    Center Piece coral

    I have a nano tank build, Lifeguard 7g, which is primarily a softy tank. I have a piece of rock sitting from and center that I’d like to put something eye catching on. Being such a small system I’m weary about doing any SPS or LPS but I’d like something fast growing, hardy, eye catcher, and not...

    Will my lighting be too strong?

    Hey guys! Starting up a 10 gallon - IM Fusion nano reef tank. Planning on mixed soft, LPS, and SPS corals. I have a AI prime 16 HD at the current setting (see picture). Is this going to fry my corals? Will start it with 50% acclimation over 30 days when I do add the coral. Thanks!

    Xenia help

    I have what I believe is just your general Pom Pom Xenia. I’m just wondering if it is normal for Xenia to just grow in single heads. All the ones I’ve seen online have been one base white many heads. Thanks In advance

    So what's the differences between these two or are they the same just with one being the "fancy" name to charge more or what?

    What comes first?

    Hi everyone! After my tank with the dead rock has been cycled ( I believe this takes a month?). What is the next thing to introduce? Coral? Fish? Bottom feeders?

    What your favorite part of Reefing?

    We all have the same love for reefing but what’s your favorite part of it. I’m curious as to why everyone’s in the hobby or what got them into reefing? Is it the corals or the fish? Do you like buying a frag and watching it grow? Maybe it’s the whole tiny ecosystem you control and you can see...

    Zoa ID

    So I snagged some gobstopper zoas recently and two of the polyps have a bright green fringe. I was wondering if it’s just a color morph or if they go by a different name completely.

    Coral Suggestions

    Looking for any coral recommendations that won't grow out of control (GSP, Xenia, etc.) for the back of my rockwork. It's pretty shaded overall and tends to get quite a bit of flow, so I'm really not sure what would be a good coral. Any suggestions would be great!

    Copper striped growth on live rock

    Lights for 10g tank

    Are these specs ok for a 10g tank with a small polythoa coral frag? I would also really love to get a bubble tip anemone for my clownfish.. Are there other cheaper alternatives to T5 and the other well known lights? Anything under $40?
