    Zoanthids melting away

    Over two days my zoanthid frags just started acting like they were melting away. No idea what’s going on. Tank parameters seem near perfect. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I did a 20 minute iodine dip and it did nothing.

    Overflow emergency! Hardwood floor at risk ;)

    This is a photo of my rig. The foam is down now because we turned it off for a few minutes, but the foam eventually bubbles up and overflows. We have a hardwood floor so we're in a real pinch and the member of the family who maintains the tank is out of town! Any ideas?

    Should I Be Concerned About My Frogspawn?

    I just cut off the powerhead to feed the corals and this is what I notice. It looks like it is ripped away from its base. Flow is pretty relaxed in the tank and it has been extended the most I've ever seen it the past few days along with the rest of my euphyllia. This is the first time I've...

    Red Bubble / orb on stromb snail?

    So I've had this snail (stromb snail / fighting conch) for about 2 weeks now and he is very active virtually always 'hopping' around the tank or burying himself or hiding in his shell from hermit crabs eating the alge on his shell. This evening I noticed a red lump on his mouth about 2x2x1mm and...

    What is my clam doing?

    I've had this clam for about 4 months and I don't know if I just never noticed it doing this but today I noticed it was expelling some sort of milky/cloudy substance. I got a video of it doing it which is linked here in a YouTube video. Is this normal or something I should be concerned with...

    Water change volume

    I have a standard 75 gallon tank. I was wondering if I need to take into consideration the volume displacement of my live rock and sand when calculating the percent of water to change. For example 20% of 75 is 15 but with 85lbs of live rock my actuall water volume is only 62 gallons and 20% of...

    My RBTA won’t attach to anything

    I got my RBTA 2 days ago. He was attached to a rock so I carefully removed him with an ice cube and turkey baster. I acclimated him for temp and ph for a reasonable amount of time before placing him into the tank. I used my anemone basket to float him near the top of the tank to kind of isolate...
