I was wondering if you had a piece of stag horn coral in it’s natural golden tan color. I’m not a huge fan of all the bright green or deep purple specimens I usually find. Also if you do have the color stag I’m looking for I’m probably not going to be buying it for a couple of years because the tank it’s going to go in is currently somebody else’s, so it’s going to be a long process of getting it to my house and then starting the system back up.

I had a large rock full of polyps up until 3 months ago My nitrates rose very high (magenta colored), probably from over feeding. They have not opened in several weeks now. There is still the purple color on the rock, which I’ve been told is a sign that there is still life. Any advice would be highly appreciated

Try to lower a nutrient as this one like a nutrient rich water and this will slow their growth rate, if this is not possible, remove the affected rock and replace with new cured/high quality fresh live rock

Your care instructions state that phosphates should be zero and that corals hate phosphates. This is untrue and misleading. Corals require low levels of phosphates to grow. Recommended levels are .03 ppm up to as much as 0.1 ppm for good health. Suggest you research and correct your information. Zero phosphates cause coral death.

The Yellowpolyps have completely taken over our 55 gallon tank. They are on all of the live coral and on the walls of the tank. Is there a way to get rid of them. We would like to get our tank back HELP.

    Bruce, I know this is an aged article, I'm just starting out (about 8 months now) in the saltwater hobby and if you still have an abundance of those you'd like to get rid of please let me know. Thanks so much.

I have a question. I have an established acquarium (10 years) I had 5 fish a tomato clown, a royal gamma, a firey hawk and 2 tangs. All but the tangs I have had for 4 or 5 years. I purchased a Pink Tipped Anemone about 2 weeks ago. I put it in my 55 gallon tank with the rest of my fish. Now all of my fish are dead. The only survivors are my crabs and one chocolate chip star fish. Was the presence of the anemone in the tank the reason my fish died? I had my water tested before I purchased the anemone and it was good. I am very upset over the loss of my livestock. Also, what can I get that can survive with the anemone? Thank you

    The water from the lfs could've had something inside of it, or the anemone was very stressed and your chem. levels went sky high. could've been a number of things really.

    Unless your fish were eaten by your anemone it didn't kill them so some thing else is responsible, I hope you know never to add water from your transport bag to your tank from your local pet shops as they may contain copper or other harmful elements that can have disastrous effects to a reef system. Have you had your water tested since the incident?

    When pink tip anemone's die, they let off a ton of ammonia, essentially like an ammonia bomb. If you noticed your anemone stressed and starting to die, if would be smart to remove it before you have a major problem. High levels of ammonia all the sudden that killed your fish, to me, would point to the anemone.

    what does the ammonia look like cause i just bought a pink tipped anemone the other day and the guy said it was go to the bathroom but it still looks funny and is leaving out it looks like smoke from the tenticles
