    Question is why do Nems ball up? I know it is normal behavior. I have had my Ritteri for awhile now. Not my first ritteri, Tank params fine. Radion LED lights that I have been acclimating it to for the last 7 weeks. up to 80% intensity currently about 650-700 PAR. I last fed it about a week ago...

    Hey guys, Another quick question here. My husband and I just added a pair clown fish, pajama cardinals, and a blenny to our tank. I've bought frozen brine shrimp and mysis shrimp to feed them as that is what my local fish store recommended. The fish love it, as well as my peppermint shrimp...

    I am looking for fish for my 40g that will really stand out. I am looking at a mandarin but I think my cleaner wrasse will eat all of the pods. Also, mimic pufferfish if anyone has had experience with those. Suggestions please, :)

    I started my 29Gal tank 2 weeks ago. My LFS got me started and for someone new to saltwater, I just trusted everything he said. He owns the store so who else would know more about saltwater tanks than this guy. Anyway, my 29g has a heater, a HOB Filter and lighting. He got me started with...
  5. Anemones
    Hi all, I have a pair of red sea clown fish who LOVED their green bubble tip anemone. The anemone died because of a sudden spike in nitrates, fortunately it was the only tank inhabitant I lost. It took me about 4 weeks to stabilize the tank and get control of the situation. In the meantime...

    Ok, I was wanting to add a Royal Gramma into my 40 gallon breeder tank. I currently have 2 Ocellaris clowns that I added at the same time about 4 to 5 months ago. My tank has been up and running for 10 to 11 months. Would there be any problems adding a Gramma to the tank? I have heard adding the...

    I have a couple of questions about my new green BTA. Last night, it kind of pulled itself down into a crack between some rocks and pulled in its tentacles considerably. This morning, after I increased the intensity of my Ai Prime to 100%, he is back out and looking very healthy. First question...

    I have been watching an interesting game going on in my tank, and wondered if anyone else has seen anything like this. First, I started dosing for my corals... Reef Foundation ABC, based on testing by my LFS. At the same time, I got a new light for my Nuvo Micro 30 - an Ai Prime. Anyhow, several...

    Since I haven't posted any pictures in a while I figured today's little discovery was a perfect reason to do so. A few months ago we rescued a green BTA from a not so well maintained LFS. It's just a mom and pop type place in a very small neighboring town and the owner is either unwilling or...

    So last weekend I got my first baby clown. Orange with a hint of black trim.. After water change and clean up everything is running great so I picked up the other clown. A little bigger Black & White.. I could not wait to see how they got along and I can't believe it! They were like long...

    Hey all, I'm planning to set up a tank at the office that will only house two clown fish. Hoping maybe they'll breed someday :D But I remember reading about a horrific crash involving aerosol sprays like fabreeze on this forum :( I'm going to check with the office cleaning crew tomorrow to...

    Hi, I have a tank and am looking into some other fish. For the clown fish I only feed them pellets. I am looking at Chromis's and Basslet's and was wondering if they will just eat the same pellets or if I need to feed them different food?

    Did another 50g water change this morning, well technically yesterday morning. algae issue is about cleared up...just a little "loose" algae remaining, which should be gone on its own soon. A little toothbrush work will take care of it easily enough. Tested parameters in the evening Salinity...

    Would just like to hear thoughts about my tank, any changes that you would make? I like it now but feel like its not quite right yet. The tank is 1.5 years old.

    I've had 2 clown fish in my reef tank for about a year already along with a few other types of fish. I just lost a fish and was planning on replacing it with 2 new small clowns. The 2 I have now are about 2 inches long and not aggressive at all. Can I get away with another pair or will they...
