    Okay, I consider myself a pretty smart person. And the LFS I go to has pretty good ratings. But right now I'm questioning it all. I wanted to get an anemone so went looking for one. I researched on anemones for several months now. I understand they take care and feedings and everything I'm...

    I am going to be starting over, not that I really had any saltwater tanks to begin with. I don't know how big of a tank I want to get, or anything like that, so if anyone would be able to advise me on that it would be appreciated. I have some experience in keeping saltwater, but mostly...

    Hello! :wavey: I have just joined TRT, and I have quite few questions, as I am fairly new to saltwater. Now, I understand that bigger is better, but the longest tank I can get is 4 feet long. So, I want to ask, what size aquarium should I get? Please don't answer "the biggest you can,"...

    I am new to this hobby and I was wondering if I could get some advice on stocking my new BioCube 29. I have 20lbs of live sand and 20lbs of live rock. I have removed the bioballs, but besides that I have not made any mods to my tank. I know that this is a common problem with AIO tanks, but my...

    So a few days ago we added a pair of baby Nearly Naked Percula Clowns to our 125 gal reef. Awesome, right? :banana: What's not so awesome is that our Gregory Damsel, who is only a little bigger than our baby clowns, has been harrassing them relentlessly, and we're afraid it's going to kill them...

    Hello, I was looking for some advice on lowering my phosphates a bit more in my tank. I had it setup as fish only, with LF, for a little over 2 years and I am working on switching over to a reef tank.

    I am in the market to upgrade my tanks equipment and go more high tech. At present its a45g but i have an engineer coming around next week to see if the floorboards will take a 1400L system and making reinforcements as necessary.

    Is it okay and safe to have no skimmer on fish only setup? Tank would be between 150-300L and very lightly stocked. Maybe 3 fish at 3" max.
