    Young percs with growth.

    They are eating like hungry little clowns, cruising the tank relentlesly. They are definately growths, the first one on his head is getting larger, and turning a hint of pink. It looks like two or three little cotton balls bigger than a piece of sand protruding from his head on the white...

    Can't help myself. Strange algae outbreak.

    I soak my food in algea often when I think their might be added stress to the fish. New additions, ect. I also have had to fight a similar algea. A weekly harvest is all that seems to keep it under control, I suppose it is good for the compost pile?:)

    ??? Blue spotted jawfish

    sorry to hear about the jawfish. They are great fish and around here it has been hard to find them lately. I have heard of people using cellofane over their tank, and changing it each week, sounds like a good idea to me?!

    I think red alga

    Could it be "red slime", it would look like the name. There is a med called something like Re Slime Away that gets rid of it quick.

    The leathal spots.

    Beth, do you say it is not velvet because the fish is surviving? If not is it similar, Ich? The only change I see tonight is an increase in the # of tiny spots. I forgot to mention I have also increased temp to 80. Should I continue water changes?

    The leathal spots.

    I a Klarki Clown who looks like he is on his way out. He is in a 20 gal reef. My Jawfish disappeared about a month ago. The Klarki(Bert) is breathing rapidly, his fins look faded. Tiny white dot seem to have formed around his head, and eyes look clouded. Since it is a reef I have just...

    Who is that in my tank?

    This mourning at around 7 am I happened to be next to my tank when the lights popped up. I saw a long "octopus" leg retreating into a hole under some liverock. I am assuming that it is a brittle star that I bought back in February when I was a super newbie, only 3 months into salt...
