    Zoa ID, please?

    Hi, everyone! A friend of mine contacted me for help to ID these two Zoa colonies, if possible. Have any of you seen these morphs before? Any chance anyone out there knows what they're called? 😊 @Murphs_Reef - any ideas? 🤔
  2. I say it's sort of a penensula because I have it arranged to be viewed from the long side like a regular tank. I built this chonk of a stand from 2x4 and it weighs a ton. I moved all stock from my I'm nuvo 10g into this tank. It's running x2 ai prime hd lights with 3d reefing printed shades. The Curent fish is a davinci clown that I've had probly close to idk 5 years. I'm hoping to add another clown maby a mocha davinci or a mocha storm and probly a 6 line wrasse or a royal gramma later on. On the back side it has this rough textured cling on window black out plastic stuff that I velcroed to the back of the tank quite effectively. It actualy looks quite nice. I added a neoprene mat under the tank even although it came with one. Eventualy I'm going to have a custom top on it. I have the in tank filtration cover over the filter section. I took the skimmer from the 10 and my old style intank media basket. This tank is running the mighty jet pump it came with. As you can see everything is still angry with me and the tank is still a bit hazy.
  3. Whats wrong with my zoa. It seems to be melting into a brown mush. I read somewhere that it may be a fungal infection and dipping it in chemiclean will help. A snail pushed it off the plug a month ago but it was looking good and also grew some heads. But its closed since the last 4-5 days and some of its heads have melted.

    New Zoa Identification

    Hello all, I recently added some more Zoas and would like some identification if at all possible. I feel like one of them are some more Gorilla Nipples like the previous one that I purchased.

    Zoa Identification Please

    Hello all, Wasn't sure if I should post this in corals or identification so I'm taking a shot here. Bought my first frag of zoas from the LFS yesterday for $20.00. The employee couldn't tell me the species, so seeing if anyone here can help. Also...what are those orang bulbs that are with my zoas?? I'm hoping that they will open up more here in the next few days! TIA, KP
  6. Welcome to my tank journal! I've been out of the hobby for a few years, life got in the way with living overseas and moving around quite a lot.

    First saltwater build

    Hi, I’m new here, coming from the freshwater side of things. 1st post on nano-reef but I’ve been creeping behind the scenes for a while, soaking it all in, research, research, so much more research. But I’m finally here, got my first salt water tank set up and cycling! Guess what ? It’s a super original tank... no it’s Fluval Evo 13.5, would have rather started with something like a 40 breeder but space and money are tight for that scale, it’s definitely size down but the ease of the Evo is what appealed to me. I know there’s literally 100+ of these threads, but I kinda kicked myself for not starting one when I set up my freshwater tank. So here it is: - AI prime HD -stock pump -VCA Random flow generator -hydor Koralia 240 powerhead -cobalt neo therm 50w heater -inkbird temp controller ITS-308S -XP Aqua duetto ATO -diy eggcrate basket for chamber 1 running filter floss, and a bag of seachem matrix Got about 12lb of the CaribSea life rock and 10lbs of their Fiji sand. the plan is to have a clownfish, a watchman goby and maybe down the line a third fish (purple firefish) and some cuc (trochus, nassirius, cerith, and emerald crab, might add a skunk cleaner or red shrimp but keeping it to two fish) and obviously add some coral down the line, can’t wait to add more colour and movement to this tank! Let me know what you think.

    Please ID zoa eater

    Found this guy on a freshly dipped zoa. When I poked it a bunch of orange lashes flew out and the zoa closed up. Looks like there's another one deeper inside the zoa. Is it an overweight Nudi?

