  1. Hello, I bought this frag and I donÂ’t know what it is. The guy at the pet shop told me twice but his accent was strong and it sounded like he said apec but when I got home and typed it up I couldnÂ’t find anything. Thanks in advance!Â
  2. Hi, was wondering if anyone can help me ID this coral? Thanks in advance!
  3. https://youtu.be/8j8xSB-VREU If you want see 5 corals great for beginners look no further!
  4. So I came home and my fungia has a random red mushroom in its mouth. Will this hurt my fungia? Or should I just let nature take its course?
  5. Hello all! I am asking for help concerning my torch corals loss of color. I have 3 branching torch corals next to each other that caught my eye at the LFS. But it seems as though the corals looked much more vibrant at the LFS and then once placed in my tank, they lose their vibrancy and start to take on a blander and more fleshy skin color. I am testing everyday for CA ALK MG as well as the ammonia nitrite nitrate ph and everything is close to perfect. I have maintained these stable water parameters so I don't believe this is the cause. I am using a kessil A80 tuna blue over this 2.6 gallon fluval spec 3 aquarium. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING????? Any comments are appreciated! Thankyou!
  6. Hey everyone. I have a question about everyone's luck with coral beauty angel fish and coral. A few of my coral (blue acro, orange montipora digitata, and fuzzy millepora) never have polyps extended but others like my birdsnest, hammer coral, and rock anemone are doing great and constantly showing full extension. Today I saw my coral angle take a quick nip at my blue acropora and I realized that my issue could just be the coral beauty. I usually feed my fish daily but sometimes it's every other day. Is the fish likely the problem here? This was my first time seeing this behavior but it would make sense. Is it normal for fish to go after some corals but not all? Ultimately I am trying to figure out why some coral are thriving and others are just surviving and I think I may have found the culprit. Tank params: Alk 10.4 Mag 1440 Ph 8.2 Calcium 440 Nitrates ~ 0 Thoughts?
  7. Hi Nano-Reef world! I have posted before about my trials and tribulations with my Biocube 32 gallon. Since starting my tank the first of September, I have had some obstacles and was becoming discouraged for awhile, but just kept positive and continued to educate myself on anything I could possibly read. I've had some fish die, a broken heater, diatom, green hair algae, salinity swings, a diamond goby that disappeared, an angel with a cloudy eye.. and... I think that's about it.... I wanted to give an update about my tank today! Currently: this is what I have: - 2 Ocellaris clowns (one is more bright than the other) - these guys are champs. I'd reccomend them to ANYONE starting a new tank. - 1 Coral Beauty angel - I bought her to replace my flame angel. From my experience, these are very timid fish at first... she hid behind my rocks but when movement vibrated the tank she'd swim right back behind the rocks. She grazes on my live rock all the time. Now she is all over the tank. I feed her sponge food and she loves it. Just give them time to acclimate. - About 20 blue legged hermits with extra shells - I believe 4-5 Nassarius snails (I have lost some due to crabs eating them for their shells........) - 3 Emerald crabs - 4 Trochus snails I have two corals: one Green Button Polyp rock and one Pulsing Xenia ( please correct me if I'm wrong) My pulsing xenia has DOUBLED in size since I put it in about a month and a half ago. My polyp opens when the lights are on and I have noticed a little growth. I wanted to add some Kenya trees or some frags? I wanted to give a shoutout to people who are new in this hobby - Do. Not. Give. Up! You will make some mistakes - it is a long learning process. Any thoughts of anything I should add luvestock wise? Thanks all! Happy Holidays!
  8. Hey guys, can i put sps corals on my top rock?? See the pic! i have an Ai Prime HD. Lighting wont be an issue, parameters are steady, tank is maturing. But my main concern is the placement of the coral.. is it too close to the light? Too far? I've never had sps before so i need some advice.. My overall goal is to have euphylia and lps at the bottom/middle of the tank, i'm going to have a full zoa rock, and sps on top! let me know your thoughts and opinions!
  9. I am planning on getting mostly softies, (zoas, mushrooms, xenia, kenya tree, etc..), with a few LPS (hammer, frogspawn, maybe blasto). I have decent par (levels in pic below), and was wondering if they are enough to sustain those corals light-wise. 400 Par @ 2" 108 Par @ 8" 50 Par @ 16" P.S ik blastos are lower light, will keep towards bottom.
  10. Hey guys, can you give me your inputs as to what glue or coral epoxy you guys use to stick your coral to the live rock? i need something that will stick very well but at the same time something that will be able to be removed incase i decide to rescape my setup! thanks again guys
  11. So I picked up an Evo 5 while I was out picking up a spec III for my girlfriend this weekend. This is my first attempt at saltwater and a reef so bare with me. I am already in the progress of putting together a 40g breeder as well but I haven't gotten around to cutting the bean animal overflow yet. But back to the Evo, I created this thread to track my progress and share my experiences. Any ideas, suggestions or comments are extremely welcome. I am currently going to run the evo stock until I see that upgrades are necessary for what I am wanting.

  12. I placed this frag about a week ago and have noticed these clear-ish guys coming from the coral. Are they normal? Pest?
