    Ok, I was wanting to add a Royal Gramma into my 40 gallon breeder tank. I currently have 2 Ocellaris clowns that I added at the same time about 4 to 5 months ago. My tank has been up and running for 10 to 11 months. Would there be any problems adding a Gramma to the tank? I have heard adding the...

    So I just added a threadfin butterflyfish to my tank, and he keeps going into my bullseye pistol shrimps lair. And when he does my pistol shrimp looks like he is attacking him but my butterflyfish just stays still. However my pistol shrimp isn't cocking his claw or clicking to scare him away. I...

    Afternoon all, I went to bed last night with a clean healthy tank (tested water after a PWC yesterday) and two healthy clown fish. I woke up this morning to all of the above but only one clown fish. The larger of the pair had disappeared. After a bit of searching I found the fish in shreds...

    I have a single mushroom on a rock, that I got with the live rock when I set up my tank. It has always done well. Until about 3 weeks ago when it went small, showed its guts a few times. I figured it was going to sort itself out in a day or two as other mushrooms in my tank have done before...

    I currently have 2 baby triggers and a porc puffer, I am interested in brittle stars or sea serpants. Since triggers sleep in the rock crevices are they more susceptible to an attack from these inverts
  8. "Soft" corals
    Last Friday I purchased a good size frag of Blue Devils Finger leather. It appeared to acclimate well to my tank and seemed happy. On Monday he began to droop over. I didn't pay no mind as I've read leathers are very tempermental. However I noticed this "shell" attached near the...

    So I just added a new red sea star to my tank last night and everything was okay until this morning. My Six-line wrasse constantly attacked him and ripped him to shreds. I stayed in front of the tank and tried to scare him away and fed them to try and sway his interest but he did not stop. Is...

    So i just found my pearly jawfish laying on the sand breathing really deep and not moving. He usually moves like light but I could easily pick him up with my hand. I looked at him and saw he had some red patches on him, what looked like internal bleeding. What im wondering is it looks like his...

    Ok its amazing how the questions are pouring out of me concerning this tank. I have done nothing but read and read and read and I find alot of varied information online and love the feedback I get on this forum. Case in point I tried to google what a bubble coral should look like at night and...

    Has anyone had experience with an Emerald Crab attavcking their fish? Today mine killed one of my bigger Green Chromis....what's even more weird is that I only put 2 emerald crabs in the tank, and then this third one showed up. I didn't even have the two that long...
