    Hi guys, I have a fifty gallon reef tank and I made a list of potential fish please let me know if you think they are compatible and good choices for a 50 gallon aquarium. I don't plan on adding all of them so let me know which ones are your favorites and which ones you have had trouble with...

    I have a 55 gallon reef setup that's well established with many corals and about a 30 gallon sump. It's got a shallow sand bed of about 2" and some really nice cave hiding spots. It is rimless and topless but due to huge evaporation issues we are looking at fashioning some type of cover. After a...
  5. Reef Fish
    I am looking to convert my 55 gallon to a salt water tank. I am aware of all the set up and requirements, my question is figuring out what fish go together best, this is my first saltwater but I do have a lot of experience. I would like fish that are a little more unique, I do want shrimp and...

    Hey guys, im starting to cycle a 125 predator tank. I already have a rimless 100 reef tank but now I have the urge for the more agressive and bigger fish. This tank is 6 foot long with a 4 foot sump/refugium. Everything is ready to go but now I want to stock it. Please let me know what fish can...

    First off first post on this forum! Just finished my DIY pumps/overflow and have water in the tank (FINALLY!) so I'll have pictures up soon. Today is all about me getting my salt in and letting that cycle for a day. So my question is once I get all my live rock (getting it from an established...

    Hi everyone, What shrimp and gobies pair up together the best? I was looking to get a pair since I read about how cool they are! The only thing is that my sand bed is only 2-3". Will that matter a whole bunch? Should I just stick to small gobies and shrimp? I am so looking forward to getting a...

    Fairly new to the reefkeeping business but just curious, are there any other types of fish that are compatible with anemones other than clownfish? If so, what types of fish would be compatible? Any answers, or helpful comments would be greatly appreciated :)
  13. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Looked up on the org and got a few threads about it. There were a lot of conflicting answers. Anyone there who tried it (I think saxman was one of them) said there were no problems since Leaf Fish are slow, methodical eaters like horses and wouldn't compete for food. Also, from what I've read...

    I bought a feather duster today and it came on a small frag of live rock. About an hour after being in the water (fully opened), my shrimp has started to give it some attention. It looks mostly like the Tiger Pistol Shrimp is just removing it from the rock, but is he eating it? I was told he was...

    I have a 20 gallon tank, with 2 clown fish and 1 PJ cardinal. I'm going to get another cardinal but I also want to get 2 more fish that will get along with what I already have. I also have a rainbow coral and my clown fish are in love with their anemone (as most are I presume). Any suggestions?

    Hey guys, I was just wondering if i could put a maroon clownfish in my 55gal reef tank along with my ocelaris which is already in there. Or will they fight and one will die? lol

    I just bought a sailfin tang yesterday and today found out some one is giving theirs away also. Would they be okay together? Also should i be feeding anything special? Thanks!

    OK, here's my fish list for the next month or 2... flame angelfish, 2 spotted cardinal fish, a lawnmower blenny, 2 ocellaris clowns and a sleeper gold head goby. Will they be ok if i introduce some BTA's and basic soft corals/LPS's down the road? Thanks!!

    I recently just bought two emerald crabs to help out with bubble algae and I was thinking about adding a peppermint shrimp to battle aiptasia. I read somewhere that the emerald crabs could possibly go after certain shrimps. Has anyone made this combo work or will it turn into battle royale?
