  1. Torch dying ?

    I think I found the culprit! Just witnessed skunk cleaner shrimp scavenged the polyps from torch coral! I am not sure if it is because that torch head is weak and dying or shrimps just got too hungry! I didn’t feed them in QT often enough I guess! I thought they were reef safe!

  3. Torch dying ?

    Can this be caused by brown jelly disease? Should I cut off the empty head? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Torch dying ?

    I guess disappearing as clean as in my case, that head can assume to be a goner ? :( Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Torch dying ?

    No pooping observed but It has been like that closed for days. I measured water parameters and found ALK at 6.7kH and NO3 at 20ppm. Not sure if this is the reason but I immediately did a 60% WC and brought ALK to 7.8 and reduce NO3 to 8. And will slowly bring ALK to 8.4 ish. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Torch dying ?

    One head disappeared overnight but rest look fine. Is this some worm or just water parameters or lighting flow not right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Great photos and write up! I love these meet ups and always learn new things! Although I am only in the hobby for 7 months, I start to get why you guys are so into reefing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Help! Weird bump on Yellow Tangs tail!

    The big one above this one that fell off looks like cauliflower. But this one is too small to tell. Just look like a bump under skin and won't go away. It's been there since 3 weeks ago and stay through Furan 2, cupramine, and pimafix and melafix treatments. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I treated him with pimafix and melafix for a week after Furan 2 treatment. The fluffy fungus ball fell off after 4 days of treatment. But the other bump on the tail stayed there for more than 3 weeks. It looks like skin color but not very sure. Based on size and time it stayed, not likely to be ick but I am lost what might this be? He has been in QT more than a month ago. I wonder if I can transfer him to DT now or should wait for that bump to disappear? See photo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Foran 2 with cupramine

    After a weak of pimafix and melafix, the big fluffy ball fell off, but if you notice there is another small dot on the tail below the big fluff (visible in the picture I uploaded), which still persists. That small dot has been there more than two weeks, even before I start the Pima treatment so it's unlikely it's ick. But I wonder why that dot still stays and should I continue pimafix and melafix?

    Thanks so much for the offer. But I already purchased both pimafix and melafix. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So would you suggest that I remove copper and start treating fungus? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
