As we used to say when I work in seewage treatment plant - (A word not allowed her) happens :)

Yes it will be new corals - recycling we call it :)

And the good thing - can test new corals - some have already arrived :)

By the way - The Triton result

New video


Sincerely Lasse

sorry to hear about the loss of the coral, it was a beauty. But I also appreciate you sharing your own struggles - makes me know that my own are part of having a tank, something to hopefully learn from!

Also love this video, a few of the fish in it are ones I lost this past year to disease (mostly ich and one with flukes). The possum wrasse is so tiny and its defensive maneuvers to the yellow coris and pj cardinal are adorable. :)

The possum have been here for nearly the whole time - 3 years - it is shy. This is the first time that I have been able to take a longer video of any of them (they are two). Especially - the yellow coris is not the best mate to have together with possum wrasses.

Even a small aquarium as mine give you a surprise now and then. My friend always asks me about my white sand – what do you do? The simple answer is – nothing – just let it be. In this short video – we can see that I have small helping hands. It was a year ago I saw this the last time.

I do not know exactly whats Conch means - this is one that should be specialised at detritus and organic leftover. Do not remember its name. It could be an Olivia spp

Ha, simply asking if it was a Conch, tiger, fighting, just a loose guess based off the shine the shell seems to have.

I spoke to Lasse today at work, but I'll write my theory here as well(plus remind Lasse about the name of the coral..:D)

We have a lot of Seriatopora at the Aquarium, S. hystrix, S. guttatus and S. caliendrum. I believe the colony Lasse had was a S. guttatus.
They often grow fast and when they reach the surface, the branches gets closer and closer in the upper part of the colony. Sometimes after a stressor(like high temp or power break), but also sometimes without any changes that I know of, these colonies gets a brownish slime. Looks the same as when Euphyllia gets brown jelly disease, perhaps it's the same.
The disease spread fast and in a day a 15 cm colony can die. Usually just leaving a white skeleton.
This has mostly happened to large colonies close to the surface, often where there isn't much room left between the colonies/branches. Perhaps low water flow together with high levels of light is a trigger.

So my guess is that the colony got brown jelly disease while you were away. Or maybe it just missed you too much ;)

Now clean the skeleton and bring it to work. We need media for the calcium reactors.
I had a Seriatopora colony die overnight a few weeks ago. A day (or two, can't remember for sure) before we had had a particularly hot day and the temperature spiked to 82.5°F. At the time I was keeping the tank at 78°F. There are two other colonies of the exact same Seriatopora in the tank and both of those survived. The one that died was getting the least amount of flow as it's shielded by a large toadstool coral right next to it. No sign of anything like brown jelly though.

Took a new video of my yellow wrasse going to bed. It is still the same place and he is the last to go to bed. It is interesting to see how he is inspecting the place one or two times before the dive.
