    Hi, Jesse - and welcome to Reef2Reef.

    I've never kept fungias, but perhaps someone else on the #reefsquad can offer you some assistance with that guy . . . I am given to understand that if it passes on, you should keep the skeleton in the tank, as they often produce babies from the skeleton over the next several months or so.

    I use Cerith and tiger conch snails to help out with my sandbed.

    It hasn't changed in all these years. I still pop in RC once in a blue moon, but Reef2reef is my home.

    The Rev is a upstanding individual and he has some of the hobby's big names here that frequently join us in conversations, willing to be apart of this community. Speaks volumes to me.

    Since joining, I've never seen "flaming" or "talking down" to anyone here, by anybody. Everyone is open minded and willing to help, willing to share their experiences, right or wrong, me included.

    RC has its go to people and history of information that is vast, but lacks things like the "reefsquad". Need help for an answer, just type #reefsquad and here they come to help. "like buttons" that tells others you approve of what was said, if you don't, don't hit the like button. (No need for flaming) Simple, yet effective. Makes you feel apart of the community.

    After all, it's about the hobby and the hobbyists. Not about being right or wrong personally, socially. It's about sharing and learning. I love it.

    I know from personal experience that leathers can be super fickle and can take a couple weeks to be happy again. I'm not familiar with the mariglow light but sometimes jumping to a high quality brand with higher par can shock the corals if they don't go through an acclimation period. Other than that I don't have much to offer but I'll call in the crew for you. #reefsquad
    In the meantime they are going to want to see all of your parameters, PH, alk, cal, mag. Also please keep in mind that the sand sifter star you've got in there will deprive your sandbed of microfauna and end up starving after a bit.

    Any dead, rotting tissue in the system will cause ammonia - including corals - but I don't know enough about toadstools to tell you if that guy's just cranky, or if this is a pull 'em out situation. Pretty sure someone else on the #reefsquad will, though.

    Not the best with fish disease, but definitely get that guy into QT. What meds do you have on hand?

    Also, calling in the #ReefSquad

    Welcome! Is the tank acrylic or glass?

    Let's see if we can get some more input on the tank polishing and stand building.

    Don't panic.

    You can't see ick bugs on a fish. They don't land on the glass so you can see them.

    The pics on the glass are fuzzy but look like cope pods. Cant see if there's any thing else on there that would bother the. Fish like perhaps a hydroid jelly bloom.
