    I'm constantly google imaging and reading old threads on forums. Better get used to it in this hobby.

    What do you feed yours? They're awesome looking but I read they're a handful to keep alive if you don't have a nuisance star problem.

    Sounds gruesome, but I guess one can used to anything.

    My advice is to remove that entire rock RIGHT NOW and leave it in the sun outside for a month.

    Don't mess around, you will absolutely hate yourself if you allow that aiptasia to spread. Don't even use kalkpaste or whatever on it, remove the entire rock.

    You have been warned. If you don't take this advice then in a few months or a year, you will look back and think ... OMG, why didn't I listen?

    Wouldn't worry too much about the abalone shell versus the flashing clam (or flame scallop) that you have in there. Those require a ton of food and very few can provide the amount of food to keep them long term.
     
  17. Thank you just got it I shoot mysis in inside. That do it?

    Too big for them to consume. You're better off with phytoplankton since they consume food that's 5-40 micrometers in size (from gut analysis).

    Here's an old article that sheds some light on their requirements. It's old, but the info is still relevant.

    That tubstraea (sun coral) needs spot feeding as well I think.

    You picked some beautiful, and high maintenance corals. Make sure you do some reading on them to take care of them properly!
