  1. Hey everyone - wondering what could be the cause of this spot on my zoa frag. When I purchased the frag late last week, there area without polyps was there, but just recently has turned white. As you can see in the photo, it is almost like little white spores. Any idea what could cause this and how I can treat it?
  2. Does anyone know why my zoanthids are not growing well. Is algae growing on them? If so how do I stop that.

    Something's wrong

    We've got some trouble in paradise. So as some background, my most recent water change was this Saturday, three days ago. Ca was at 440 and all other parameters were fine (don't have my own test kit so I got my water tested at the pet store when I went to get more saltwater. Waiting for a good one to go on sale). Before doing the water change, all of my new zoas were acting up (Radioactive dragon eye, eagle eye, and utter chaos). They were all closed up or half closed, not fully opened and pretty. At this point, all of them have been in my tank for about a month; the UC was always open and it was the RDEs and the EEs that were giving me problems. On the advice of another zoa keeper, those two got a peroxide dip. Nothing had happened in the tank other than a hermit crab knocking my Fat Head Den on top of my UC; even then it was still open though. Following the peroxide dip, my UC polyp starts acting up, Mind you, it was fine before and didn't receive a dip. Now after the water change on Saturday, UC still has not opened up and the polyp looks likes it regressing? At the same time, my Monti cap (which was also fine on Saturday during the water change) has started bleaching?! The Monti has also been in my tank for a month and was totally fine. Its mounted on a magnet so I have it at the surface of the water where the par is the highest. It's directly across from my wavemaker so it's getting good flow. And, I feed the tank a mix of benepets and Reef Chili so there is food in there small enough for it to eat. I've been checking for flatworms on both but I see none or any eggs. Any clue as to what's going on? I don't want to lose either of these corals!

    convice for zoanthids

    hi, i realy want some zoanthids, jet my parents are afraid of the palytoxins. I wont frag the zoas and wont be rough with them (the main reasons they release it). They say im to "young" to handle these toxic corals my LFS is selling a nice piece of zoa rock with alien eye zoas about 60 polyps for 30$. a good sale. Any way i can convince them so i can buy zoas. (i been stuck with mushrooms, xenia, star polyp and leathers for softies)
  5. OK, well they might not be getting degrees but they are for sure helping me get mine! I am currently a Junior at a small school in Ohio and I have something no one else has, a pair of badass clownfish! I have been keeping reef tanks for about 7 years now and after all that time I finally feel like I'm avoiding rookie mistakes. I originally brought a 5 gallon tank to school my second semester of my freshman year and my whole plan was to make everything as simple (and cheap) as possible. Anyone in the hobby knows where this is going. I went too simple and too cheap right out the gate. I went bare-bottom, no mechanical filtration and even skimped on the live-rock. Long story short that tank did not survive past spring semester. I tore it all down and swore that I was done! Fastforward a year and my obsession with the hobby had been rekindled. I spent the last summer researching how I can make this tank 1) thrive long term, 2) personally enjoyable and 3) informative to others. As the only person on my campus to have a saltwater tank I felt like this time around I had to keep the up for myself but also for the people living with me. 5 months into that journey and people still come up to me and ask "you're the one with the fish tank in your room right?" Tank Specs Display: 10 gallon glass aquarium Lighting: 2 Par38 Rapid LED bulbs suspended using Coral Compulsion clamps Heating: Eheim 25W heater Circulation: Ecotech mp10 (OG model) Rock: Reel Reef Rock (10lbs) Filter: Aquaclear 20 w/Chemi-Pure Blue Substrate: Carib Sea Arag-Alive Reef Sand (-12Lbs.) Current Livestock A pair of Ocellaris clownfish 2x Sexy Shrimp 2x Nassarius Snails 2x Scarlet Hermit Crabs Soft Coral Green star polyps Radioactive Zoanthids Hulk Zoanthids Anemones Red rock anemone All my livestock, besides the female clownfish (bigger of the two), came from vividaquariums. I highly recommend them! It is the second time I have gotten shipments from them and they are world class and very professional. I ordered a pair of clownfish but one died within 12 hours and they were great about refunding me the next day! If you cannot tell, I love photography so if you're looking for a thread with some cool photos, stay tuned for more. I will be trying my very hardest to post every ~2-weeks about how tanks journey. The good, the bad AND the ugly! Thank you for reading.
  6. Hi everyone, here's a few first pics of my tank-swapped 20 gallon Waterbox next to my 5 gallon "floating" no-named nano tank. I'll be updating and posting new tank pics as I can on this thread, along with more info on the system as time goes on. Thanks for looking!

