    This came up a couple days ago, and I wasn't so concerned but I just found another one on a cerith so I'm worried enough to start an actual thread for it. I'm a new mom, so you know how it is ;) It's like a hard barnacle right by his face that has a part go in and out of it in a fast, steady...

    My tank is over two years old and since the set up I have had a piece of live rock that had these hard Spirally Tubes on it in the tank. This is my first tank and at the time I never thought anything of it. Well, they have spread all over and are growing on my Candy Coral and Frogspawn stalks...

    Hi y'all, I recently acquired a second feather duster and put it in my 2 gallon pico. He was fine for the first couple of days, then I found him on the sand outside his tube. He didn't lose his crown or anything, just left his tube. This afternoon I noticed he had split himself in two! :eek...

    I have these white tube looking worm things starting to grow on one of my rocks. Not sure what it is...? I've attached a picture hoping someone could identify it, and how to treat it.

    I just bought my first reef tank, a used 90 gallon. Ive noticed a couple things that I am not sure what they are. The pics aren't that great but just ask questions please. One of them is like white tubes on the rock and sand, but I don't think they are tube worms, because I have never seen...

    Hello TRT! I was so proud of my beautiful duster who seemed so happy and was growing so big and overnight he decided to leave his tube that was on top of the sanded and headed out the bottom of his tube crown first. His crown was deflated and like I said sticking out the opposite end of his tube...

    Okay I am new to salt water tanks. All three pictures are of the same one, but I have ten, most so small they can barely be seen. This is my biggest one, and it is only about 1/4 inch including the tube. It does retract into the tube, but the smaller ones are too small to see a tube. I just...
