  1. I'm pretty new to all of this. I had freshwater tanks for a while, many years ago, but didn't really understand the hobby and I didn't take the time to learn. I've always wanted a salt water tank, but stayed away because I was afraid of the the time and money commitment. A friend of mine owns a pet store. For years he's been trying to get me into the hobby because I'm always hanging out at his shop looking at his saltwater stuff. In December he finally got me. He gave me a Coralife 29 biocube. Oh boy, I had no idea what I was in for. It's been just under 6 months and it has been a hell of roller coaster, both good and bad. There's a lot to recap in just 6 months, but I'll start with where I am now. Then I'll recap everything I can recall going through/doing along the way to this point. Hopefully others can make use of all of the things that have and have not worked well for me. Attached is what my tank looks like as of April 8, 2018.

    HELP! Possible coral bleaching?

    So I recently picked up a torch and a favia for my 12.5 gallon tank. After a while I noticed the torch lose color very quickly, and begin to not extend much at all, and now I’m starting to notice the favia lose its green color on the top, but it still hasn’t it on the sides which are shaded from the light, is this fixable? All of my other vitals are doing well, but as you can see below, these two seem to be struggling.
  3. I added a Torch coral several weeks ago. As soon as it started opening up and extending, both of my Picasso clowns start trying to make it their home. It was a decent sized frag with three heads when i got it, but it was still a frag and much too small to handle just the smaller clown, let alone both. As it got bigger and extended more, they really started hanging out around it full time. Since it wasn't big enough to swim through, they would swim under and around it, trying to hide. Then they started pushing out the sand around it, trying to burrow lower under it. It's on a basic frag plug so of course the thing starts leaning and moving around because these two idiots are like two full grown cats fighting over the same kids shoebox. After a week or two of straightening it regularly I decided to make it more stable. I removed the plug stem and glued the base to a piece of ceramic tile that gave it a much wider base. The torch is doing really well now with the new stability. What i've noticed the past week or so, is that both clowns have scrapes/discolorations all over. No bleeding, nothing looks severe, but they definitely have minor injuries. Watching their behavior I can only surmise that the rubbing, nudging, and swimming through the torch they are doing is actually causing abrasions from the skeleton and frag plug. I don't think it is burn marks from getting stung because it doesn't really match the type of injury others have described with sting/burn marks. In the included picture you can see spots in the white areas that are slightly darker. Those colorations weren't there before they started messing with the torch. They're too dumb to stop doing it, so should I be doing something different to help the situation? Anyone else experience this? How did it turn out in the long run?

    What torch is this?

    I've had this torch for 5.5 months. I love it, but it has to go. It has already split into 2 heads and the tentacles are 2x as long as when I got it (was assured they wouldn't get longer). I'd like to know what kind it is so I can try to get a little bit of my money back. Orange-ish tentacles, lighter tips, bright green mouths. No matter where I put it, it finds a way to go against the current and sting my duncan and alve. Soon it will be in range of my acan. I need the real estate. My pretty: This is the crap I'm dealing with right now:

    Too much flow??

    Hey guys, so i treated myself to my first coral today, it’s a torch coral. So I acclimated him and dipped him and what not and then placed him in my tank. Do you think this is to much flow? He was receded when I pit him in the tank, then started to come out to see what was going on. He has now receded even more, this is probably due to one the other inhabitants getting a bit too close! He did seem to be happy just swaying in the current, but I could be wrong and he may need to be moved. Any feedback would be great ?

    Thought I would start a thread on my tank. Its been running for about a year and a half now. I've recently sold off most of my stock because I've decided i just want to do a Euphyllia dominant tank. This thread will be where I post update photos as well as brief updates on the status of the tank for my future reference.

  8. Looking for frags preferably when it comes to the Frogspawn and Torch coral. When it comes to coloration I’m not to keen on green.

    Torches losing color:(

    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!

    Will LPS sting LPS

    Hello all, Im striving to have a pico tank full of lps euphyllia and one small zoo colony. I am wondering if I will be able to pack torches hammers and frogspawn closely together without a coral warfare going on. If not, can I put the same corals together? For example hammer next to hammer, or torch next to torch? Any comments are appreciated!!:)
  11. I came home tonight and my Euphyllia Torch was very retracted and spitting out what looks like long strands of dark brown algae. The mouth on one of the heads looks like it has melted away and the space where the small mouth used to be is about the size of a quarter. The strands are long and look like algae. The coral looked really good and healthy only 5 hours ago. There is nothing around the base, and it doesnt look bubbly/jelly like but like long strands of dark algae. Is this brown jelly disease? If so, what do I do? What are the odds it survives? What other corals could it spread to? (I have Xenia, Zoas, Duncan, Leptastrea, Montipora Setosa, Riccordea, cyphastrea) Pictures Attached: the bottom one is the head where the mouth looks like it has melted away. THe long dark strand is what I am talking about, it has spit out a couple of these in the 20 min since Ive gotten home Other tank notes: Ammonia =0, Nitrites= 0, Nitrates= 0. I added the monti setosa 2 days ago. I did a 30% Water change 2 days ago, fed the 2 clownfish and the corals red sea reef energy earlier today. I have an outbreak of red slime algae in the tank but it has been down on the sandbed not near the euphyllia.

    Torch good neighbor for my Hammer?

    Just picked up the three headed torch coral yesterday. I initially had it on a rock shelf, but wanted to have it closer to my hammer. I read a bit and there seems to be some mixed feedback on whether they can be next to each other. In the pic, you'll clearly see the torch isn't fully extended since i just moved it. What do you think? Too close?
