Re: WHAT?!?! #2
Right, Google images is saying it's a nudi...why it's only just decided to appear now (especially as I've just dismantled and put back togoether after a new floor!) I don't know. Any clues on how it'll work in there?

Re: WHAT?!?! #3
OK, it's not any kind of coral. On closer inspection it appears to be some kind of sea slug. It's white, has 'feathers' all along its back and is about 1.5" long. Hubby is getting a pic as we speak...could somebody shift this to the ID forum?

WHAT?!?! #4
Hey

I've just found something weird in my tank.

I got some corals a few months back and one of them hasn't been doing too well. Anyway, a few times over the months I've noticed that this coral goes purpleish, sweels slightly and then seems to push out this white kinda pus. This generally disapears and then the coral is fine.

So, I looked this afternoon and it's happened again. Me and the hubby have just looked in the tank again and the white stuff is identical to the coral but in minature and white, not pink. It also seems to be 'walking' across some seaweed at a rate of about 1" per 5 minutes.

Is this breeding? Or is it something to worry about?

New protein skimmer? #5
I have an RSM130D and the standard protein skimmer that came with it is really noisey!

Is there any suitable replacements you can get for them or anyway to get it to quieten down?

Cheers loves x

Re: Persistant algae problems #6
I've found that doing a tank blackout (turn off the lights and cover the glass in black paper) for a few days will kill off the algae (take out your coral first!). That way you can do some testing without the algae itself ruining the results

Need to move my tank #8
Hey there

A few months ago we had a flood and are having to get our floors replaced so I need to move my tank.

It's a RSM 130 and has 2 corals, 2 clowns, a coral angel, 3 turbo snails and 3 hermit crabs as well as the usual compliment of live rock and sand.

I'm going to have to move it for a few days while we re-carpet and I'm worried about stressing out my live-stock. I need a plan! Has anyone got any advice on the best way to empty everything out?

Clowning around? #9
Hey guys

I came downstairs this morning and had a peer into my tank (part of my ritual: Fish, Coffee, Fag)and I got a little worried!

I have several bushes of green hair algae on my rocks. It's not a major issue as I have a Coral Angel who likes to munch through it. Anyway, one of my clowns was lying on top of one of the bushes on his side! The other clown was lying on his side on my power head. I assumed that they were dead but as I got closer, they shot off and began swimming around (and possibly laughing at me!). I checked my ammonia, nitrate and nitrite and they were all at zero and the fish have been fine all day.

Is this normal clown fish behaviour? Should I worry? I do love Bert and Ernie and don't want anything to happen to them!
