Hey all… hoping I post to the right forum, still new to the hobby/R2R (about 6 months). Have had this monti for about a month now. just added some fish into my display tank about 2 weeks ago after quarantine. Today I did a water change… and noticed this for the first time. what the heck is this...
Hello everyone first time poster here, I just seen this thing in my sand bed and I want to know if I should remove it or im hoping its a beneficial critter and not a pest and it can stay? fingers crossed took two pics one of it closed (spooked) other open and filtering food, at least that’s what...
Can I please get some help identifying 2 things in my tank?
1. White fuzzy worm: I say worm, but I’m not sure what it is. I found the 1st one a couple of weeks ago stuck in my return pump filter. I’m attaching a picture of what it looks like dead and dried out. It has a tail.
Hi - got a couple ID’s I need help with.
1st is there are a few of these weird looking worm-like creatures protruding from my rock. Only a handful so far, any idea what this is and if I need to do anything about it?
2nd I think this is aiptasia underneath one of my blasto’s - my thought is I...
I have absolutely no clue what these things are. They came on some LFS live rock, which I believe originated from the Indo-Pacific. They have no holes, feel quite tough, do not bend, and have small “tufts” on their spikes. They also do not appear to have grown since I introduced them a few weeks...
I assume this is Bryopsis, but just wanted to confirm. Thoughts?
Went on vacation and came back to this in the tank…not fully invaded just yet and want to get it under control. Have already ordered Reef Flux.
Hello all, just not sure what I got for coral species here and figured someone around here would make easy work of it. The tree looking one is about 3 inches high, and has a reddish purple hue. The green ground cover one is about an inch across the frag. Lastly, the green bush guy who has...
So I got a new Chromis and noticed the little guy rub his head against rock a few times aggressively.
2 days in and he is really ripping his body up. I did a fresh water dip and have him in my quarantine tank with Coppersafe.
I see no noticeable items on his body. No clue what is up, but...
Need some help with a disease ID. I got a citron clown goby for my 40cube a few weeks ago. A handful of days after I introduced him to the reef appetite and behavior seemed normal but I noticed a few white specks on just his fins. The next day his fins were clean/clear of specks...
Best pictures I could get…this little guy was in a shipment of coral I received today.
it looks like a baby snail, I believe Trochus. Anyone with a better eye have other opinions?
best photos I could get, little guy is only the size of a pepper grain.
Wondering if anyones has this or has seen it in the hobby/ might know the specie?
I got a couple clippings of the last acro from a display tank at the last salt shop in town. They were phasing out their salt water.Had no one with coral experience around, and no idea the source or species.
I just got a new frag ( very excited! Getting my first sps corals)
I noticed that it had something on the side of it
Lfs said detritus
It’s crusty and hard feeling but broke up quite a bit in the Dip
Any ideas if it’s an issue?
Sorry I couldn’t get better photos
