    Acan Echinata abnormal growth?

    I bought this coral from my LFS about a week ago and have some concerns about it I'm hoping someone could help me out. I was told this is an acan echinata correct me if I am wrong but there seems to be a spiky white growth in it that doesn't seem to be part of the coral because the flesh recedes...

    Can you help identify these corals

    Hi everyone. Yesterday I bought a pack of 9 "beginner coral" pack from a local coral store that was on sale. Each pack is different and silly me forgot to get the names of what I was getting. Can I get help from the veterans here as to what I have? That way I can read up on them more. The...

    Cherub Pygmy Angelfish, anyone keeping them?

    I have been trying to narrow down a livestock list for my tank, and another member on here mentioned the Cherub Pygmy Angelfish. I did some reading on them, and most livestock sites mention that 'It may nip at large-polyped stony corals and clam mantles' This seems to be almost the same copy and...

    One Blasto Head Shrinking, The Other Thriving?

    I'm not sure what's going on with my blasto, one head is shrinking while the other looks happy as can be. I've never had an issue with these guys in my tank, I've found them to be honestly some of the happiest and hardiest corals in my tank. Any ideas why only one head might be shrinking?

    Build Thread Project ZERO

    Background: I have been fascinated with zero edge systems since the mid 2000s. I was working for ORA as a technician in their coral greenhouses. The 1st time I saw the display system they had designed for trade shows, I knew I had to have one of my own one day. Fast forward 15 years later, I was...

    New hammers won’t open, is there anything I can do?

    So I got these hammers three days ago from a reliable private seller. They looked great in his tank so I took them home. At home I dipped them in the TM iodine dip as per the directions (5 minutes). Rinsed in fresh salt twice. And since nothing came off I add them to a lower flow, lower light...

    Where do you buy your coral online?

    What’s a good place to buy corals online? I’ve shopped at AquariumDepot a few times and they’ve been fair. I’m only keeping LPS and softies right now. I never find any good deals at my lfs so I’d love to hear your guys thoughts!

    Sick/dead coral

    Hi, quick intro, I’m new to reefing, about 2 months into my nano 10 gallon, everything is going smooth, stable parameters and such. I have purchased a few frags of LPS from a local hobbiest a couple of weeks ago and he threw this Favite (I believe that’s what it’s called) in for free. A few...
