    Transfer bubble coral okay?

    I have a bubble coral which it was attached on when I bought it. I'd like to place it directly on another rock instead so that it can be the centerpiece of my tank. The problem is that the rock its on already can't very well be put directly on top of the rock where I want it. Is there any way to...

    Very confused about lighting...HELP plz!

    All right, get ready to laugh at me. All I know about electricity is that you plug things in but not your fingers. Seriously. I have no clue about all this T5, metal halide, terminology or even how to go forward with upgrading. But I've been trying to read up on all this stuff. I have a 5 year...

    I'm having some difficulty and wanted to get everyone's input. I've enclosed some pics to help identify the problem. Please feel free to help if you can. I tried another board and didn't get much response so I thought I'd kick up the title a bit to stimulate some reads. Sorry everyone, just...

    Zoa colony not attaching...

    i ordered a 20+ zoa colony frag and unfortunately, it did not come attached to a frag plug--it's just the zoa polyps. They are attached to what I assume is some sort of mat. With the shipping, they are all retracted and the edges have curled up so that I cannot lay it down without some of the...

    i ordered a 20+ zoa colony frag and unfortunately, it did not come attached to a frag plug--it's just the zoa polpys. They are attached to what I assume is the mat, but of course, with shipping, they are all retracted and curled up so that I cannot tell which side is up (resembles a large...

    Which soft corals for my lighting?

    I'm looking to get some soft corals for my nano 24, but I'm not sure if my lighting is enough. Are there any soft corals you guys can recommend for 72 watts (20,000k)? My bulbs are the u-shaped 2-color fluorescent/actinic that came with the hood. Thanks!

    Oxygenation of water?

    How do I know if my tank is getting enough oxygenation? I don't have a "bubbler" because I thought that was bad for the fish and live rock. But then I have read that proper water oxygenation is important and can be a problem if it's poor. So is a "bubbler" necessary? How do I know if my fish are...

    Refugium in Nano cube?

    I have a nano 24 and have been reading about people setting up refugiums in the 2nd chamber of their nano cubes. I can easily remove the back wall black tape and set up lighting to accomodate all the chaeto it can hold. My main question is can the 2nd chamber hold enough chaeto to be effective...

    Crab ate featherduster?

    I have an odd type of emerald crab that we just discovered in the tank this past weekend. I was suspicious because I kept hearing clicking noises at night. We recently got a small featherduster and it was doing well in our tank. However, last night the featherduster looks like it was torn to...

    Reef questions

    I have a new nanocube 24 that I got from a friend a few weeks ago. I tried to leave everything in it as it was already well-established. Lots of coralline, live rock, peppermint shrimp, nessaria snails, a few tiny polyps, several tiny tubeworms (3-4 mm), tons of bristle worms, etc. Overall...
