figure out what. So I'm hoping you guys can help me.

Got a Brain Coral (Trachyphyllia geoffroyi) and a
Trumpet Coral (Caulastrea curvata).
First on-line purchase ever. And VERY satisfied (Liveaquaria.com).
ANyways...the pics (from bucket to tank).

The LFS I was at had what they called a Watermelon Brain coral. And my g/f fell in love with it. Problem was, it was a bit bleached and worn in spots. I told her to pass on this one, and we'd get another one elsewhere.
Problem is, I can't find anything anywhere called a...
