    Threads in the Forum missing

    Anyone figure out how to dig up old threads? There was quite a few on t5 lighting and people had posted their tanks as examples for their particular preference. When I search, it only brings up the most current one I had just posted tonight, but nothing from the last couple weeks before.

    Got this SPS in a frag tank for like $15. Not really 100% on what it is though. I was thinking it might be a type of Stylophora, but I am not an SPS keeper, so I can't say for sure. Thanks all.

    Id anyone?

    I just noticed these on my glass. I have never actually seen them before in any of my tanks. Anyone have any ideas? They are a little larger than a ball point pen, and appear almost like they are some type of egg mass. I did my best with my junky macro lens, and this is the best I could come up...
