    I have an 18g BioCube which I got 3 months ago. I have some algae growing on the sand bed that seems to come and go. I think I may have the problem because I have been using tap water that I have let sit for a few days for top off. I will be switching to RO water to see if it helps. The...

    Ok, here it is. My first ever attempt at a reef tank. In fact, this is my first venture into saltwater at all. Tank and most equipment was a great find from a freshwater enthusiast. I had the skimmer in my garage, and bought the 2 maxi-jets with upgrade kits. Specs: 90 Gallon All Glass Aquarium...

    Two questions really 1) when is the best time of the week to visit that pet place? I was surprised when I went to Exotic Aquatics(my favorite store so far in my visits) that the weekends seemed to be the better time. it's nto been as crowded,and I got a lot more help than I had during the week...

    I have a 200 gallon tank that has been up for over 20 years. For the past year everything I put into it, except fish, dies. Finally yesterday we looked for possible Bristleworms at night. We were shocked. There were, no kidding, thousands. We have ordered a trap, but does anyone have any...

    I need a little help identifying a fish I just bought. I know that sounds strange, why buy a fish if you don't know what it is. I assure you this is not my style but I had to get it in case it's what I thought it might be. The guy at my LFS identified it as what I thought it might be before I...

    My foxface is acting really sluggish. He is hiding a lot and when I fed the tank he didn't eat at all. Usually his apetite is really strong. This just started today. I noticed it when I got home from work. Yesterday he was fine and swimming all over the place as usual. Water params are...

    Well comign from having a 100g reef before this 12g is a bit tricky. Because of the size I have to pay attention alot more. I have been looking on www.thatfishplace which is luckly my LFS for fish info. I have narrowed it down to a list and I wanted to get other opinions on which ones would be...

    So a couple of days ago I reported that my Zoas were getting eaten by something. It was my first coral colony ever and it had spawned a few other colonys (through polyps breaking off and floating onto other rocks). They were all nice and full with long skirts and nice tightly packed polyps...

    Hi! I'm getting ready to re-populate my 150gallon tank under an unfortunate incident last year with flatworms. (This time, the quarantine tank is set up & ready to go!). I'm looking at both Blue & Yellow tangs (among Clownfish, a sixline wrasse, Bicolor Pseudochromis, and Purple Firefish)...

    I'm looking to add the following fish to my 62: Powder Blue or plain Blue Tang(I'll upgrade or sell if it gets too big :) Firefish(plain or purple) Mandarin(preferably green, but perhaps spotted) I'd also like a school(4-6) of smaller fish. I'm thinking Green Chromis or Anthias(may grow too...

    Well all I can say is LR cooking is a joke and a complete waste of time and money wasted on Salt. I cooked my rock to rid the LR of built up nutrients and etc to stop fueling a bad hair algae problem. The tank was doing OK for 8 months. Bi-weekly water changes, siphoning the bottom and LR...

    Not sure if anyone remembers me. But I posted a few months ago about setting up a new tank. Initial plans were a FOLR. I'm still thinking its going that way.. but there may be some corals involved down the road. The current set up is a 46 gallon bow front. With a Remora hang on skimmer...

    I have a 16 gallon tank with two perculas and a bicolor pseudochromis, aragonite sand, a powerhead, good filtration and compact flourescent light. Although the tank is well established, there is no skimmer or sump, or live rock, and no corals. The three fish have done well now in the tank for...

    I've finally added two yellowtail damsels! I also got some Formula One flake food for em. After i went through the acclimation process they both went straight to their own respective hiding spots and i figured i'd let them brood for a couple hours. I later gave em each a flake of food and that...

    Hi I'm starting my first nano tank and looking for help/advice. I'm setting up in a 30Lx12Wx12H glass tank which I guestimate to be around 18gal. I used oceanic natural sea salt mix and got my specific gravity around 1.021-1.022 (trying to raise it to 1.024 gradually). For lighting I am...
