    Hey All, So I recently got a Black Cap Basslet. It's in a tank with a Maroon Clownfish, Yasha Goby with Pistol Shrimp and a little yellow Clown Goby. Everyone gets along just fine. The clown is not that aggressive and rather quite passive. Same goes with the Basslet as it was the last fish...

    Cynthia and I are in it to win it with our 28 gallon bowfront. Our goal is a very simple easy to maintain tank that we can easily move with happy tankmates. We plan to do this with easy to take care of fish, inverts and corals backed up by minor mathematical, engineering and veterinary...

    Well moved the tank from the old home to new today. It went fairly well. I did lose my Dejardin tang during the transfer :(, but everything else looks good so far. We will see how it looks tomorrow morning. Lets hope for no losses!!

    If you wanted just 1 fish in you tank, what would it be? It needs to be reef safe.

    anyone know the temperment and behavior of the tiny red head goby? are they sifters? a shrimp goby? or they just dont do much? will one get along with a yellow watchman goby in a 12g? or what about a red head goby and a black cap basslet in a 12g? bad mix?

    Tank is 4 months new and it is being attacked by green hair algae. Should I do anything, or just be patient. I recently added a lawnmower blenny to help the fight. Water changes are about 10 gallons/every 2 weeks and they are fed every day. Should feeding go to every other day???? RO/DI water...

    (4) caught to date, but this last one required me cracking one of my rocks in half. I hope I'm doing the right thing by taking these out because there are others that say these rock mantis max out at 3" long and do not bother other inhabitants larger than them. None the less, I'm now left...
  14. Tank Specs
    After being out of the game for more than 10 years, I have come back strong with a bulletproof setup. I've waited a long time, but if you want to do it right................it takes patience and a lot of good equipment. Oh yeah, money helps too. Tank spec as follows............ 125 gallon...

    I have been looking at sailfin tangs. I see they get to be about 16 inches at adult. Some of the sites are saying minimum of 75 gallons. That cant be right? I thought of getting one for my 90. How fast do they grow? I am already planning a larger tank for the dinning room something in the...

    To all, I have a 125 gallon reef setup that has been running for about 3 months now. All sorts of creatures are starting to crawl out of the rocks now. The rock is Gulf of mexico aquacultured. I have already removed 3 urchins and separated them into a container within the tank. I will be...

    I've finally come to the conclusion, with all of your advice, that an an angel fish has no place in the building of my reef. I had my heart set on a yellow assessor, but cannot seem to find one. Other fish, I am looking at, are Black cap basslet and neon dottyback. They are both beautiful...

    I am looking at purchasing a Flame Hawkfish for my 90gal reef. I know they can be hit and miss with eating some inverts. I do have a bigger cleaner shrimp along with an emerald crab and snails and 1 brittle star and 1 tiger serpant star. and large feather duster. My question is, is there...
