    So my tank is almost a year old now and to celebrate the power went out for about 30 hours. Got a generator on and the powerheads moving water after about 24 hours. Lost a pygmy angel, fromia star, and my radiate urchin. Luckily that was all. The corals seem to be okay. Anyways I...

    hey guys! my 2 cleaner shrimp are carrying eggs by fertilizing each other as they are hermaphrodites when sexually mature... so my question is, is raising cleaner babies difficult? should I put them in a separate tank with just an air stone then remove the adults when they release the young? I...

    Hey everyone!! Happy Sunday! So I've got a really cool fire shrimp, who likes to hang out in caves and what not and has a station set up in a crevice on the front of a rock so he's very visible. I got a Damsel yesterday and he seems to be roaming and eating well and having a good time in the...

    My 75 gallon is up and cycling with sand, and I will be adding live rock this week. Unfortunately, the lighting that comes with the tank got left at my mom' 2 states away when I moved. She is coming down anyway for my sister's wedding, but it wont be for another 6 weeks. I am curious if when the...

    Hi, I have a six month old 30 gallon marine tank. I originally set up the tank as I love Cleaner Shrimps. But for some reason any Cleaner Shrimps I add last from a few hours to a few days. I also have a Blood Shrimp, two Sexy Shrimp and three Peppermint Shrimps, all of which are months old...

    Hi, I have had a 30 gallon cube tank up and running for six months with a dsb. I have dosed the tank with food to establish a healthy bacteria population. Recently I added two baby clowns, one bubble tip anemone, and a feather duster, all healthy. I also added in two Cleaner Shrimp. Both were...

    Well i was using some gel superglue to secure a rock to another rock in my tank that had a leather on it, and well my super nosey skunk shrimp stuck his claws in the glue and now his claws are well glued... seems to be driving him nuts too as he keeps trying to get it off. Hope he is still able...

    Evening all, I was still basking in the glow of the Packers comeback win last night when I went over to my tank and saw my cleaner shrimp swimming around in the corner. Next thing I know one of my clowns swam near him, so he moved closer to the korallia 425 & all of a sudden he's half way into...

    I am observing a curious symbiotic relationship between the new cleaner shrimp I added to the tank & my scopas tang... The tang seems to be addicted to the cleaner shrimps 'feelers', which the shrimp is more than happy to do for the scopas all day long. It is really neat to watch and as a newbie...