    Pest on new Zoas?

    I got my first coral yesterday Fiji Zoas. I noticed there are these black and white kind of strings attached to the piece the corals came on (bottom right). The Zoas that it touches kind of seem to be closing. What are those? Do I need to remove them? Any tips appreciated - first saltwater tank.

    First Tank Update

    Okay, so heres my first tank update in my fluval m60. It has been going for close to 2 months now and i have finally got it stocked up with a few up the things in want to add to my tank. The hardware i have running is my return pump and 1 wave maker. I'm not sure what ones they are but from the first time I set up this tank(what a failure ) were the correct flow rate for what i wanted to keep once I got all the things I wanted to keep(anemone and sps/maybe lps around the 1 year+ mark). Tunze 9001 skimmer and using it as a surface skimmer. Media reactor(again don't know what kind but correct size for the tank) running gfo with a media bag sitting on top of where it pushes the water out from with carbon. Then 2 filter media or whatever there called before the return pump. I have the maxspect razor r420r 130w. Oh and i have some kinda rock i got from the lfs that wasn't live rock but still held a lot of bacteria So in the display has about 25-30 pounds of live rock and 20 pounds of live sand. I first bought 5 blue legged hermit with one dying. they helped clean some algae towards the end of my cycle. Once cycled I bought a pair of flurry clownfish that love playing together. Been going great. This past weekend I bought a fire shrimp and 2 small zoanthid colonies( not sure the names ill post pictures and a video tomorrow if you guys could help when i figure out how to post them). The fire shrimp does hide a lot but when i put my hand in my tank today to shift my rocks around a tiny bit he actually came out and starting to clean my hand. After i hand fed him some pellets (only went for 2 small ones) Thought that was super cool and the zoanthids seem to be doing good, so right now I'm very happy where my tank has came in this period of time and watching it grow into a tiny piece of the ocean.Thanks for reading and ill get pictures and a video up later.

    Divers Den zoas not looking good

    So these guys came in on tuesday looking a bit beat up, I know it can talk a while for them to open up but something just doesn't look right to me. I'm a big newbie when it comes to corals so any help is appreciated . This first pic is of the day they arrived while I was dipping them. These other two pics are from today.
  11. I recently received new zoa frags and upon inspection I can see white spots that seem stationary on the polyps (see pic). Are these zoa pox possibly? Is there another name for this? I can't find much information about it online, not in recent years anyway. I also have another zoa frag that has doubled it's number of polyps in a couple of months, but recently the colour on one polyp started receding. Now this morning the colour is pretty much all gone from the polyp. Pic 1: Loss of Colour Pic 2: Zoa White Spots Anyone have any thoughts advice on either of these things? Ammonia: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 15 Phosphate: 0.36 Salinity: 1.025 Temperature: 80 Alk: 10.4 Calc: 470 Mag: 1360 My parameters are a bit higher than normal due to larger than normal WC yesterday.

    Zoanthids with Aggressive Corals

    I recently was gifted a bunch of corals (break out your tiny violins) and I have limited real estate in my nano as surely we all do. I'm wondering if zoas/palys are okay very close to other corals such as Acan Lords, GSP, Ricordea Florida Mushrooms, Frogspawns/Purple Tip Hammer, Hairy Mushrooms and Candy Cane corals. If the specific brand of zoas/Palys in question is relevant they are: Sunny D, Rastas, Scrambled Eggs, Orange Bam Bams, Psychosis, Captain America etc. They would potentially be right up close to any number of the above mentioned (potentially aggressive) corals. Thanks for any suggestions!
