    So my son noticed some stuff in the tank only about 20 minutes after I was done just staring at it. It is jelly like when I took it out of the tank. After further investigation my mexican turbo snail was upside down under the koralia pump. Doesn't seem to be snail sperm as they release it as a...

    OK i have an issue with Vermetid snails. I lost a colony of Zoas and couldnt figure out why. but just realized it was the Vermetid snails that covered them with the mucus they secrete to catch their food. They are the lil red/brown tubes growing all over the rock. I have heard super glue...

    What are these things?? They excrete spider web things when they get stressed I guess, I was cleaning the glass before this pic. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This worm has a calcified encrusted tube like a cocoa worm, but no feather duster head. It retracts into the tube after several camera flashes. I found it tonight after lights out while probing around with a flashlight. The tube is about 1cm in diameter and ~1-2 inches in length and attached...

    Hi guys, What is this white dots sticking on the glass? It's a little bigger than the salt size and alot of them. At first, it looked to me like pieces of sand. Is it something that I have to worry about? Thanks

    My Hammer Coral has been putting out a huge slime string off the back. When basting today I decided to check it out and found this thing that is about the diameter of a dime....

    Saltpod Pics and Info on Aiptasia Reproduction Aiptasia Biology - Aiptasia Pictures - Aiptasia Control - Aiptasia Planula Larvae I think Aiptasia are fascinating. They are born survivors- hence why people battle with them for years in their reef tanks and still usually end up losing. I keep my...

    Found this in my tank last night and I am not quite sure if its something thats good, bad or doesn't really matter. It almost looks like a cobweb kinda thing. Looks like there are some clear tubes also. Any idea of what it might be?

    The Z & Ps in my DT haven't been thriving, I believe due in part to too much light from my AI LEDS. As a result, I've decided to relegate many of them back to the frag tank, freeing up space for more clams that will happily bask in the LED glow :) These two already reside in the display...

    At first it started out really small and emerged on the side of my cyphastrea. Its grown to this size in about 2 months. the cyphastrea is still growing like crazy too. can't really see its head due to angle from the tank. its growing in a circular curled pattern. has 2 "feelers" like a snail...

    I know they are basically harmless, I just get tired of the stringy webs enveloping everything (especially my SPS shelf.) I've cut back feedings a bit to try and reduce the food source in the water column (I do dose a small amount of Phyto daily to support pod production for my Mandarin)...
