    Shipping Rainbow Bubble Tip Anemones

    Hammer coral help!

    i bought a nice hammer coral frag today and I brought it home and acclimated it and everything was well. Then I went to place it into the tank and it fell off the drag plug and the heads hit a rock and fell into the sand, now it does not look good at all, it looks like it lost tissue and the...

I have many things doing extremely well in the tank such as bubble coral, JF JOL, torch, various nems, duncans, GSP (I know this stuff would practically grow in the...

    Help with Aquarium Stores - Orlando FL area

    Hello, To those who don't know.. living in Dominican Republic has really bad parts talking about the reefing hobby. It's so ironic that we live around the sea but there are only like 2 or 3 stores in the whole country that actually sells SW fish and corals, so the menu over there is really...

    Acan changing size?

    I am still relatively new to reefing, only being at it for about 6 months now. About a month ago my LFS had a 7 head acan for sale for $5. The owner said it was in the wrong section, but sold it to me at the price regardless. It was kinda skinny when I got it, so I fed it every 3rd day and also...
