    I don’t know how much was them irritating corals and how much was the levels getting out of whack.

    I am debating over removing most of the rock and starting over with clean rock.

    Not much to say. It has gone down hill. Trying to sort it out. The ich killed the fish . Digitate hydroids took over and levels tanked killing several corals. Reaminingncorals are recovering. Hydroids seem to be receding, but I now have brown covering most of my rock and in the last week or so the brown algae seemed to have become fuzzy. Feeling overwhelmed with thentank these days. =(
  4. Thanks. Just searched google for "digitate hydroids" and the results look exactly like them. Now to read up on them. They keep dislodging and getting blown about until one gets caught on my birdsnest. It causes all the polyps in the area to retract until a day or so after I remove the string off of the colony.
  5. I have seen 1-2 of these in my tank for months and thought nothing of it. But today these things are everywhere I look. They look like a thin hair with bristles on the end. In some cases the bristles end look like they have balls on them. My descriptions are horrible. Here is a video that hopefully is clear enough to shed light. I would like to know what they are and if I need to worry about them. They seem to jerk back into the rocks from time to time.

    I would have guessed the same.

    Day 60 on the birdsnest. Still under stock lighting. Looks like it is spreading on the plug as well.

    Yeah, their are 2-3 in the tank now and I saw them doing that for a few days. We'll see if more show up soon.

    In the middle of another heatwave here and the ChillSollution chiller does not seem to be doing much. Until this week it always kept the tank within 1 degree F of my 78 set point. But with tempt between 98F and 106F I may need to add a fan or maybe get ride of the hood and just deal with evap.
  11. Candy Cane Not Growing

    I have a Neon green Candy cane and is has also not really grown that I can tell. Almost all my other corals have grown. The exceptions are the Candy cane which has either not grown or maybe had the heads shrink and my rainbow monti that just wasted away. Keeping an eye on this thread. I am hoping to get some insight into getting my candy cane to grow. =) Also I see you are also using Aquarimate. I love that app.
  12. Ordered 2 new pieces. Cant wait to get them in my tank.

    So I was trying to get a close up on this orangish thing growing out of the Pavona Maldivensis to figure out what it was when the snail caught my atterntion. Still not sure about the orange critter climbing out of the coral. Definitely some hitchhikers in this frag.
  14. The wife said I have enough corals for now....... but you guys are just down the street. Surely she did not mean no more Legendary Corals. I am loving the Birdsnest I got from you guys. I may have to "accidentally" order a few more from you this weekend. =P
