Folks, please cool it. If this turns into a flame fest or a political soapbox, we'll be forced to close the thread. And that would be regrettable, as the original poster has contributed a valid and...

Both corals do not seem to bother it. It's a pretty aggressive coral. It burned my bubble gum echino pretty badly. I'm hoping to move this year, and plan to dump a bunch of corals, in order to...

I thinks Endoh's book was written a while back, and only recently translated. That's not to suggest it's a bad book, it's actually a must-have imo. But I think some items like taxonomy and even tank...

I kept one in a 180g for a while. I bought it as a tiny juvenile. When I gave it to a friend with a larger tank, I truly felt my 180 was a little small for it. It became very irritable and...

I would give the fish time. Additionally, when you feed the tank, remain out of sight. I had a shy angel, that would only eat once I left the room. After a while, he warmed up to me.

Lastly, I...

Awesome pics everyone!

Fungi'ds are my alltime favorite coral. This is because one of the first corals I owned was a fungia. It grew to the size of a small dinner plate, and spawned every fall in...

I'm one of the people in those linked threads that reported a bacterial bloom a couple of years ago. I had no fish losses, but I attribute that to a good skimmer and other oxygenation sources.
