In the bag. They had a heat pack in there but the bags didnt feel warm enough .. before I ordered the frags I did talk to a lady there and she seemed super sweet I bet they will just give me store credit or something..

Looks like nice additions! Most vendors are flexible when it comes to DOA or even bleached frags.

 

Whats the cam? Quality looks great!

Just a cheap 30 dollar one from amazon.. does look pretty decent quality so far.. has a hard time with the blues like every camera lol

I mean, there IS still slight flesh and a polyp here and there on that frag it looks like.  It's a crapshoot, but I definitely wouldnt chuck it at all.  Atleast not until it is good and rock colored.

Well damn I have this yellow eye kole tang. Love this fish. Been fine for a few months then all of a sudden seems like he might be getting sick.. normally he is out swiming around picking the rocks . Last 2 days I have only seen him once. Hasn't even been out if I try and feed him.. the one time I did see him he was non stop opening and closing his mouth kinda like when a fish feeds but slower.. when I saw him it was only briefly and before the lights came on, I didnt see any spots or signs of ick and what not.. kinda stumped.. hope he doesn't die!!! Any ideas??

I got one of those mini kegs of Heineken a couple weeks back and forgot about it until tonight. Put the tap on and it's literally 100% foam.  😞

Whoops. Sorry weikel... thought this was the lounge. Didnt mean to muddy up your thread.

Well shit my kole tang died last night. Kinda weird don’t know what happened.. only thing I did was add a banngi cardinal the on the 27th , but he was looking good I even had him in my biocube for 3 weeks for observation.. luckily the tang floated out of the rocks and I was able to remove him. Didn’t see any white flakes or spots so I dunno wtf happened. I did read that someone had their kole tang get a piece of gravel stuck in it mouth , maybe that happened I did my little guy picking off the sand lately..

So I am a freak about testing the params of my tank but was slacking off on testing mag.. i waited like a month to test and man it dropped from 1300ish to 900ish.. so over a week i dosed it up. Well come to find out my red sea test kit was jacked it was about a year old at the time an about time for a refill.  Long story short I should have known my mag wouldnt drop that fast but now with a salfert test kit I am reading like 1500.. 

 And that was after a 24 percent wc this weekend so I am sure the mag was higher. Anyone know if the high mag could have killed my tang? And what problems could high mag cause??

I have no clue if that could have done it or not. 

Based off you saying its mouth was open, I would guess not.

My bad must have missed this post .. I ended up with a melanurus wrasse.. hoping he will eat any pests that might make it into my tank...🤞

So that little birds nest coral I got online(the one that was pretty bleeched) it seems to be doing ok all the little polyps are out but on the very tips of the coral there is a little algae growing on them. It's weird bc so far I haven't had much algae in the tank. So is it bad to have a little algae on this coral ? Should I try and snip it off ???

 

Not a sps guy so you peeps will have to help a guy out😁

I would leave it.  If the coral is healthy it will regrow over that dead area.  Maybe take a toothbrush and lightly brush off the algae.  Looks like the coral is starting to color back up for ya.

Yup. I'd leave it. If it gets long and stringy you can pull it off but otherwise I'd leave it be.
