    I bought a BRFS over a week ago and he seems to be doing great. I see him picking at the rocks for food but I would like to get him some type of pellet or tablet to feed him to make sure he has the proper nutrients he needs. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, can you tell the gender of...

    I have had my BRFS for two days and he just stays in a corner of the tank even when the light is off. He pokes around but never strays further than an inch. Is he just being shy or should I be concerned?

    Sadly, I am thinking of selling my 90 gallon reef tank that I have had for about 2 years. I have been in the hobby now for about...oh 5 or 6 years and just do not seem to enjoy my tank anymore. With how busy my lifestyle is, and recently purchasing my first house I just do not have the time or...

    I have a few questions about shrimp compatibility but first here is the background. I currently have a Blood Red Fire Shrimp that has done well in my 24-gallon Aquapod for more than six months. I intend to upgrade from the Aquapod to a 60-gallon cube in the near future. I wanted to know the...

    I have had peppermint shrimp since I've had my tank up, mostly because they're peaceful and I had horses. Well they keep disappearing on me, not sure why. I had three, then I only had 1, then I bought two more, and now I'm down to one again. I like pepps, they seem to like to clean the rock and...

    Hi, This is my first thread. I've been lurking here for quite some time but never had much worth posting or asking until now. I'm just curious if anyone can tell me what the average lifespans of Blood Red Fire Shrimp and Skunk Stripe Cleaner Shimp are. I've got one of each and think they're...

    Hello all. Since I have another month or so before I think of adding any more fish to my tank, I thought I might ask a few questions about fish and pods I have listed as possible candidates for my reef tank. Below you will find a list, my setup and current pictures of the tank. I note that I...

    into the world of salt. I'm not sure I could ever bring myself to having a full-fledged big reef tank, but I have been thinking about one of those nifty 24-gallon nano cubes. I'm just starting to do some research and learning what I need to know about salt, so I apologize in advance if my...

    I have read a couple different places that say shrimp are better kept in a large tank. Is it all right to keep 1 common cleaner shrimp or maybe 1 of those blood red fire shrimp in a 12 gallon? will these out grow the tank?

    So right now I have a lone clarkii in my 29. It plays in its BTA most of the time, and I'm considering getting something else to liven up the tank a bit as it seems fairly blah. Anyone have any favorite type fish that would go well in a fairly small tank? I know most of ya'll have big tanks...
