    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...

  4. "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).

    Thinking about getting a star fish. My tank is only 25 gallon and I allready have two clowns an anemone and a clam. Should I even be concidering a star fish? If so are there any that would be comfortable in my system? The tank is well established with lots of little critters popping up...

    We have a new tank established. We had put some fish in it. Then we added a Chocolate Chip Star and a Cleaner Shrimp. After two days we did not see this Chocolate Chip Star anymore. My wife and I were getting nervous so we looked through the tank, we moved things it could be hiding in, behind...

    Am easy going, good will, spirited guy. Seeking home for two innocent beautiful chocolate chip stars (they are just as nice as any other star). Moving out of state and cannot take these creatures with me to South Dakota. These stars are not considered reef safe. Have two, to give away to a good...

    Just a matter of my own curiosity, but for those of you who have starfish, do yours ever sometimes climb up onto the glass and splat their stomach out all over? :D My chocolate chip star seems to do this when it wants me to spot feed it. Normally I drop in a big chunk of food and it finds it on...
