    A few months ago I picked up several pieces of rubble rock to add to my aquarium... mostly as filler rock to fit into all those little spaces. When I picked them up, there were several coral skeletons among them. This was one of them. It had vibrant green insides, but I figured it was dead as...

    Will they get along in the same tank? As some may know from a previous thread, I may have unleashed the wrath of bubble algae into my tank and was thinking of getting ahead of it and unleashing the wrath of an emerald crab on any bubble algae that pops up. Will these two crabs live peacefully...

    I've had my red bali star for a few weeks now, and everything seems fine, but he has these little bubbly, bally, balloony things (whatever you want to call them) on him. Around 3 of them. they're small... but what the heck is it? Is he going to be okay? The edges of his little legs are...
  11. The THINK Tank
    I have had many different experiences using BB systems now, especially for stony coral/ reeftop biotopes now. I have noticed that if the current is strong enough to prevent detrital accumulations under the rock, that stony coral polyps tend to recede in all but the protected areas where there...

    So I am looking at my montipora( I think that is what it is, looks like an acro, but not as hard to keep, brownish polyps) and I see this little teeny CRAB eating the algae off of it! He is so cute! He is brown and tiny,......but....he looks like he has hairy legs! I will never get a pic...
  13. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    I'm starting this thread 'cause I felt I already pulled Eds' thread in a different direction-sorry Ed. Any way, if our tanks are limited in Carbon I would think Fish poop is a very important part of our systems to maintain the health of our corals. I think I have seen this without...

    I know I should do homework on my own before buying any livestock, but I really trust my LFS. He has sold me everything in my tank. After coming on forums like this I am starting to have my doubts. When I question if certain items are OK for my tank and what I have he always says sure. I have...

    Fellas- I know there are no general rules for coral placement and there are lots of variables. How do you determine when a coral is in it's happiest location? How long should you leave a coral in a certain spot before you decide if it likes it there or not? Some like more flow and more light...
  19. The THINK Tank
    Whats the deal with these. I know DOM=dissolve organic matter but I really don't know what it is comprised of ? Is it in our reef tanks already ? What type is useful to corals? Same with bacterioplankton? I am currently looking into the ways our small polyp stonies feed and what I can do to...

    If you saw my posts recently in the BB / Substrate-free forum, then you know we re-did our entire 120-gal reef and now have no plenum, no sand, and 1/2" starboard instead. We love it!! Here's the tank, taken a couple days ago, 1 week post-setup, 50% same water: Supports in the back Fish...
