    Tahatian (spelling) LR for $5.00 a lb. Or Fiji LR for $4.50 a lb. I dont really care about the price---which is actually better for a reef?

    Ok I just got some live rock from a fellow reefer. It has tube worms on it. many many little tiny ones. I thought about just getting a stiff wire brush to them. Is this the most humane way to do it.

    I've had these two majano looking things on my rock for the last 4 months. They have not spread anywhere but I think they are stinging my zoos. Are they majanos? They are really pretty and i hate to get rid of them but you have to do what you have to do.

    I've had this monti cap since Jan. 07 During it's growth I've noticed 2 branches growing from the plates. Is this normal? I don't see any of these on any one elses pics. Jan. Apr. Dec. Dec. In this pic you can see one branch real good. The other is just left of the right one.
