    Gees, you okes are bad hey...:lol:...I nontheless chuckled at the comments too and had similar thoughts

    Listen Nano, they are pulling the piss because although some corals are all soft and squishy looking and they wave about in the current, they are still in fact corals - not plants. When I first got into reefing, it took me a long time to stop calling them plants too so don't feel discouraged by the sarcasm - there is bound to be a lot more and you got to take it all in good humor.

    Give us some info and you will get the right advice for your situation.

    What we are going to need, is a breakdown from you as to what you are running there:

    What size is the tank?
    How long has it be running?
    That do you have in it?
    What lighting do you have?
    What filter systems are you using?
    Do you know what your water parameters are?
    What corals (plants) are you referring to that aren't coming out?

    All of this information is helpfull for us to know what is going on over there to be able to offer the correct diagnosis and treatment...we all want the best for one another and providing you with incorrect advice based on a lack of information is only going to do more harm than good, so to get any advice which is worth the bother offering - we need some info from you first :thumbup:
