  1. Updated FTS 8/21/2020 Hey Everyone ! Newish to the hobby here , have set up a few pico tanks prior to this one , one 5 gallon and one 2.5 gallon . I figured now I would upgrade to the IM 20g peninsula 😍 Got a great deal on this used tank my LFS had just taken in off trade, came home cleaned it up made it look brand new! Now finally I’ve gotten around to setting up the tank after the holidays. What I have so far : IM 20g peninsula MightyJet 326 gph return pump Cobalt 75w Heater Current USA Orbit Dual pro IC LED bluetooth ( replaced with Ai prime 16hd 8/14/20 ) Current USA 660 wave pump Live rock Fiji pink substrate added so far update 8/22/20: 2 ocellaris clown fish ( Charlie & Clarissa) 1 six line wrasse ( Walter ) 3 small blue hermit crabs tiger conch ( Connie ) 1 nassarius snail 3 bumblebee snails yellow colony polyp Duncan toadstool leathers RFA GSP pink waving hand anthelia pipe organ Now to wait for the tank to cycle .. trying to cycle naturally with the live rock. Any suggestions on if this is the best way? If not what are best products to use to speed up the process ? Also wanted suggestions/ feedback on what everyone thought about the rock work ?
  2. If you read the title, I am not paraphrasing. I've had this duncan colony for roughly 2 years, and for more than 6 months, this coral has not opened or even come close to fully opening during this time span. The coral has been through two different tanks (a jbj 28g LED nano cube and then transferred to a jbj 45 gallon). I've tried changing light parameters, water parameters, positions, flow (all within large spans of time because quick changes can shock the coral) but I've had little results. The closest I've gotten to "open" was a slight protrusion from the skeleton, with a few tentacles showing up (Happened after a water change, so there is something in the water that is bothering it in my opinion.) I've also noticed a few aiptasia anemones appearing, so I'm wondering if one is wedged underneath the coral and is stinging it. The flesh of the coral still looks good, full neon green color. I'll post a photo of the colony a little later, and I'll list my current parameters (Currently high because I've been changing my dosing amounts in accordance with the duncan, only been doing this for roughly 3 weeks), as well as my tankmates, equipment, etc. Any help would be appreciated, and thanks for stopping by. Tankmates: 1 Bonded pair of Clownfish (Ocellaris & Black Photon) 1 Yellow tail damsel Various crabs & snails 1 large green/red trachyphillia 1 large elegance coral 2 small acan colonies 1 large kenya tree 5 blue mushroom colony 1 green/purple tip bubble anemone 1 medium frogspawn colony Equipment: 45 Gallon JBJ cube tank Radion XR15 (set to 60% max light, fast growth standard setting, primarily a blue spectrum) Aquamaxx HOB skimmer Dosing 2 Part B-ionic & Magnesium (currently changing dosing, but most recent schedule is 2ml of both calcium & alkalinity parts 3 times a day every 3 days) Basic ceramic rings, sponge, bio ball mechanical filtration. 2 - 264 gph pumps Parameters: Temperature: 78 Fahrenheit Salinity: 1.026 pH: 8.3 Calcium: 490 Alkalinity: 8.9 Magnesium: 1290 Nitrates: <.25 Phosphates: ~0 Ammonia: 0
  3. Hello. So I noticed my Duncan eating the shedding from my purple whip gorgonian and am curious if it is toxic or if it would cause any issues for my Duncan? This Duncan eats everything it can catch. I would hate to see it get sick.

    is my dunkan ok or not

    5 days ago. I got a duncan with about 8-10 heads. but in my tank, only 3 polyps fully extend. and the rest sightly open. Im not sure if their sick and i hope because all the ones clozed bave baby polyps growing. my ph levels and nitrate etc are fine though. and my other coral (an acan) is thriving. I never touchted the magfloat to clean algae and they slowly extend a bit more but not fully. is it ok ( I know duncans are moody). i hope it is because it is my centerpiece. please tell me

    Duncan coral brown slime?

    Hello, A couple of days ago i noticed a whitish slime around one of my duncan heads and it was closed up. There was a snail hanging around there so i thought it was some snail slime. I blew it off with a turkey baster but today it is back. I did some Googling and found out about brown slime desiese. Can anyone confirm that is what this is? If so i guess i need to remove that head?
