I have a 20 gallon tank that has been set up for about 6 months and have been having great success with soft corals so I decided to pick up a trumpet coral and chalice frag 2 days ago. The trumpet seems happy but the chalice looks concerning. I know they don't like a lot of light while they adjust so it is at the bottom of my tank out of the direct light from my led lights (they are not particularly strong anyways). right away i noticed a little bit of brown discoloration on the side of the coral. over the couple of days I've had it the brown area seems to have become more distinct although no skeleton is exposed. I know there's a lot of variables at play (water params, parasites, lighting, handling) but what I want to know is whether this is a sign of a serious problem. The brown spot hasn't really progressed noticeably in the last day so is it a cause for concern? Although I do want to know why this happened I'm more concerned with just knowing what is happening and how worried I should be.
Hey everyone, for starters I have a 20 gallon high with only 1 fish (Firefish goby). After some time (month and a half) had passed after setting up the tank, me and my girlfriend decided to add an ocellaris clown from the local petco. Yay! All seemed well after acclimation, and introduction. It's worth mentioning I did not quarantine this fish, dip it, or anything besides acclimation. I know what you're going to say, and I now have a 10 gallon quarantine tank setup lol. I had the fish for roughly 4 or 5 days when I noticed a white/faded spot near the tail, it got progressively worse and spread slightly on the other side of the fish. After quarantining and dipping the fish and medications, I lost the clownfish about 3 days later. I know brook and oodinium are relatively quick killers, and it definitely didn't look like ich, and it didn't really resemble velvet. As a matter of fact, it MOST resembled oodinium, but the fish lasted too long I feel like.. Any thoughts?? Water parameters stayed in check the entire time with ammonia staying below 0.5ppm. Thanks in advance! -Connor
So I got two hermit crabs a about a month maybe two months ago. Everything fine one was really active the other just lazed around. About a week ago the active one started changing shells. He tried three or four of them in the span of a couple days but ended up back in his old shell. I came in today and he was out of his dead. I don’t know what could of caused him to die. I have everything how it should be and the other one is doing just fine. He is even more active not by much he still just lazes around but he is outside his little house more. What could have caused him to die?
Hey yall so I finally got my innovative marine 20g and I moved all the stuff from my old 20L to the new one. Problem is all the rock that I have in there is already cycled and I have fish and corals. I really want to change the aqua scape and the current rock I have in there is not achieving the look I want. So question is is what should I do? Try and buy live rock from my local shop( already has coralline algae on it) and put it in? my best option in my head right now is to buy coralife rock and try to cycle them in a bucket? If i I went with the live rock, I would transport in some salt water but would I need to cure them further or would they be ok to put in?
