    Which would be better for eating/controlling macroalgae (caluerpa). A lawnmower blenny or a yellow eyed (Kole) tang?

    For about 2 years I've done everything in my power to keep all my parameters where they need to be. I've got the proper lighting. The best hang-on skimmer I could afford. I've done everything by the book. I have some zoas, shrooms, and yellow star polyps in my tank. I gave a couple of each...

    My biggest concern are the tangs. Yes? No? Maybe? I see a lot of people do it. However, a 90 gallon is still just a 4 foot tank. I would love to have a blue tang and Powder Blue Tang. I have: 1 Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) 3 Green Chromis (Chromis viridis) 1 Six Line Wrasse...

    As I mentioned in my other thread, my Leopard Wrasse died and I get home and the Diamond Goby is also dead. I just got these fish Saturday. Why would they be dead in 3 days? I also had a Christmas wrasse, a hawkfish, and cleaner shrimp die within a few days. I mean it's not like I have a...

    A guy in the local reef club is selling a mated pair of maroons for $50. I know they can be uber aggressive, and preferably should be added last. Obviously, this opportunity doesn't come along every day, so I'm wondering if I should go for it. A few factors: 1. Due to my first major...

    Now that I have some nice pieces of sps in my tank what are the best wrasses to keep in a tank for prospecting pests?

    Wondering what a good fish would be to pick off red flatworms in my 35g. I've heard different opinions about 6 line wrasses and am curious if there might be a better candidate?
