    Help! I'm fairly new to saltwater tanks and have had mine set up for a few months. I recently got a Blue Linckia Sea Star about a week and a half ago. I acclimated him per the instructions and the first day he climbed all over the tank. For the next few days he sat in one spot on the glass, I...

    I've had a blue linckia for 5 1/2 months, and it's done really well until a few days ago.

    I'm taking down my 110 reef, because I am trying to sell my house, and will have to move within the next few months. I know trying to sell this as a combo is futile, so I'm not going to screw around and try to sell this stuff all at once. I'm parting everything. I have had the tank set up for...

    It is the time of year for the annual Redwing meeting at Dirk Griffins Dungeon in Redwing. For any of you who dont know Dirk, he is like a wholesaler posing as an insurance agent. Dirk has a basement full of tanks at his work, all livestock is for sale, and cheap at that. He also has two...

    Bought last night at LFS in MI. Seems to be doing OK. They just recieved them Wed. Not real big but great color. They still have some left. Would be great in a nano tank.

    If there's any group orders going in the near future for snails/crabs could someone PM me? I don't have access to the member forums any more so I can't really see when things are going on. Thanks.
