    Do you think these two could be tank mates? the puffer is about 3-4" and the starfish is about 6" tip to tip.

    Hello to all, I am a newbie to the reef tank in all aspects. This is my first saltwater tank and I am hooked. I think the last fish tank i had was when i was 10 and i never took care of it. Good thing I went straight to a semi-big complicated tank. But everything has been going so easy and...

    Ok...few questions before I get started. 1. What do you do about clean-up crews? Most of the fish that you would have in a FO tank eat the snails and stuff, right? 2. How much flow? I was planning on 2 Hydor 4's and my sump return (1 on each end of the tank (powered by a Mag 9.5) 3. How...

    This is in regards to the warning about my chocolate chip starfish. I was warned that he'd get into trouble and make having any corals a shortlived adventure. I hoped that my target feeding of the star would allow me to keep him and proceed on with my additions of soft corals to the tank. I...

    I have been here for just a couple days, reading up and learning. I found you guys after I had the bad experience of finding out that my hubby had purchased me a gift card from Aqua Zoo for Christmas 2 days before they closed. I came here trying to find out the details. I am fortunate in that...

    How hard are sea stars to take care of? What's an 'easy' one to have? the Local LFS has a chocolate chip(I think that's right) one, if i'm not mistaken, they've had this little guy for a few weeks, so he's definitely hardy. . .do they need anything special? Still trying to find the right...
  16. "Soft" corals
    I have some waving Xenia and lately it looks like it is being eaten by something. I do have a few blue legged hermit crabs but they have not been an issue in the past. My fish are reef save too (Yellow Tang, Purple Tank, Maroon Clowns, Chromes, and a Goby).
  17. The THINK Tank
    Ok, so I'm at a LFS talking to the owner about trace minerals and such...he asks what water I'm using for makeup...I say RO/DI...he states he uses tap water. Say's no way could I maintain all these tanks on RO/DI, it would be cost prohibitive....peripheral tanks around the store, must be about...

    Okay, I purchased a "Bali Orange Spot Star" last night - seems to be doing well in the tank. Really gorgeous star, the "top" looks like a chocolate chip star, but it is bigger, and the "chips" are slightly taller, and bright orange. Can anyone ID this, as I cannot find any other information...

    Okay, as many of you know I currently have a 125G SPS tank,.. the only reason this tank ever ended up with water in it was a comedy skit worth of errors,.. the fact that it got lights and coral never should have happened, then I went SPS with it, which also never should have happed,.. For the...
