    Coral ID please

    Hi! I have had this coral for a while but I don't have a clue what kind it is. It started off about the size of a dime if not smaller and over a year or so it has grown quite a bit. It is even attaching its self to the back wall of the aquarium. Hope one of you knows what it is!

    Red Branching Algae

    Rejuvinating an open brain

Long story short, I ended up taking it home for free and putting him in my tank. (He came from a tide pool at the beach, the dude wouldn't take him back and I couldn't leave...

    I found three brown oval shaped sacks along the water line in my 55 this morning and I was wondering what they were. They were trailing right behind a snail so I 'm thinking snail eggs. They are pointed on both ends ( kinda like a marquis cut diamond ) only the top point is attached to the...
