I have a 29 gallon established reef tank that is just about 1 year old.
I have about 30 pounds of live rock with a fine white sand substrate.
My salinity is 1.022 currently. Working back up as I had a salinity DISASTER and it got down to 1.016.
I have a fluval 405 working on the tank
I have a chocolate chip star fish that is not looking to good the last few days. he is usually moving around the tank but the last few days he has been in a corner with some of his arms curled it. I have tested the water and everything is good.
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...

I have had a salt tank for about 5 years and have decided to take the "plunge" into a 100 gallon "touch tank" for my high school classroom. I am coming to you all to see what you would recommend for the tank. As experts, I really would like to hear your opinions. My tank came from...
Okay I got a 55gal tank that i havent even filled up with water, but i'm already thinking of the critters i want. It will be a FOWLR and it probably wont have a sump. Also the lighting will be just a standard flouresent that come with the tank, hopefully only for a little bit. What i want is...
tiny rant... why can't I cut and paste???
How many fish can I have? I have a 110 gallon with wet/dry 75 until I get more LR. Then I plan to have a 20 gallon sump. I have only about 30 lbs lr. 50 lbs live coquina sand.
1 pj cardinal
2 false percula
1 purple dotty back
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)
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...
