    Ok, so new tank looking great. Up until this morning. And what did I do, but mention how great it's been looking in the morning thread. I will preface this by saying that I've been reefing for a long time and have been through a lot. I'll get through this too, but need to vent. So I went for...

    I think that I am going to get a peppermint shrimp to eat my aiptasia, but I wanted to make sure it will not eat anything that I still want in my aquarium. I have some tube worms, a couple baby brittle stars, some sort of filter feeder that looks like a balloon with two holes in it, some feather...

    I am looking to starting a new 72 gallon tank, but I am not sure what type of sand to use. Any suggestions? Also, how many pounds do you think I would need for a 72 gallon bowfront? I am only looking to cover the bottom with 2-3" of sand. And before anyone asks, yes I want sand. I like...

    My heart is breaking as I write this, but the move is on. I have decided that the course to go for me will be to sell most of my livestock, corals and rock, keeping a few of my favorites of each that will be shipped to me later. I still, luckily, have the 29 that I never was able to sell, so...

    Hello, recently I got a new rock with some zos that have a few small holes about 2mm to 3mm in dia on the surface of the rock. I noticed that something about the size of twice the thickness of human hair comes out of these hole at lighting speed. It appears to acts like a hand to feel for food...

    Has anyone ever heard of these shrimp? I saw some in my LFS and they are so much cheaper then the others. Are they beneficial. Any information on this type of shrimp is much appreciated. I am sorry I don't have the scientific name just Pep Shrimp Jason
