    Question for wrasse folks

    Oh I just read that it buried itself - in that case it’s not a fairy wrasse

    Question for wrasse folks

    Fairy wrasses don’t hide in the sand, so if it is hiding it is in the rocks. Could have jumped into the overflow if you have one, they are notorious jumpers

    Acan retracted for 10 days, advice?

    Update: the acan is looking much much better, I started feeding the tank 3x a day, but I honestly think I may have accidentally damaged one polyp (the one to the right, below the main polyp) two weeks ago with a toothbrush scraping cyano/algae off the rock and that it took some time for the...

    Acan retracted for 10 days, advice?

    yeah, they do. Do you think benereef could lower nitrates and phosphates (could it act as carbon dosing)? I don't think they were THAT low before...

    Acan retracted for 10 days, advice?

    ok so I just retested stuff and everything came back the same, except phosphorus, which I tested twice (hanna ULR) and it came back 0. So could that be my issue? Will feeding more increase phosphorus?

    Acan retracted for 10 days, advice?

    the acan came with the tank, so the disk is cemented to the rock and has been with me for close to 2yrs and in that location for at least a year. I don't think I want to risk messing with it too much?

    Acan retracted for 10 days, advice?

    The advice I got was to dose iodine, not dip. But yeah I don’t see much evidence that the coral is sick. I don’t have any nipping fish, I only have a pink streaked wrasse

    Acan retracted for 10 days, advice?

    My acan (micromussa) has been retracted for a few days (a little more than a week). Colors still seem seem just as vibrant as ever, but it is super retracted. (see pics below), in a way I've never seen before (at least for not more than a day). I maintain parameters with esv ionic, dosing 1ml...

    Free royal gramma in SF

    My royal gramma has become too territorial for my 10 gallon tank. Free to a good home - pick up ASAP (I am home all day tomorrow - Monday). I have him in a container in the tank. I also have a bleached tropic thunder monti frag (dark red base with green polyps). It fell behind the rocks and...

    Invited Speaker for 2020

    Don’t know what the budget is for bringing someone but what about Eliot Lim from Marine Collectors in LA, he could potentially talk about fish qt and diseases as well as sourcing and caring for rarer fish.

    DBTC: Calfo Pulsing Sinularia

    Is this coral pink like this: Does it grow super fast? What kind of light does it need? I'd be interested if I'm eligible for it (I've never taken a dbtc coral before so I don't know if I am)

    A good little tank

    Going through my own thread I noticed the goni I got from @Coral reefer has actually grown a ton since June, as has the lithophyllon. It makes me so happy to know the corals are actually growing pretty fast and well! I really can't thank Mike enough for them. The blasto you gave me has four...
