    So for the last week I've seen this guy crawl up into bed and spend the night in my toadstool - of course that makes all the polyps retract, which I think it does most every night. Will this behavior hurt my toadstool? should I move him to another part of the tank to break this habit? I've...

    Hi All, I am new here so if this is not the right place to post this, please don't yell too loudly. I love crabs. I have had 2 emerald crabs and a porcelain crab. All three have died. :-( At first I thought it was because my tank was too new (only 7 months) but I would supplement the emeralds...

    I skimmed through a book on saltwater inverts today at work and it said that blue legged hermit crabs can disturb corals and even steal food from them and possibly have a fatal effect on them! I have four blue legged hermit crabs so far. It also said that there should be only one per 10 gallons...

    I got about 10 astrea now.. but i hear if i get hermits they will eat my snails. I need some serious upgrade of CUC to my 55 gallon reef. Any number of snale crab ratio suggestions would be great. Crushed coral is getting kind of filthy due to waste.

    Well, I have no clue what the problem was. As some of you have read; Chubster was a brand new spotted mandarin addition. He was purchased on Feb. 15. He was eating great at the store, and in my tank too. Within 15 seconds of adding him to the tank, he was wolfing down 'pods. The...

    Hi all, Well it has been 2 weeks now since I introduced 3 good sizes of live rock to my 12 gal. cube and aprox. 4 weeks since I had water in it. I have been keeping a close "i" on things like the ammonia, nitrate and nitrite levels as well as pH, and S.G. I know it wouldn't be fare if I said...

    Hi All, While I was looking for my 2 little blue legged hermits this morning, I fixed my eyes on this tiny (1-3 mm size) white thing attached to the glass of the pod. I thought it was just the one until I looked further and noticed they were almost too many to count...1 then 3 then 6 and 9...
  16. Nano Reefs
    Ok, with the upcoming nano build off, I have started to think about what kind of fish and clean up crews I want to keep. I figured I would ask you, the expert on your suggestions. First of all, my goal with the 10g is to have a sumpless design that has smooth flowing lines. Basically, I do not...