  13. For the past week I have not seen my gsp come out, I did notice some hair algae growing on it and figured that was the cause. Next thing I noticed was it seemed like my clown was picking the hair algae off of the gsp. I ended up cleaning the algae off the gsp yesterday and it started to come out finally but then it happened, the clown woke up and swap to it and started picking at it causin it to go back in. Has anyone had this problem before and if so how do I deal with it?
  14. Today I went to my local fish store and found a couple of corals. The employee told me this (In the picture) was a type of brain coral but when I got home I did some research and it looks more like a scoly coral. If anyone can identify this coral for me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. (Got it for $40, did I get overcharged?)
  15. Hey everyone, Im returning tot he hobby after a 10 year hiatus. I am currently living in an apartment with residents underneath me, I travel semi often for 5-7 days and really want the enjoyment of a small reef tank back in my life. What is the best way to go about this? I am figuring Id need to have a sump in case of a power failure to not cause a flood, and automation for lights and feeding. Possible a float switch in another bucket, Any advice here? equipment, lighting for SPS? Is an aqua clear remora still a good protein skimmer. Help bring me up to speed please!
  16. Hi all, I want to start this off by saying I have never owned an aquarium before but have recently been inspired to try one out. The type that I'm interested in would be a <5 gallon tank that would only house one type of coral. Think of it as a plant in a pot. After looking on the web for quite sometime I stumbled upon these builds: Ecoreef Zero - https://reefbuilders.com/2011/09/29/ecoreef-zero-population-1/ Zero Reef East - https://reefbuilders.com/2011/12/17/reef-east/ I'm trying to figure out what the best way to go about this build would be. Right now I figure the tank, lighting, and a heater are easy to get. I haven't decided on a type of coral yet and am very open to suggestions as the selection is enormous (Seriously I have no idea how you can wrap your heads around the choice. I'm impressed!). It sounds like I need to get some nitrifying bacteria onto the filter to start, and from what I was told I would want to keep some live rock in the tank before the coral and let the filter absorb what it needs before removing the live rock and cleaning the tank. I think that covers most if not all of my questions. I would love to hear back from the community to see if I can get some advice and pointed in the right direction. Thanks in advance, you guys have one of the coolest hobbies I have ever seen and I hope to get into it more one day.
  17. I am hoping this is grown of my frog spawn. In video it is the white area with the tentacles. It is only visible at night when frog spawn heads are closed and do not seem to be bothering the coral at all. In fact coral looks the best it has since I added new power head. What are your thoughts I can not add the video so hope the picture helps. it moves in current and has similar translucence's a the main heads. I need to observe it more but the growth appears to be open with lights off and closed lights on.
  18. What else should I add to this tank, just ordered a light from @DaveFason so I can finally start Adding some better coral, wanted to know what you guys think I should throw in there! Definitely needs to stack more rocks
  19. Hello I just picked up my first coral frag (green star polyp) and was wondering if and how can you remove the coral from the plug.
  20. Hello Everyone, I've been a member on here for awhile and had another build thread but i thought it would be time to start a new one for this little tank I have own over the past year. This is my first time keeping a tank under 30 gallons so I thought I would share with everyone my experiences with this tank. IM Nuvo Fusion 10 Gallon tank Skkye LED Light InTank Filter Floss Basket BRS ROX 0.8 Carbon & GFO Aqueon Pro 150 watt Heater Hydor Koralia 240 gph powerhead Water Bottle ATO (LOL) Current Inhabitants 2 Clownfish Yellow Watchman Goby 1 Rock Flower Anemone Serpent Starfish Hermit Crabs I will be updating my thread shortly, I have a few pics of the progression I need to upload to my loader.
  21. Hello everyone I have a bitter sweet problem, I was given three green mushrooms about a year ago from my lps. Initially I thought of propagation due to wanting more. However I watched videos on YouTube stating to wait and when the time is right they will multiply on there own. Well they did and now they won’t stop, in a month I went from three to 15, now there’s about 30-40. They are even getting to the point where they are falling off the rock and floating to locations I didn’t intend them to be. Has anyone experienced this problem?, if so what did you do?
  22. This frag of frogspawn I got has this thin branch as indicated in the pic. I broke them when I got it because I thought they do not belong to the coral. It grew out a little bit after a month. Can anyone ID it? Is it a pest? It is very thin when grow out and you can easily break it if you want. I don't think it is a worm because it is not soft tissue and does not move.
  23. I bought a new bit of live rock and found these on it, they around the size of a 10 cent piece, orange in colour but green under actinic lights, are they fine or a pest and get them out right now? Sorry for pic quality. TIA
  24. Hey Nano reef, Just a quick question about placement of corals, So I have had a New Nanobox light running for about a week now, and am wondering when Can I start bringing my pocillopora up from the sandbed, and how high should I go at a time? currently it is about 18" from the light, and am wondering if I can move it to the top of my rocks now which are ~12" from the light or to put it halfway up the rock(~15" from light) and wait another week before to the top? Anyways just wondering how do people do it here on the forums and the best tips for it? Would not like to stress the coral too much during this, and thank you to everyone who replies
