    No one can stay indifferent to a beautiful saltwater tank stocked with stunning corals – it’s like having a glimpse into the ocean right there in your living room. While many aquarists opt for soft corals because of their beautiful looks, the sheer variety of choices, and generally undemanding...

    Does anyone have any idea why one of my zoanthids is starting to bleach? My parameters are all good(my nitrate goes back and forth between 1-5 and pH 7.8-8.0) Maxspect razor r420r LED lights. Also in the pictures you can see that its only visible when the polyps are closed but it doesn't open up...

    I am going to be building an led light fixture soon, but I want to know if the stock led lighting is enough for some softies and zoas for now. I have a 10 gallon nano, currently a fowlr, which is the tank in question. Here is a link for the current led light im referring too. I can't really find...

    Hello, everyone! I am planning on getting a zoanthid pretty soon and would like to know any extra tips on taking care of them. For example, water flow, placement, lighting, food, etc. I won't get any until I know for sure how to take care of them! Thanks for the help!

    I have a 30 gallon tank I want to house some Zoanthids in. I need help with the lighting. Would this be sufficient?: Coral life 50/50 fluorescent lamp. (24in) I am in the early stages of research so I'm still struggling with the lighting and all the terminology.

    I bought a rock with probably 40 zoanthids on it. I'm watching them dissapear almost over night. I have maybe 20 left. My other frags are doing fine, it's just this rock. There is this brown stick looking mess around some of them and I'm not sure what that is either. I did remove a fiddler crab...

    Hey guys, I know there's not much study done for zoa corals, So it's fairly hard for us to tell which ones have more toxin than others. But I'm planning to trade some zoas with a guy and the types are, Eagle eyes, Gold Maul, And blue ones (not much help :o) Well my qoustion is does anyone...

    I am trying to identify what is growing underneath my zoanthid. The picture is a blowup to help show features. Notice there are a couple stalks growing from it which have an opening at the top. It's translucent and one can see the green macro that is underneath it. I am thinking some type of...

    Can you guys tell me if these are Hydroids? If they do I handle this. I've read a hydrogen peroxide and then an iodine dip might work. The zoas are closed and mad. Right now now only a small piece of a frag plug I have split it affected. I can easily remove it.

    Are there any sites that give actual information about zoanthids. There was a link to Coralpedia on another thread, but it just seemed to be an identifier, but I wanted information on their habitat, feeding requirements, lighting, reproduction, etc. I have several different frags and a...

    So as some of you may know I finally got my first few corals and yesterday I got some fire and ice zoanthids. My wife made me get a decorator crab, because she thought it was cool several months ago. He didn't care about any of the corals I put in the tank until I added the zoanthids. He...

    I went to Petco today because they were having 30% off sale. I bought fire and Ice Zoa's for sure.. But it seems like there might be some Eagle Eye Zoanthids in there as well, can anyone confirm?

    I went to Petco today and bought some zoanthids today since they were having a 30% off sale that ends tomorrow. I bought fire and ice zoanthids for sure.. But there seems to be what might appear to be Eagle Eye zoas with it? Can anyone confirm?

    Hey guys I found this pretty neat documentary on coral from Mami. Thought it was something that we should all take a look at. Its 2 videos on YouTube and a lil reading. Its about how Miami was once under water and how if the tides keep rising It could be under again and be one of best artificial...

    I am the guy on forums that just reads other people's post. As matter of fact I have been using this site probably close to a decade and have never used my account much. But today I have decided to share my thoughts. So, I'll start with my current system. It has been running for about 5 years...

    Hey guys, I have posted a few times in this forum about some trouble I am having with my 20g reef. It is getting out of control now and I am infested with a variety of things: LOTS of aiptasia, vermetid snails and hydroids. Tons of amphipods that are the size of a dime or bigger. It is...

    My Zoanthids were doing great. They have been all closed for a couple of days. Does anyone know what would cause this. The fish, anemones and corals all seem fine. All water conditions seem ok.

    Hi guys. I got a 2 month old 20 gallon reef with hundreds of green zoas. I use 2x T5 HO bulbs, zeros across the board (nitrate, nitrite ammonia etc). 1.026 SG. I havent dosed the tank with supplements yet and I think that is what the problem is. I can't post pics right now cause my cell phone...
