  1. I’m running into an issue with a few coral. I’m noticing the sun coral is beginning to bleach out and the acan is almost completely covered with algae. It used to be green but now it’s turning purplish. I tried to put pictures showing before and after. Hopefully you guys can help. Parameters are all zeroed out. 8.4 PH. LEDs are truelumen. No clue what’s going on.
  2. Hi Nano-Reef'ers, My name is Danny Tran and this will be the start of my reefing experience. My goal? To record every success and mistake and lessons learned through this forum. I'm located in Vancouver, BC Canada. A little about me, I'd been a freshwater aquarist for about 4 years, mainly focusing on aquascaping with easy to keep small fish. I've had marble angels, pleco of all types, tetras, and shrimp! I never thought that one day I would start a reef tank. My interest really started when I saw all these beautiful aquariums with amazing colourful corals and very few fish, feeding corals, growing up them, propragating them, it all was so fascinating. I also spent 2 hours reading this CRAZY incident of a bobbit worm taking over an entire aquarium and destroying everything in it's path, here is the link....http://www.michiganreefers.com/forums/advanced-topics/84173-bobbit-worm-chronicles.html So here we go.... I don't have anything in possession yet but I just wanted to begin with a Hello and get your best advice on getting started.
  3. I received a white pom Pom Xenia last Friday from liveaquaria and I noticed there are little pieces of it in my sand bed now. Is it reproducing or do they fall apart? I figured if it was falling apart it would be picked up by the water flow in my tank but they appear to be anchored down.

  7. I received my first online order of coral from live aquaria. It is the soft coral pack they sale. What I didn’t know was that they would come on such large square bases. Does anyone know the best way to cut these?
  8. Hello All! I recently purchased a 2-headed hammer coral frag from a local LFS that I thought would be a perfect addition to my tank. I've had poor luck with hammer corals in the past, as a frag I purchased months ago died within the first 48 hours of purchase. My parameters and every other coral in the tank were fine at that time, so I thought I was just dealt a bad hand. With regards to the frag I want to talk about in this post, I've had this frag for roughly 5 days, and it just doesn't want to open. The flesh doesn't appear to be deteriorating, but the mouths of the coral are agape and just doesn't appear to be in good health. Any help with regards to possible insight and solutions would be greatly appreciated. Tank specs and other inhabitants listed below. Thanks everyone! Tank: JbJ 28 gallon LED nanocube Flow: 2-266 gph pumps (connected to wavemaker that alternates pumps every 30 seconds) Light: 25W of 14K LEDs w/ 4W moonlight LEDs (meant for low-moderate light specs) Parameters: Salinity - 1.026 P.H - 8.2 Calcium - 430ppm KH - 170ppm Nitrate - 0 Nitrite - 0 Ammonia - 0 Phosphates - between 0 and .25 ppm (All parameters except salinity were measured with API kits) Fish: 1 Percula clownfish & 1 Photon Clownfish (Bonded) 1 Male Mandarin Goby 1 Yellowtail Damselfish 1 Purple Dartfish Coral/Invertebrates: Toadstool Leather Elegance Coral Red/Green Trachyphyllia Kenya Tree Coral Pink-tip green bubble anenome various polyps and zoanthids (honestly don't know all of the names) green-tipped pocillopora (hitchhiker frag with green-star polyps, has grown well) I also have a few photos posted of the tank itself and the hammer coral in question
  9. In this tank I have a 3 inch Vlamingii Tang (Who got very distressed when I put her in my 450L reef) so she will be staying put until she gets a bit larger. I also have a Red Scooter Blenny, alongside a Paddlefin Blenny. I have lots of coral, ranging from Wall Hammers, Branching Hammers, Torches, Cornets, Duncans & Aussie Duncans. Kenya Trres & Colt Corals, Toadstool Corals, GSP & Glove Polyps. And my all time favourite Goniopora! There are a couple small mushrooms and my FeatherDuster garden too! What would people recommend trying to add to this tank as the only fish who does any swimming is my tang! The other two seem to stay closer to the sand bed or the rock work and aren't as active throughout the day as expected. Any advice or opinions are appreciated.
  10. Found this on the base of my Candy Cane coral I just got over Memorial Day weekend. At first I thought they were tiny baby zoa polyps but upon further investigation (poking it with a stick) it's hard. The pic is a little blurry but it's reddish brown with a baby blue ring. I looked around a bunch on the interwebs but couldn't find anything.
