    I bought a used 30g setup with livestock from a good friend who was getting out of the hobby. Before I would take possession of the tank I read his 2 books twice, then bought one of my own and read it twice. This brought me up to speed on what I had missed since college. Liverock, livesand...

    I have a tennant tang that freaks out everytime I turn the lights on. He acts normal with the lights off and is eating normal. But when I turn the lights on, he darts back and forth in the back of the tank, bumping into the tank or rocks in the process. I thought it may be an initial reaction to...

    I've come to the conclusion that I'm just too busy recently to do a coherent job on 4 tanks. I have enough time and energy for 1-2 and as a result, all 4 are in various states of neglect. I have a 75 gallon RR complete system that I am considering getting rid of, with about 40-60 lbs of rock...

    Anyone ever heard of a clam closing in response to too much light? Went from a 70W MH to a 150W MH. No real acclimation just set it on the bottom in a slightly shaded area. It is about 18" deep and the MH is about 4" above the tank. Thoughts? Clam in question is at the bottom right of the...

    Hi Everyone!!! Next week my friends are coming from Albany to go fish shopping. I'm very excited about adding something new to the tank but have no idea what to add. I'll have roughly 100 bucks to spend. Ive decided not to add any more fish to the tank so I'm hoping you can give me a few...

    Well I have had the biggest loss of life since I started this hobby. I'll start at the begining. Last Friday after being gone most of the day and afternoon I came home and checked the tank as I walked by like I do everyday. Well I seen that my Hepitis tang had some white spots on him, so I took...

    Ok - so I'm going to try to give the spec's of my tank... but I just want to forewarn that I don't know the right names of everything! I'm about 2.5 months in - the store owner who has helped me build it has made sure I added things pretty slowly... He mixes all the water there and you buy it...
