Hey everyone! I thought I'd start a build thread to track my progress with my newest reef. I had about 7 active tanks running simultaneously when I was 13-15 years old, but then lost interest in the hobby and got rid of everything. I'm older now and haven't been working as much due...
My calcium has been rising for a couple weeks now. I don't dose calcium yet, but I do dose KH. I check all my parameters 2 times a week and have noticed a massive increase in calcium even from the last test. I do a water change every Sunday arvo (just did one and checked...
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...
Hello everyone. I am very interested in soft corals and all their variations so can you please leave a picture and a name of a softie that you think is the most unique/beautiful softie out there?

- 1 cardinalfish or royal gramma

I was debating what lights would be good for a 40 x 23 x 23 tank that only houses softies and LPS, I don’t plan to go SPS in this tank.
1x Radion Xr30 G5
2x Radion Xr15 G5
I would love to hear the reef2reef opinion on how to light this tank.
‘thanks in advance to all.
I have a new Red Sea 425xl up and running. Been cycled for a while and already have a decent stock in the tank. Recently added 15 corals and have a question on flow.
I really want this to be a mixed reef but I read so many different things about flow. I’ve seen up to x80+ In some...

Hi - I'm new to the forums and thought I would introduce myself with a tank build thread.
Here are some shots of my shallow lagoon reef. It's about 1.5 years old.
I call it a shallow lagoon reef tank because it features approximately 50 mangrove seed pods, as well as many some usual livestock...
My toadstool used to stand up tall, but now it’s stalk is almost horizontal. We haven’t made any changes to the tank, and have had the toadstool since it’s head was about the size of an egg. Is it too top heavy? Not enough light? Too close to the xenia?
I live in an area that doesn’t normally get hot, but this summer has had some brutal days. Temperatures have gotten high enough to effect my corals.
I have a BioCube 32 with stock LED lights and the hood. Would removing the hood help with temperature control? I know it will...

hey guys i have a 30 gallon nano with 3 zoas colonies, 2 finger leathers, a toadstool, and a mushroom. i was wondering what anyone has used and experienced beautiful growth color and overall health with? i just purchased reefroids and am considering searching for other supplements etcetera...
Someone is wanting to sell this mushroom for $160 they said it was a godspawn mushroom, but I'm not convinced because it doesn't have a pronounced bubbles. I wanted to get confirmation from the community before I make the purchase. Thanks in advance!
i just purchased these zoas a couple days ago and was wondering if you can help me I.D any issues with them? they had bubble algae so i did a hydrogen peroxide spray 50/50 with water and now i’m thinking these little tentacles aren’t part of their anatomy either? i also noticed the algae on a...
hey guys a lot of you might laugh but i’m new to the hobby and was wondering what this is at the stalk of my new finger leather? i had fed my fish blood worms the other day and thought a couple of them got jammed there but now that i look closer it seems like the tips have feather-like things on...
