Hey everyone, excited to have found this club - with help from members on other fishy forums Smile

I'm new to the hobby, I have a coralife biocube 32 and have just started going coral crazy.  

My corals are; 

Waving hand xenia
Kenya tree - did not handle shipping well, it's fighting for survival but seems to be making a come-back!
Alveopora 
Green brain worm platygyra 
Blue eye leptoseris 
and Florida ricordea 

As they are all less than a month old in my tank I'm definitely not fragging at the moment but it's on my list of future things to learn!
Looking forward to making some reefer connections in the area since all I have around me is a selection of Petcos  Sad

Cheers!

Haha @evilbuell! I would have to say you're right. The tree that was attached to the frag fell off and completely disintegrated within 24 hours of arrival, just a little scab of it was left on the plug, now after 2-3 weeks it has a couple little nubs sticking up. I expect it to make a full comeback, I hope!!
@Zach The xenia has only been in my tank 8 days and is already creeping off of the plug onto my rock, it's on it's own piece and I've moved it away from everything else to try and help contain it. That one is a great confidence booster after my kenya tree woes though.
I think the kenya and the xenia will be great for my first fragging attempts Smile
Welcome, welcome!  If you are ever in the neighborhood in the southern part of the state stop in and visit us. Smile
Looks great! Welcome. Love that blue lepto Smile
Thanks everyone! And @Aquatic creations, I'll definitely make it down to you someday!! Smile

I'm not sure if this is an appropriate spot for this but I do believe there's something going on with my alveopora. It has an area that's white and fuzzy...any ideas? Is this something bacterial? Should I/can I cut it off and hope for the best?

I'm not seeing an icon to add photos right now so here's a link

Sorry it's blurry - best I could get!!
Very cool!  We look forward to having you down. Smile

Def. hard to say from the pic. but would recommend dipping it if it looks invasive.  Can also try "painting it" with H2O2 to burn it up if it is a fungus or bacteria.
Thank you! I will try both of those things, I appreciate the response!

I painted the area with H2O2, crossing fingers!! I’ll try a coral dip in a couple days if I think it needs it.
