    Stranger danger?

    Hey Folks, I’ve got a piece of rock sprouting something I can’t ID. It’s sprouting in multiple different places on the rock.

    New beginner tank - rushed corals

    So, I cycled my tank following the rules and I was ready to put some fish. I went to the store and got two clownfish and then I was amazed by the corals they had and I bought 2 little babies.
