    Hi...

    I would like to know what's the 'brownish' coral at the back (between the Xenia and Kennya tree as well as between the green)

    It looks like an anemone....:m85:

    If it us majano it is bad, same as aiptasia. Majano look nice but are invasive and can sting corals.

    Don't cut it at the base. First let someone else comment on why it is as I'm no expert on id'ing majanos.
    You could inject it with vinegar, aiptasia x or kalkwasser.

    if you don't want it, don't cut it off...it will just grow back. Get yourself an insulin injection and inject into the base or stalk with vinegar or lemon juice...i prefer lemon juice and so will your corals...they will love the vitamin c.

    Thanks for all responses.

    I will consider to inject the Lemon juice.

    Is it the green bottle that's avail at Checkers, etc? If yes, do I dilute it first or straight from the bottle.

    Can I leave the pumps on?

    ya just the green bottle lol...dont dilute it and inject into the stem of the majanos or aptaisia....make sure its 100% lemon juice. Don't worry about the pumps, you're not pouring it in the tank, just injecting the pest majanos
