  2. "Soft" corals
    my green zoos have seem to shrink in/retract quite a bit... they don't seem dead yet but very close. i was gone for 2 days when this happened. The parameters have tested good (0 nits, phos, and ammonia, pH in check) except my salinity was just a tad high when i got home 1.025 but that was a...

    Since I was finally able to get a positive id on the Kracken, now it is time to move onto something else... starfish. I have a whole lot of starfish in my 75 gallon reef. Most are small white ones that split themselves all the time and I figured that these are Asterinas and am not really...

    I have been pulling asterina stars out of my tank like crazy for the past few weeks because I have suspected that they are eating my zoanthids. As I expected, my zoo colonies have been thriving ever since. Since this isn't really documented anywhere, I have decided to do a little experiment...

    So I was playing with my camera and got a decent shot of one of my zoo colonies. Color is a little washed out but better than the first pics. Need to clean the glass and try to get more pics. The other colony is the same size but to close to the mh to get decent pic.

    What do you guys think are the best non reef related products that are invaluable to your tank? I'm gonna start and say the indispensible turkey baster! :)

    I'm in the process of building a taller stand for my 20 long, and I'm going to re-aquascape when I drain it for the move. I have been moving my coral to my other tanks getting ready for the transfer, and have been freshwater dipping them all. Needless to say I am getting a lots of flatworms and...

    Welp, bad news everyone. I just got back from my weekend trip out of town and sadly...almost everything died. All the SPS have died and only the hardy softies are still striving for their lives. I'm very sad=( I left to Detroit and the AC to my apartment died. The temperature in the apartment...

    I think I have cynobacteria but I can't be sure. I have bubbles forming on some of my LR close to the top of the tank. Some of them are clear, others seem to have a coat of purplish slime on them. I noticed recently that there seems to be a greyish, almost flakey substance on the LR at the...

    The last two nights my skimmer has gone nuts. It is skimming on the dry side during the day. The at night sometime between 10 PM and 4 AM it goes ballistic and completely fills the collection cup. Any ideas what might be causing this? The only thing I have added recently is a rock with about...
