    Brown Mushrooms

    Hello all I've had my tank set up for over 3 years now. I keep seeing these dark brown with light green bumps popping up all around my Trumpet coral with 31 heads. They are slowly pushing the heads down. I know yawl are going to want pictures. The problem being, I don't own an under water...

    Baby snails maybe???

    I have all kinds of these little white round dots with antenna. They are about half the size of BB for a BB gun, or the size of a pellet for a 14 gauge shotgun. They are on my black back part of the tank and on the glass all over. I can knock them off very easily and they sink. I called my lfs...

    Another Tank

    I'm buying a 14gl Oceanic Bio Cube with a 70 watt metal halide w/stand Saturday. This is my first cube. Back in the day, you shouldn't start a sw tank with less than a 75 gal. tank. Now, give me a thimble and I will give you a sw aquarium back LOL!!! Anyway, how about any ideas on...

    Has anyone had Bartlett Anthius spawn?? Both male and females are fanning the eggs. Now what? The internet only says; It's almost impossible for the fry to survive.

    Anemone Problem

    My tank has been set up with corals and fish. I bought 2 Bubble Tip Anemones/Peach tip and Rose tip. Both died within 5 days of being in my tank. I bought them from two different stores and they both said that my tank was too young to add anemones. Years ago I put Carpet and Sebae in a...

    Well now, I was informed by the guy that put in my RO and Soft water unit told me that her connected the soft water unit to the RO. So, now I have soft water in all taps. That was stupid to connect both, so why have the separate faucet for the RO if it's the same water in a 3 gallon tank? His...

    I just discovered that my RO and soft water feed in together. Bottom line is; I have double trouble. Without costing me $200.00 plus, what should I do?? I am not a water drinker per se, so I don't need the RO water for drinking. So, for now I have to shut the soft water off, drain the...

    I live in Albuquerque, NM and it's a mile high. Denver is most notable for being a mile high. Anyway, I'm having a hard time putting my corals at the right level of my reef. I can tell pretty much that they are not happy where I have put them most of the time. I also know they don't like...

    New Guy

    Hello fellow Aquarists My last tank in the 90's was a salt water 240g predator tank. I now have an 80g Nuvo reef tank. I am somewhat starting over with my salt adventure. I like the no bio balls and extra tanks needed to run my skimmer and still have room to put a UV in, which I did...
