    Hi all, I have been waighting for the right time to add fish to my newly setup 20 gal tank. Everything is good with the tank but i'm worried about my new fish. I got two verry small clown fish and all they do is hide behind my power head mount accept for feeding. I figured they just need time to...

    I need to get a better clean up crew but I'm not sure what to get. I have snails right now. Small narissus type and two turbo snails. I have a 150 gallon tank. I was thinking about some crabs, but I had blue hermit crabs and they messed with my corals. I also like the brittle stars, and cucumbers?

    Yesterday I put 3 of them in my 46 gallon tank along with 5 blue hermit crabs. This is a new tank about 4 weeks old. Has had live rock in it for about 3 weeks. All my levels have been perfect. The snails immediately climbed to the top of the tank and stayed there all night long...I figured...

    As the title suggests im looking for a creature fish/invert that will actively feed on cyano. Ive noticed my crabs will occasionaly feed on it, but apart from that nothing else has touched it. Before you blow me up and say i should be preventing the cyano from appearing in the first place...

    I love blue hermit crabs (the tiny ones). I have a 10 gallon tank with live rock and no live stock. I'd like to breed blue legs in it. The tank is healthy, the corraline is spreading everywhere (including the glass!), it had fish in it until about 2 months ago. I've got tons of brittle stars...

    Hi All - looking for some ideas regarding a phenomenon thats happened about six times now. First, I had a very aggressive serpent star in my 75g tank. Ate one royal gramma, two gobies and was getting ready for more. Told the guy at the LFS and he said wasn't the first time he'd heard it. Yanked...
