    I've had a blue linkia star for over a year in my tank. He's always done real well since I figured out to really maintain the salinity closely. That was the #1 issue. All of his little white spots went away and he was real healthy. He's always been shy and stayed in the rocks when the lights...

    Ok clownfish people this is what works for me....... First you need a bare tank, I like a 20 high. When I say bare I mean NO gravel, no rock live or otherwise.

    Hi, I could use some help, my blue hep tang broke out with ich this morning, one day after I added an angel to the system. The angel is clean. Could the blue hep tang have contracted ich because adding the new fish stressed him out? I dont see any signs of agression. How should I proceed...
