    So I had purchased 2 Picasso clowns for my new tank. They both died with about 24 hours and I narrowed it down to improper acclimation time. Figured it was about an hour but if I’m being honest with myself it was more like 1/2 an hour bc I was anxious and excited. bad choice on my part. I went...
  2. Fish Disease Treatment
    Lots of questions for treating protozoa in a quarantine tank! Please read and help. I have a 55gal quarantine with a mappa puffer, queen angelfish, and harlequin tuskfish at the moment, and unfortunately am struggling with some sort of protozoa. The symptoms are very different between the...

    Hello all, My wife and I just got back into the hobby a few months ago and decided to go with the 32 Biocube setup. We purchased the package deal they had at the local fish shop. Everything was looking good, tank cycled then we purchased a CUC. Few weeks later we purchased some clowns and few...

    This brain coral has been very slowly dying from the bottom up. It is placed on the bottom of the tank and I do have a phosphate problem that I have been battling. should I cut it at the dead area and move it to another area of the tank? It seems like my other corals in the past -once they get...

    I got a green brain last week and now I'm noticing small spots of white around the edges of the heads I'm not sure if it's dying or if this is normal? It's has not set out any feeder tentacles either since I've had it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Reefers, Has anyone kept Acropora for extended periods of time using Seachems Salinity? I've always used the salt but also, I've ALWAYS had issues keeping acropora. Call it bad luck, micromanagement issues, or what have you but one thing that remains consistent is that Salinity is a cloudy salt...

    I thought I read something about a caulerpa die off due to going asexual or something and releasing some sort of toxin to the tank. I cant seem to find anything pertaining to this. I am having some issues with my SPS while others are doing great and my parameters are fine. Moving corals around...

    Okay, I have been battling Dinoflagellates for at least 6 months now with no luck. I have tried raising my PH, I've done three 72 hour blackouts, no matter what I do they just come back every time. I am so frustrated right now I am ready to give up and turn the tank into a freshwater cichlid...

We have lost a total of 4 fish all within the last 3 weeks. 3 of them in the last week and a half. Not much has changed in our tank. Our...

    I have some friends who are starting a fresh water tank and the fish they put in there keep dying. They did not cycle the tank. Does fresh water tanks need to be cycled like saltwater tanks do? I went straight to saltwater so I don't know about fresh water. Thanks. P.S. If so, what do use to...

    I was doing a water change which left some corals exposed, but when filled it back up I noticed the skeleton started bleaching. Question is do I leave the corals be and they should heal themselves? or do I have to trim the pieces off. If I leave it be will it destroy the rest of the coral?

    I have a tank that is 3.5 weeks old... When I initially set up the tank, like the first couple of a days, I had a couple of these star fish on my glass at night... Now I have none. I do not know if it was do to dieing in the cycle, the crabs, or what... I asked about them at my LFS and they...