    Zoa Turning Brown

    Does any body know why my zoas are turning brown?
  11. Hello 🖐️, Welcome to my zoanthid sanctuary! I am a novice in reef keeping, but my husband (mirepa) is a veteran and has been helping me along the way! 🥰 Pixel Diary for the tank 😉 : www.instagram.com/zoanthid.sanctuary Some specs: Tank - Aqueon 2.5g Light - Radion XR 15 Pro Gen4 Filter - Aquaclear 20 Water Pump - Koralia Nano His and Hers Dec 09, 2019 Jan 05, 2020 Jan 28, 2020 Went to AquaFest and got a bunch of goodies! March 03, 2020 Realized my tank isn't really equipped for SPS, so I moved the SPS to my husband's tank so they'd have a better life. June 09, 2020 Here are some macro pics of my residents:
  12. I was curious as to why there's so many Zoanthid morphs and colors and sizes even among morphs. I read that there really aren't that many species. Anyone know how or why they're so varied? Here's my source on the only a few species thing, It's mostly supported by genetic studies: https://www.coralbiome.com/2018/09/26/hundreds-of-zoanthid-color-morphs-but-only-a-few-species/

    Another Reefsmart PicoJar

    I recently came across Christopher Marks Pico Jar that really intrigued me to give it a try. My biggest draw back before was dealing with top offs without having any bulky equipment hanging out the side of the jar. Reefsmart developed a light that was integrated into a lid that reduced the amount of evaporation by having a tight seal, and directing the water back into the jar. With seeing how much joy our display tank has brought my wife, I decided this would be the perfect Valentines gift for her desk at work. Steve at reefsmart.com was amazing to deal with, providing tons of hand holding information so get me started with success. I headed out to Target to purchase my 2.5 gallon jar that would house our mini reef. I found that the clarity of the jars varied greatly from jar to jar, and choose the best that I could find. Once I got home I water tested it to see just how clear it was, and decided to head to a different store with more options to have the best view possible. I did however have to accept that there was no perfect jar out there, and settle for one that had the optimal viewing window for about a 130 degrees around the jar. Selecting the jar was the hardest part thus far. I purchased a few different air stone defusers to experiment with, and found that just the air tube itself with no defuser created the largest bubble that created the least salt creep. Other difusers also created micro bubbles that bothered me aesthetically. The other examples that I followed used just the air pump for filtration. I have always approached the hobby by over sizing, and over filtering everything I set up. I opted to put a small internal filter to be able to seed some filter floss from my display tank, as well as create a little more flow. One thing that I found to be pretty cool about the jar was that beings the sides are curved, you can actually hide the equipment on the sides as it obscures the view. The internal filter is a little to large to completely hid, but some coral placement should make it hidden pretty well over time. As for aquascaping I put 2.5lbs of CaribSea Bahamas oolite live sand in the base, but decided to add just under another pound for looks. I was able to find the perfect size rock in my sump and left it to cycle. The first light you see in the tank was a bendable air stone with light that I used to test the clarity, and experiment with the entire back of the jar being bubbles. The back of the jar beings solid bubbles was cool, made a lot of flow, but created a ton of micro bubbles. The 2nd picture is just a extra light that I had that I used for cycling while I awaited the reefsmart light. We are now a day before valentines day, and I have placed my first few corals to be ready for the day. Again for over filtration and for more color, I placed some red macroalgae. I am very excited to try this back to the basics approach to reefing. I will be completing a 50%-80% water change weekly. I will include the equipment that I am starting with.

  18. 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. Hardware: Coralife biocube 29 Stock hood/lighting: CF daylight, Actinic Blue, Blue LED bar x2 Stock Pump Upgraded ultra quiet hood fans Hydor 425 & 240 powerheads EHEIM Jager 150W heater Filtration: stock bioballs, carbon filter cartidge, Chemipure Elite Blue biobag 2 digital electric outlet timers to control lights Livestock: 2-Picaso Clowns 1-Yellow Wrasse 1-Purple goby firefish 1-Redstripe cleaner shrimp 1-Sand sifting starfish 6-crabs (3-red, 3-blue) 2-Nessarius snails 3-Turbo snails 2-Trochus snails 4-Astrea snails 1-Zebra snail 1-Bumblebee snail Corals: Duncan Frogspawn Hammer Kenya tree Zoanthids Blue star polyps Hollywood stunner
  19. I just did a full tank switch the night before last, and the only Coral that has opened back up has been the mushroom. On one Zoa there's this clear bubble-like layer that has formed, and on one of the palys there are a few similar but smaller bubbles that weren't there before. I've been reading some horror stories about asterina or fungus, but it seems like it has to be connected to the tank switch somehow?
