    Ok, so when I originally started my fish tank I had tons of amphipods and copepods. However, in the past couple of months I have not seen one of these on my rock at all. I have read where some people have added new LR to replenish the supply some. I do not want to add any LR due to I had tons of...

    Feels like im going back to the basics but yesterday we (me & my dad) added the first pieces of coral to the new tank, standard 6ft. There is about 65-70kgs of live rock which is approx. 143-154 pounds. So my question is how long should i be waiting to add livestock? My current thoughts are 2...

    I just noticed on my used 75 gallon tank i pickup off craigslist and am in the process of sterilizing with white vinegar, that there is a gap in the silicon. The tank has been filled and running for about 15 hours with no leaks. Should i just clean the area and add some silicon, or is this a...

    I have a 55 Gallon with 80 lbs of Live Sand but only 10 lbs of live rock. I plan on adding about 50 more lbs. I only have one question, The live rock is fully cured and ready but do I need to add it slowly to the tank or just all at once?

    I have a single ocellaris clown in the tank now. I had another in the tank but it disappeared randomly and I guess it got "cleaned up" by my hermits and snails. Can I add another ocellaris clown and hope they become a mated pair? Is this a good idea or will they be aggressive towards each...

    Hi everyone! I have a quick question for you... Would adding 3 allen's damsels, a scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp, and a rose anemone at the same time be too much for my system? It's a 92 gallon corner. Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate: all 0. I wanted to order them all at the same time off of...

Sorry Geoff but I also want to add some cheato to my sump and was wondering when I can? My cousin said to do it...

    I was just curious as to why people say not to add anemones or any type of soft coral for at least 6 months or a year? If all of my water parameters are testing ideal for a reef tank and my lighting is good enough can I add a nem? Is there something that I am not testing for? I currently use API...

    If I were add a brand new refugium with a 4 inch DSB made with new sand, and maybe some chaeto, would my tank go through a mini cycle? Would it matter how big the refugium is? Whether its 26 gallons or 200 gallons

    I really want a skunk cleaner shrimp but I am weary because I had a peppermint shrimp who I think was killed by my sixline. I added the peppermint during the day when everyone was out swimming around. He went into hiding right away and soon after he molted. He came out after about 3 days and in...
