    What are the odds of 3 baby peppermint shrimp to survive in a reef tank with 4 clowns? I just bought a peppermint shrimp and to my surprise there was 3 babies in the bag with it. What is your opinion on survival? Thanks

    Okay, I have what appears to be babies in my tank, and I have no idea from what. I have only Emeralds, Hermits, Snails, and Corals. No fish. Yet I have what appears to be baby somethings in my tank at work. It is a small tank, and these are not pods. I don't get it. At first I thought...

    This should be a fun one. We have done this a while ago, but I think a lot has changed since the last time we talked about these. What are these used for? Do they do any good? What is one? How do you plumb one? Wow the list goes on. :D G~

    One of the coolest lookin fish I have ever seen. Red, blue, green, purple, black, white, orange, yellow mix with a great pattern. Much better looking than a Sixline. It also buries itself in the sand at night. **Reefsafe except for with baby Peppermint shrimp and lettuce nudis.** Sorry, no...

    I've been studying saltwater setups for the last 6 months and am getting real close to putting something together now that I think I know about 1% of the info out there :) . My question about the refugium is this: Will the pump kill most/all of the pods that are raised in the refugium? Thanks...

It was great, there...
