Hi everyone, I am new to this whole reefing thing and am enjoying all the gains I have made so far. I just noticed these things growing out of the octospawn (euphyllia). I haven’t really noticed it before because it is at the back of the tank and I figured I would do a wellness check on it. Anyone seen this before? Is it just growing more? Something to worry about? The thing looks healthy and is thriving so I am not too concerned more just curious. thanks in advance
Hello everyone, so due to a incredibly rushed move I was forced to break down my fusion 10 and diy 25 😞 so two days here I decided to start a new tank! There’s a lot of local stores here and I amazingly saw a 45p and just had to have it when I saw. Anyways the equipment is a bit bare bones 1 aquaclear 30 1 aquatop 50w 1 nanobox tide I was able to take with me 11 pounds dry LR 10 pounds live sand ive decided to use dr Tim’s fishless cycle method and have been following that dosing with the ammonium chloride. Until the cycle is over I only have a sponge but plan to use purigen as well. Possibly red seas supplements or some other phosphate removal to correct water parameters from SW from the store. The next thing im thinking of is making a stand to house either a small sump to use Lily pipes to hide equipment or an ATO and reservoir, as evaporation is incredibly fast in Phoenix compared to Memphis. My planned inhabitants will most likely be no fish. As for corals, I’m wanting to keep a euphillia dominated tank. Possibly a couple other mushroom or lps. I’m currently looking at a large group of sexy shrimp with a couple other small critters like hermits and snails. I am also wanting to seed the tank with copepods but unsure what cultures I should be looking at? Is there any recommendation? Anyways here are the pictures of the tank so far! 7/23/18 thank you for any comments or advice!
Hey Nano reef! So long story short, due to a long distance move to phoenix via plane, I have been forced to break down all my tanks, and sell my corals and fish. while I was selling my coral, I had noticed while I was getting ready to sell a coral, about a 1/4" from my octospawn, I saw 1 of its little tentacles on the ground, I know it wasnt nipped or injured, and the tentacle still has it's coloring well fast forward 24 hrs, and none of the scavengers ate it overnight, and it still has it's color, has anyone heard of this happening? I assume it cant split from that and I have no idea how the tentacle dropped. thanks in advance!
