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...
My 10 Gal...Is Cleaner Then ever...still havent gotten a test kit but im going to let it cycle a moneth or so more befor i start adding corals...and then im going to start with frags...and let them grow themselves into the tank...i want to do a mushroom and pollyp tank ... if anyone knows the...
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...
Ok, so I have decided to do a build post. I plan to keep softies in this tank, and the LR I got has some beautiful mushrooms and kenya trees. Here is what I have:
- 20g Long tank
- 25lb Caribsea Caribbean LS
- ~25lb Beautiful LR (from Jojon60)
- Orbit 65W Dual Actinic lighting
Okay, now i know this from freshwater fish, DONT EVER GO WITH A SMALL TANK.. well we did a starter 30 gallon salt and now have made our way to making our 55 ex-fresh into a salt. ANYWHOOO..
what is the best way about going about transferring a couple things (ricordea for sure, maybe xenia) to...
So, first blog ever..on one of our most awesome endeavors we have embarked on together. one week ago we started our first saltwater. currently have 2 fresh (90gal & 20 hex), have always wanted salt! we had a 55 gal long waiting to make into another fresh, well, we love live rock sooo much, we...
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.
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...
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...
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...
i just think it's amazing that people say i "need" 50 hermits, and 50 snails for my 50gal.... so how many do you have? your total gallons?
right now i have 10 blue legged hermits, about 5 unknown hermits, a peppermint shrip, and no snails. my tank is new so i'll add everything as i need...
so i have these little hermits walking around my newly set up tank. they were in the rocks and seemed to be doing well while i was cooking, but now that they're in the tank some of the bigger ones are dead. not sure what they are or if they're reef safe. someone mentioned that the big one is a...
I am pretty new here so here is my official TheReefTank thread
I started my first reef tank in August 2006. Originally I wanted to start a planted fresh water Amazon tank. My plan was to be able to have a freshwater ray. However, I had a friend that was into...

i've got this red or purple or burgundy :) colored algae (or at least i think it's algae) growing in a few location of my tank.
it seems to prefer high flow areas, as the three biggest patches grow directly in front of the CLS and sump return outlets. it doesn't get very long, it stays pretty...
so it's time to get started...
<O:p</O:phaven't had a real reef tank ever. i tried once ten years ago, but everything crashed when i went on a three week trip. keeping a reef tank has been one of my greatest joys and also my biggest defeats when my old tank crashed. <O:p
i have a...
approaching the two month mark and things are going well.
4 tank bred ocellaris clowns
blue legged hermits
2 peppermint shrimp
2 emerald crabs
sally litefoot crab
the 20g tank had a crash on Friday night - either the flatworms died and caused the skimmer to overflow into the sump or vice versa... I found out about it at 1:30AM (Saturday) and performed a major water change... the anemone, and two clowns didn't look good.. didn't see the blenny... xenia...
