    HELP!!!! I am seriously considering of getting a juvenile chevron tang. I have had bad luck with a powder blue in the past with ich. I believe the ich came on the fish and it was just my luck the eggs were planted. From what I have read, the chevron should be more hardy, but would like some...

    Well, who am I kidding? It was bound to happen so why resist? Over the last few months the wife and I have talked about what would be my summer project this year since she knows that I HAVE to have something to occupy my time otherwise insanity sets in. I told her that my plan was to teach a...

    I just spent three hours reading through the DSB myth thread and decided in all fairness to put up a pro DSB thread. Although I have not been in the hobby as long as many on here have. I research constantly for ways to improve the quality of life for the animals I choose to own. This is in no...

    WIth a nod to the favorite blenny thread. WHat is your favorite fish? For me it would probably be a Jawfish. Either the Bluespot or Pearly.

    Last night I added a powder blue to my 225. Woke up this morning and the Chevron is relentlessy circling him like a shark and beating the crap out of him whenever he isnt hiding in a hole. Im thinking the hour of abuse I have watched is already enough and I should try to catch the PB and...

    I have a 72 gallon tank w/29 gallon sump. Mag 7 return pump and a MJ1200 mod for added flow. ASM G3 skimmer had a gatevalve mod but took it off last week. I just didnt like it :arg: The lighting on the tank is 440 watts of VHO about 4" off of the water. PCI 1/10 HP chiller. I have two fish...

    OK, here we go... I bought a 90g reef-ready tank from Sea Dreams to replace the 55g tank sitting in my family room. I wanted something a little larger without going to a 6' tank. I will be running it with a 45g sump which should give me a nice volume of water. The sump used to run DNGSPOT's...

    So there is this 6-7" Chevron tang that has been down at the LFS for several months. He came in in pretty bad shape but has completely turned around and looks great. Im just curious if there is any reason I SHOULDNT add him. 225 gallon loaded predominantly SPS tank. Current fish are...

    Last time you went to your LFS, how much did you spend? This is Not including times you went to scope out a new shipment, or to just chat, but for buying supplies, or living stuff. I was at mine yesterday and spent the most I've spent on a batch of coral so far. Spent $76. Ouch. Paid $25 on...

    Well after taking my tang out of my main tank to try and spare the others, I woke up this morning to find my clwonfish and coral beauty with spots. It just breaks my heart watching them go one by one and it is not a fast death by any means. My hospital tank is not big enough for everybody so...
