    Greeting all, For some reason, I have been believing most of the marine fish sold in the LFS are captive bred. Now I realized that I might be wrong about it. So how do I know if my yellow tang, yellow clown goby and firefish are captive bred or wild caught? Thank you in advanced!

    Hi guys, and welcome to my thread on my method of introducing a clown fish to an anemone. I'm making this thread because I haven't seen a good way to get an anemone to host clown fish that is both safe and effective. The most popular method that I have read about involves putting the anemone and...

    My two Occ. Clowns have started hosting my fake anemone! The "anemone" is just one of those squishy rubber balls with rubber things sticking out. I cut it open, rinsed it out, and wrapped it over a clam shell and put it in the tank. Surprisingly, it looked just like a anemone and didn't look...

    Does anyone know if Liveaquaria or any other online stores deworm all their pipefish before shipping? Or is this to much to hope for? Also, I know that Ocean Rider doesn't have a great reputation, but has anyone actually ever ordered what they claim to be captive bred pipefish? Thanks.

    Hi. So recently if you have followed my other threads i had 1 erectus die of malnutrition and stress mostly due to the LFS.

    Hey everyone! I rearranged my tank and put some artificial hitching posts and dropped my temp down to 74. I asked the lfs lots of questions about their seahorses and had them feed them while I was there. They seemed very healthy and ate good. They said they got them from Ocean Riders and...

    Are the Reidi Seahorses very hard to keep? I do understand that Seahorses in general are very delicate and hard to raise but I've heard some breeds are actually more delicate than others. I am alittle undecided on which breed to buy. There is a lfs that has 3 yellow reidi and they say they...

    I love these little guys. I don't think I would ever have a tank without them. I caught this series of pics while trying to work on my tank thread.

    I recently purchased an 8gal biocube to keep a small seahorse in. Right now I just have the tank and haven't purchased rocks or sand yet, so I still have the option of returning it and getting the 14 gal. tank. My plan for this tank was to keep 1 small seahorse (2-3 inch max size) and 1...

    I've dreamed of having a jellyfish tank. I was wondering what anyone knows about set ups for them. I've seen the ones made for jellies but the prices are out of this world.

    I attended the Columbia Marine Aquarium Club meeting in Charleston, SC, last night and came home with a bunch of new tankmates. Now on to the photos. I bought 3 baby Yellow Kelloggi Seahorses for my wife as she only had 1 adult and it was all alone in the 50 gallon tank. They are captive...

    This guy just finished his first year of dental school and was in the middle of moving. He knew he would not have time to properly care for the system anymore. He had been trying to sell his set up for a few weeks and only sold one large rock with some leathers on it. He posted on another...

    Hi ho - I have a chili coral that seems to be the only unhappy resident in my tank. I put it in 3 weeks ago - it was small, but happy and opening at the LFS. I located it in a small grotto in my rocks to shield it from too much light and at first, it seemed happy - even opening for a few...
