    Torch Splitting or peeling?

    Had this torch mid last year as one head, and slowly growing, the tissue at base receding just happened two day ago wondering is it not happy or splitting? All other torch in the tank has no sign of receding.

    Unhealthy Torch

    I bought a guys livestock because he was shutting the tank down and in there was this torch. Unfortunately it's definitely receding. Color is still good and it'll still eat when directly fed, I mean as much as a torch will. I guess I'm looking to see if anyone has successfully saved a torch...

    How high is too high? --->NITRATE for Softies and LPS

    How much Nitrate in an LPS and Softie dominant tank is considered too high? Mine are between 20 - 50 ppm and after spending months with Nitrate at 0, I am not sure if I want to lower it.

    LPS Check

    Hello All I wanted to get some feedback on my tank and perhaps why a few of my corals are showing stress. My Bicolor Candy Cane is barely hanging on while the other two are starting to show their skelton on the edges. My zoa's, polyp's, mushrooms all seem to be doing okay. Here is what I tested...

    Does anyone know what this coral is? I bought this at my local lFS today and the owner didn’t know what it was as well. I was thinking maybe a favia or chalice of some sort, but not sure.looks awesome though (pretty big)

    LPS not opening

    Hi everyone, I just added a display refugium to my main tank, and since then both my LPS, torch and acan aren’t opening. All my softies (other than my mushroom) are all open and doing great, same goes for my montipora. I thought it could be flow at first but I adujsted the outtake to match the...

    Scoly is receding for some reason!

    Hello, My scoly that I've had for several months is starting to recede for no apparent reason. I went home last weekend, Friday morning - Sunday morning, and when I came home, it was like this. The coral isn't next to anything that can sting it I think. It is next to a tachyphylia or...

    What coral is this?

    Hi guys, I recently purchased and fragged a large specimen of a coral advertised as a hammer coral. I had doubts from the start of it being a hammer coral but I am still unsure what type of euphyilia coral this is. You can see from the pictures that it has a branching structure and a bunch of...

    Torch Coral closed?

    I have this torch that I’m unsure what’s wrong with it. it looks like the tentacles have shrunk and haven’t come out in about a week. It was doing fine for the longest time but last week all of a sudden it no longer was opening like it should’ve. All my other corals are opening fine including 2...

    Is my scolymia growing a new head ???

    Hey guys, I recently noticed while observing my tank that there is a small Florescent polyp looking thing attached to the side of my warpaint scoly. My first thought was that it was a zoa of some sort, but I realized this thing is way too tiny to be a zoa. Here are some pictures maybe some of...

    What is wrong with my Turbinaria

    I’ve had it for 4 months, I can see more of these “holes” were a polyp once was and browning on the edge. What’s wrong with it? Can someone give me some pointers? Recently tested my values and everything was in the norm. Would really appreciate some help as I’m quite new to the hobby

    Build Thread The heater failure build

    I have had aquarium since I can remember. Ok the very first one hardly can be called an aquarium as it was just a 3l jar with a 2-3 inch catfish in it my dad caught while we were fishing. And that fish didn’t last long with me as he had to go back to the river Danube. It was growing faster and...

    Hammer Tentacles Only Half Attached

    So the other day I took my hammer out to do an iodine dip because he wasn't looking too hot. Been having a bit of a cyano problem and some had grown on it's skeleton. I dipped and basted him with a turkey baster and I guess I hit him too much with the baster because it looks as though part of...
