    On the last pic are you referring to what is growing just to the right of the corals

    Those look like either colonial hydroids or some type of feather duster to me.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    It might just be me but that doesn't look like a brain coral...It kinda looks more like a mushroom but I could be wrong. If it is some sort of lps it isnt looking too good IMO. And I cant even see the worms you are referring to so I am no help there lol

    Thatg brain slash mushroom thing was all tentacles this morning,I don't know what they are supposed to look like doing well or not
    The fan worm I refer to is very prominent in the picture,it is the basket shaped brown thing. Cliff, I think you are correct about the colonial hydroid thing. That isn't good is it? I didn't see them there when I bought the rock.

    Ah, I think I see what your talking about now. It could be a flatworm

    You could just do a medicated dip using the below

    http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/revi...ct=430&cat=500

    Just use old tank water and this stuff, remove the whole rock and let it sit in there for about 5 to 10 minutes. All the flat worms will just fall right off. I always use this product when adding new corals to the tank so I don’t introduce something nasty to the tank. This stuff will not harm your corals, BB, or coraline. Seams to work for me.


    I'm not too sure how to get rid of colonial hydroids. I have read that raising your Mag levels to around 1600ppm will help to get rid of them combind with manual removal. From what I have read, they can become a big pain in the back side if not removed

    Years ago I purchased what I thought was a mushroom coral. It turned out to be a kind of LPS. It was more flatten out at the store, but looked more like this when I added to my tank:



    It turned out to be pectinia and now looks radically different. I think your 'brain coral' looks a lot like it. As it grow in size it's identity will come more refined.

    Those smaller brown polyp things do appear to be colonial hydroids. I had them in my tank years ago. They increased in number for awhile and then I think disappeared on their own.

    Kaybee: will the hydroids hurt the polyps they are on the rock with?
