    I come home the other day to find that my mom had bought a clown tang for my birthday..... not knowing much about fish she didn't ask a whole bunch of questions, and being quite new to salt I don't know a whole bunch (except to do research before doing anything). So Im scrambling around the net...

    Should a clown fish be introduced at the same time as an anemone or after the anemone? Does it matter? If the clown has been in the tank for a while, then an anemone is introduced, will it accept it as a host. I know their is a chance that a clown fish wont take to an anemone, but is their a...

    Yesterday I got a juvinile yellow tang. Looks really healthy! Other than two Banghii Cardinals it is all alone in a 180 gallon reef tank. Problem is, all it does is swim like crazy in front of one small section of glass playing with its reflection. It doesn't spend any time eating, just...

    I bought this at a LFS about 6 months ago. It's slow growing and my clown tang absolutely stays away from it. Has any one seen this type? And here's a full view of my 40 gal. just set up in September. Being frugal and all, majority of my rock was dead coral rock, about 60lbs., bought at a...

    I'm just trying to figure out how much damage a 3" deceased clown tang would affect a 125 gallon. I can't find him, he was alive last night but looking poorly, guessing he's dead now. How much do you think that will affect an established tank, with 175 lb LR, Emperor 400, and a skimmer? WAGZ

    Does anybody know any good ideas of catching fish in a 125 reef with 175 lbs of LR???? I have been trying for the past couple days with no luck. The fish do seem to be coming closer to the net, thinking it's part of their habitat, and was wondering if it would be safe for an extended period of...

    I'm trying to locate the problem of my recent Ich outbreak in my 125. Nothing in the tank had changed when it broke out. My Blue Angel is the worst, and then there are my Rock Beauty Angel, Scopas Tang, Clown Tang, and formerly a Mandarin Goby, and a Bicolor Blenny (one died from ich...
