    Hi All. Was going to ask for help in ID-ing this little chap (1st pic) but he turns out to be calcinus morgani. He was already in the reef tank when I got it. Apparently he's been in there about 2 years. He's a busy guy, and AFAIK he hasn't been at all destructive to the soft corals. As my...

    Hey y'all Posting once again. About to add two small Damsel into my tank. My nitrites, nitrates, Ph, and ammonia levels are all in range. I'm adding them as "Canary Fish," to make sure the tank is actually sustainable. My question is: what should I get in terms of a clean-up crew? I have a 90...