  11. Hello, I have been in the beginning phase of starting a nano reef tank and have been researching corals. And recently I ran into a thing called Palytoxin and it is scaring the crap out of me. I read that only zoanthids carry it but I have also read stories of people getting poisoned from live rock. What corals have the risk of having Palytoxin and how can I make sure any live rock I get is not infected? Thanks
  12. Hi everyone new to the hobby been in it almost 2 months now. SUper excited and im obsessedddddd. Recently got a bunch of coral over the span of 2 weeks and everything is doing AWESOME. But I have a couple questions... Salt hovers around... 1.025-1.026 Water temperature hovers around... 78/79 usually 79.2 to be exact. Lights... Radeon XR15W Pro Gen 4 running the Coral Lab template SPS PHX 14 with greens and reds at 5% from 9AM to 6PM Corals I have are.. Trumpet Coral Favia Acan Ricordea Zoas Blastomussa Kenya Tree Discoma mushroom Alveopora And some type of encrusting coral Im currently spot feeding all my corals every Wednesday/Sunday with all pumps off. Their diet consist of.. A half a tablespoon reef-roids mixed with gut loaded bring shrimp, I squish it just enough for the coral to eat. (Spot fed using 11ML syringe) 5ML of Aquavitro Fuel Red Sea Reef Energy A/B 2.5ML (Just started it today) Poseidon Fury (3,000) OceanMagik Live Phytoplankton (4 species) Nano Brine Live Baby Artemia (500) Not sure what else im missing... Edit: I have a Nuvo 40G, I added refugium into one of my chambers with Cheato, and live rock. Hopefully the Copapods do the dirty in there and replicate! Edit:: Refugium has been going for 2 weeks. Today I added the Copapods. (Cheato is growing)
  13. So, Recently my 6 line wrasse unfortunately died thanks to a spike in my nitrates... This has all been sorted now and many more precautions have been taken to ensure that this is not something that is likely to happen again at all. However, I now have no idea on what I actually want to stock this tank with? I am not a new hobbyist, and I have been keeping marine fish for about 4 years now, with many different tanks.. So I am rather stumped on what to add to this tank... So far I have some Xenia, Hammers, Duncans, A Featherduster & some leathers (Kenya Trees & Toadstools). I am looking to add quite a bit more coral wise to make the tank look like a little reef. But don't know what fish to add! Any advice or comments are appreciated.
  14. Hello guys, Just added a clown pair to my previously coral only setup. I already feed my corals reef roids regularly. This got me thinking about how practical feeding the fish and coral the same thing, in one go, would be. I know a lot of you probably have their own DIY recipe of sorts for feeding the tank. Care to share? My thoughts were something on the line of: - Seafood mix - Garlic - Bit of reef roids (for good measure) Blend and freeze. What are your thoughts?
  15. Hi my tanks been up for about 3 months. Today I noticed these little spots on my rocks. Anybody know what they are
  16. I am going to my lfs on sunday. I am getting some more C.u.c and some corals ?, 1 for my new 1 gal pico and some for my other 5 gal. I want some sort of branching coral thats large, as a centerpiece, the coral I know for sure will be there are varieties of kenya trees and several 1-3 in sps frags. They get new corals everyday. any sugestions??
  17. Hello fellow reefer, I have recently "upgraded" to a 12g (from a 50g), and may I say that I never thought that such a small tank would make me doubt my aquascape so much! I have tried different layouts and settings that initially seem to work, but will eventually fail to feel "right". I'll post photos of them in chronological order, and would love to have some feedback from you guys on what seems to work or not. Thank you!
  18. hi, I got an acan with 2 heads in my nano because its so small. Does anyone know the growth rate of acans so i can put it in my bigger tank
  19. hi, i got a 5 gallon nano that im turning into a reef tank. Any coral ideas that i can add next. got an acan and duncan right now. what coral(s) should i get next
  20. i got a duncan a week ago. a good frag with 9 heads (including babies). however, only 3 head are fully emerged (all heads were open in the store) . the rest are semi open or closed in the pic. is it sick or not. (those have barely opened in a week) He was the last duncan they have and they barely have them. (yet loaded with hammers and torches.) so I dont want it to die or do any emergency fragging. It is also the centerpiece for now. my ph,nitrate etc levels are fine. And my acan coral is THRIVING so i dont think its the water. Dont think my fauna are killing it. Can you guys tell me whats wrong plz. Hope its not sick . Was expensive too. i have a bicolor blenny fireshrimp, ghostshrimp keyholelimpet nasarius snail. large chesnut snail purple sponge. 3 dwarf ceriths a red and pink acan and that duncan
  21. So I did a water change yesterday and siphoned our the sand a little. I did my best to make sure sand wasn’t covering any of the coral but missed a spot on the open brain. My cleaner shrimp was on an area of the coral and I saw some sand on the coral so I moved the sand and found a black spot. Did I just ruin my open brain? tried my best to get a pic but the blue lights can be tricky.
  22. Hi everyone, So I got a new favia coral the other day and it was looking fantastic. Now it looks like crap. I was wondering on how a go about and do an iodine dip. Like what to use and what to measurements are. Thank you.
  23. Hello everyone, I decided to buy myself a Japanese leather coral for myself as a college graduation gift. (That's my excuse to the fiancé at least hehe) However, I was not able to find much on their care requirements. for example, im finding that it doesn't seem to like the white spectrum of light. It stayed scrunched up until I turned my white lighting down and went mostly to blues. It seems to be much more sensitive than the other corals I've put in my tank. (Most of them have bounced back in a day or so after being put in the tank.) I don't have a powerful light, just the USA orbit marine lc. does anyone have any care/ acclimation tips they can share with me so I can be sure to keep it healthy?
  24. Hello everyone, I was hoping someone could help me ID this coral,I saw it up at my LFS for just 15 dollars a frag and I figured why not,the guys that work there said they weren’t sure what it was. It’s definitely some kind of encrusting coral,if anyone has an ID on this I would appreciate it,thank you!
  25. I have a favia coral. On the coral are 2-3 of these fan like things that spring out and retract real quick. Hasn’t spread. Just curious if anyone knows what it is. Also the red tubes on that favia. Any ideas? Only on one side of the favia and it’s only two tubes
