    I ordered some fish/inverts from a different vendor... nothing too unusual, but nice to get something new... and... you can use your new discount if you were lucky enough to get a UPC. I'm not positive the barcode works, so you may have to enter the code at the bottom or have them to enter it as...

    Hey everyone! I have changed my mind (again), and am planning on trying an aggressive tank. I have a 65g and was planning on getting a SnowFlake Eel and a Toby puffer. Does anyone know of a cleanup crew that won't be gobbled up by these guys? :lol:

At the time of purchase it was full of green hair algae. When I got it home I brushed each rock and cleaned each rock before I put it in...

    i'm checking to see if i have enough clean up crew in my 14 gal bio. i used the calc at reefcleaners.org http://reefcleaners.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=20&Itemid=33 and came up with a list. (its at home so can't give specs now) the thing is the calculating system there...

    Hi all, I have a 54 gallon setup (no sump) that I've had for a while now. I have no fish in it as my clownfish died a while back and due to being busy the tank has fallen on hard times. I drained pretty much all of the water out of it after I had off the charts high phosphate readings recently...

    You guys have any Nerite snails?? i'm looking to up the CUC in my tank and supposedly they eat Cyano...

    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.

    I'm trying hard to get myself ready to move in the near future, and any way I look at it, the tank just won't survive the trip. When I get to where I'm going, I'll start over with a bigger set-up. Until then this is what I have for sale: 45 Gallon glass tank 20 gal custom sump metal stand...

    I lost most of my clean up crew in the plastic tub basement reef. Astreas, turbo, nassarious, cucumbers, and fire shrimp perished. I have a few limpets and one turbo snail left I think. What do you experienced BB reefers think I should buy for reef janitors?

    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...

    I have read that cerith snails are good at digging through the substrate. Do any of you have them? If so, how much of the substrate do they turn over? Are we talking the top half inch or will they get down a couple of inches?
