    Looks like hair on my coral?

    I’ve only had these Zoas for about two weeks I’d say and I noticed two days ago that there is a hair-like thing growing out of two of them. We bought 3 frags and only 2 are affected.

    New 32g Seahorse Tank

    Hi reef2reef! I am starting a 32 gallon seahorse tank, and I plan on adding macroalgae instead of corals for that lush, planted look. I will be adding a pair of male seahorses (I wouldn't be able to take care of any babies!) My questions are: 1) When should I add the macroalgae? Before or...

    Help Please! - Beginner - Algae Issues in 6 Month Old Tank

    Hi All, I currently have a 6 month old tank that is going through an algae outbreak. I know this is to be expected in a newer tank, but need advice on what I should be doing to mitigate.

    Nano Build Cycling 15 gallon innovative

    Started my cycling my tank on the 29th of June and started dosing Seachem prime & stablility this past Saturday and it got my ammonia to this I’d say between 0.50 - 0.25 ppm. Should I do a water change to hopefully bring it to 0 or should I continue to wait it out? Really wanted to get fish in...

    EMERGENCY Red Knobby sea star sick ??

    My brother bought 2 red knobby sea stars a few weeks ago, and he’s convinced that one is dying. I know nothing about red knobbies, but I’m sure they aren’t supposed to grow orange spots on the underside of them?? We’ve tested the water, everything seems fine except the “hardness”. We’re going...
