Hey guys my 180 gallon has been up and running stable for about a year now I finally have adequate lighting. I'm ready to start putting corals in I have a few that have been sitting in a biocube just waiting. I want to do all soft corals mostly leathers. My question is where is a good place to...
Hey everyone my pulsing xenia has been doing great but over the last day and a half I’ve noticed it begin to look more rigid and less tree like than it usually does. Something seems to be off with my anemone as well. All my parameters are good, salinity is good so I have no idea what could be...
So I have a green star polyp and I can’t tell if this is normal? Or if it got damaged it looks super healthy and I have had it for almost a year if anyone has input that would be awesome. It seems like the circled area is longer and or like puffy looking.
my mushroom seems like it’s folding up. Is this normal, or should I change placement. It fell of its frag plug so I’ve kept it in a low flow area of my tank. I attached image.
I just bought a Kenya tree today and it’s bent over.
Ph: 7.8 -8
I attached an image.
is this normal behavior for a new Kenya tree?
for acclimation I bag acclimated and dropped it in. The fish stores salinity...
So I have been struggling for awhile to get my tank good enough to house soft corals, I have always had problems keeping soft corals until recently most of the new ones I have been adding are doing good for once, so I decided to test my parameters and they all look fine expect magnesium witch is...
I have several frags of Koji Wada Japanese Pink Nepthea available. This is a fun soft coral that provides some different texture and color to almost any tank. The pink looks most vibrant under white lights. This coral does not fluoresce; instead it is pigmented pink. Under heavy...
Hi everyone! About 2 weeks ago I got a toadstool leather frag as a gift. It was a very pretty piece, still is, tho recently instead of being a consistent ball shape it has become more of a crescent shape ? I don’t know if it’s normal or not? Any information will help, thank you!

am new to the saltwater hobby, my tank have been cycling for 12 days today, and my water parameters are ammonia: 0,2 ppm, NO2: 0,5 ppm and NO3: 10 ppm. Is it save to put in some soft corals?
sorry if it is a stupid question
Could I get an id on these zoas the only thing I know is that there a low end morph. The other colony hitch hiked on some live rock, thought it was a pipe organ but it has shorter stalks. Pics are taken under LED lights. Sorry for the crappy pics.
I went to buy the coral that I last posted about but they did not have it, they however had this one and it looked interesting and unique and I have never seen a soft coral that looks like this, I have no idea if it is full extended are not in these pictures but I can say he was way shriveled up...
I decided to get back into reefing after a 10yr hiatus after my brother started one up again. I found a 20G Tall on the internet and gathered all my old equipment to start it up. It was the best decision I've made in a long time!
Born January 1st, 2021. My 20G Tall has a...
I'm looking for some sort of branchy soft coral. Some that I like are sinularia, cladiella (colt coral), and capnella (kenya tree). Which one between these sheds least/in the least obtrusive way?
I've always hated the way toadstools shed because they are such an eyesore. I know sinularia don't...
Hello everyone. After posting my build thread, which you can find here, I was inspired to see how I could keep the progression of my 20g long tank going strong and making it the best that it could be! Is there anything I should change or add in my setup? It is a 3 month old tank with no sump...
I got some Xenia about 3 days ago, and it’s pulsing moderately Bc it’s in decent flow, and it is opening up which is good, but I can’t help but notice a lot of the feathers are black? I’ve gotten some conflicting info on this, with people saying it’s a phase while some saying their Xenia’s...
