  1. Thanks!

    Hi, I am newish to corals and reef tanks in general. I mainly wanted to say thanks to the forum members en masse for all the great info that I have found here. I purchased a fungia coral and for a couple weeks it looked amazing, and was so fun to feed. I fed it one day and the next day the mouth stomach area was completely gone and the skeleton was exposed! It was a matter of hours and total annihilation of the center of the coral! After a lot of watching and worrying I looked online and did a lot of reading here and copied a cover for it and then with much experimenting I figured out that it was most likely our very large left handed hermit crab had ripped at the coral to get to the food. Every time I uncovered the coral he hopped on and would start tearing at the coral. I have a 10gallon tank I had not intended for corals and I prepped that one to put the fungia in and started feeding it Goni food under it’s dome every other day, not expecting much, but hoping for a recovery, that was a couple weeks ago and it is regrowing it’s mouth! I noticed it moving sand and detritus outwardly yesterday and moving food inwardly today. I am so thrilled that I might be able to save it. There is noticeable tissue recovery in the mouth/stomach area that was skeleton a short week ago and it started extending its tentacles today. The coral is about 2 inches across and at the worst point the tissue had visibly receded from the center about 1/4 inch in all directions and all there was left was skeleton. Thanks to everyone that gave great info in this forum, a fungia thanks you too 😁.
  2. Fungia Eating a mushroom coral???

    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?
  3. Hello, I have a half-moon 10 gallon Nano reef. The tanks has been running for about 3 months now. I have an API drop test kit for saltwater and all my readings are steady safe. Nitrates hover around 20 ppm. Livestock: i have a black ocelaris clown, an engineer goby, a seahorse (hippo. Erectus), yellow (spotted) mandarin dragonet, a fire peppermint shrimp, 1 horned snail, feather duster, and a margarita snail. corals: a fairly large fungia, green torch coral, 7-polyp green zoas, ~30 polyp red zoas, a quarter sized plate coral filtration: Aqueon quietflow 10 (up to 20 gal.) and Cora life biocube protein skimmer attached to the back panel. The thermometer is set to ~73-74 F. A circulation pump pushing 100 gal/hr lighting: Hipargero Touch Control 30w CREE Nano LED Help I am seeking: all my fish are eating like champs and look healthy. Seahorse eats like a horse without much competition as I send the clown on the food chase and feed the seahorse very directly with a turkey Baster. Luckily for me, my mandarin enjoys frozen mysis and brine shrimp which compliment her constant grazing around the tank for copepods. My trouble pertains to my corals. The torch coral seems to be thriving without problems. My zoas and fungia however have issues opening up. I have been trying real hard to find the right balance of light and 2 part plankton feed but it’s been very difficult. The light I have is adjustable with 5 dimmer settings. I have been keeping it at the lowest setting for no more than 7 hours at a time seeing as anymore causes traces of a diatom bloom happening. I have attached pictures of my tank and would love some advice on how to go about getting my reef to thrive and not just survive. Thanks for your time! Its night time and I turned on the lights briefly for attaching pictures, the torch coral is usually very open and flamboyant.
