clown trigger

    Cant figure out what caused my lil Clown Trigger fish to die only 2 days in the tank. He immediately went to a hole in the rock when introduced to the tank. Then came out 2 days later and died. WTF??? He was very small and in a 55 gal tank... Tank has been up and running for 5 months now. All...

    I recently purchased a Harlequin Tusk and can't seem to find too much info on this guy. He is a beautiful fish but he is spastic. He darts up, down, and all around my 125. He is definately freaking out my tank mates. A clown trigger, humuhumu, dogface puffer, and about 50 chromis who are all...

    Hello all, We have a 450g reef and are currently filling up a 360g predator tank to move the animals out of a 150. They both feed into a 300g sump/fuge/skimmer tub. We're running two Euro-Reef RS-250 skimmers. Nitrates creep up to 20 sometimes but a 150g water change takes care of that...

    I have been getting conflickting information about adding a trigger to a reef tank. I have heard they are not reef safe. I have also heard that they are coral save but not invert save. Any thoughts?

    Here is my 125 FOWLR. I bought this tank in 2003 from AquaZoo. :rolleyes: We broke it down in 2005 when we moved to FB, and didn't get it back up until November 2007. Before I knew TRT or NFMAS existed, I set up the tank they way it was before, crushed coral substrate.. BAH. I changed it to...

    Ok, so after reading in the photography forums, I decided to download Ulead Smart Saver Pro and see how it works.. It is amazing for optimizing images. So, to give something cool, I took pictures of my Clown Trigger and Dogface Puffer eating 1/2 an oyster I gave em. Let's see how this works...

    As some of you know, I am moving. I took the live rock out of my tank very slowly and put it into a garbage can. It sat for about 2-3 min with no water then I finally started siphoning water from the tank into the live rock. It took another 3 min to cover the live rock. After half the tank...

    1. The smaller clown does a little twitch dance in front of the larger one. It deliberatley swims in front of it and goes on it side and then twitches. 2. A hermit crab, was climbing up the bottom of the glass (maybe only an inch or 2) on some algae I didn't clean off well enough and actually...

    ... that you have ever given a fish of yours? Cmon, you know a lot of us do it - we think of stupid names like Nemo for our clown. Here I'd love to see people list the kind of fish, and their given name (plus any relevant story as to how the said fish acquired the name). In college I had a...

    I have seen alot of threads and ppl here love pics. I haven't seen a thread of this sort so I love pics and would like to see your favorite fish (in your tank) or if you still have that first fish (in your tank). Let's post them and brag a little about them.

    I wrote a thread already asking for someone to suggest a goby that wont jump. No one responded hahha. Well I figured I'd try again, but narrow it down a little first. Which one of these gobies would I have the best luck with if: I want it to not jump out of my tank and I want the goby not...

    Does anyone use a pvc check valve from their sump to the tank to prevent the siphon? I was considering using one when I put my new sump in, but not sure if it would work properly or not.

    I went to my LFS and had a chat with the manager for about 2 hours (it was slow for them so I got all the time i wanted :rotflmao:) We basically went over 2 different types of tank builds. A passive one where I can have my fish, inverts, and coral. Seems awesome but the cost is like 5:1 to a...

    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...

    I figured I'd finally post some pics- I don't have any new full tank shots, and I won't bore you all with the history of the tank too much... I'll post a few of the original shots, and then hopefully I'll be able to keep it up from there... Original setup in my last house- taken right after...

    Hello everyone, Since I am new to TRT, thanks to FatTony for introducing me to the site, I thought I would share some pictures and information about my tank setup. I am definitely one who has learned and is still learning from experience and has bought many pieces of equipment more than...
