    Problem with Colt Coral!

    My Colt coral has taken a turn for the worse over night! It looks like it is decaying right before my eyes. There have been no sudden changes in the water chemistry, temperature or salinity. It was close to a Duncan coral that may have stung it. Should I remove this coral?

    Sick Morning Dove Found

    My wife and I just found a morning dove in our backyard that is very lethargic and apparently sick. It's alive, but doesn't respond much to our touch. We have been able to examine it and have found no physical problems. Is there anything we can do to help it? It's heartbreaking.:(

    API Nitrate Test

    The instructions say to add 10 drops of bottle 1, shake, then shake 2nd bottle for 30 sec and add 10 drops then shake the vial for 1 minute. Why all the mixing? Is it because of the viscosity of the reagents, or some other reason?
