After posting two days ago that I had two corals (a hammer and a frogspawn) that had been gradually receding with no real reason - NOT brown jelly disease, I just woke up this morning and saw my goniapora had brown jelly ooze around half of its base and was missing almost a quarter of the...

    I was on vacation and the person who was suppose to be watching my tank did a bad job and as such, I ended up losing a fish to ich. But they put in 3 new fish into that tank and those three new fish are not showing any signs of ich at all. I was told by the LFS that I still needed to treat the...

Against...

    ICH I can honestly say, that I'm not overly freaked out...at least not yet. I've read on different forums about hypo, additives and garlic. I have come to the conclusion that there really isn't a conclusion. When I first set up my take I took some recommendations and started dosing. After...

    Hi guys, This is my first time posting in a forum ever and am after some opinions. So I purchased an ocellaris clown (TR - I think) and had it by itself for about 2 months without issue. I then bought it a smaller wild boyfriend and both seemed fine, they would swim together but the new one was...

    Just wanted to strike a conversation on Ich. It seems that all of the folks in the hobby deal with this at one point in time or another. Maybe we can start a dedicated thread here in PHD for a guide to the problem. Ich is not the best in the world, but can be delt with rather easily if one...

    I have been noticing that in the past week a red algae is starting to grow on the glass of my aquarium, the sand, and the rocks. I'm thinking that it's probably not a good algae, but I could be wrong. I can try to post pictures of what it's looking like so far if it will help. If the algae does...
