    I saw a beautiful urchin at World of fish called the Flower Urchin. I had heard that these were a big no no in aquariums because they were deadly. I just did more reading on them and everywhere I look says that there toxin can cause paralysis and even death, so what gives! I bet World of Fish...

    Which would you be. You can go based on attitude, associated, or looks (i havn't met anyone yet who looked like their coral or fish, unlike dogs). for me... I guess just look at my avatar...:lol:

    Man...I just watched this show on Discovery called "Killer Jellyfish", and I'm in awe. it's about a jellyfish called irukandji. And it's the size of your thumbnail, but it has a sting thats over 1000 times more potent than a tarantula. It's the most toxic creature discored so far. VERY intense...

    Okay, I know I'm tossing myself up for serious smackdown, but I have to ask. What do I need to have an octopus? Is it even feasible? I know it's prolly not reefsafe and that it'll eat any other fish in the tank... oh and the fact that they're escape artists. But, what else? I just did my...

    I am getting bored with the community FW tank I have. I am thinking of converting it to salt. There aren't any fish that I am really attached to in there. Mainly tetras and such. I got some Silver Dollars and they devoured my plants. It is a 45 gal corner tank. So. it is nice and tall/deep...

    I was at my LFS and they got in a octopus. The tag says it will get up to 12"s, not sure if that was body size or tentacle length. This one he has in a ball is no bigger then around 1.5 - 2 inches. Do they come out during the day or just hide in rocks? What type of tank setup would be best. I...

    Hello, I went to my LFS and asked them about ordering me a blue ringed octopus. They told me it was too dangerous and they wouldnt carry it. They suggested I get a mimic octopus and that they could order one for me. I looked everywhere on the internet for their care but came up empty...
