    I fed my fish the night before and everyone ate. Then I wake up the next morning with more than half of them dead or dying. I have a 150 gallon tank with a 1' eel maybe a couple inches bigger, a harlequin tusk, sailfin tang, emperor angel, bicolor angel, koran angel. All the angels are juvenile...

    Hello I have had my porcupine puffer for almost 15 months now and he’s acting very strange. Saturday, he went up to the glass for food but gave me the cold shoulder. This isn’t too crazy, he has done this before because he just woke up. Sunday, I walked down in the morning and he was upside...

    Well I decided to try a royal gramma on Tuesday. The fished looked to be doing very good at my LFS. I brought the fish home and dripped him for an hour or a little over. I put him in the tank and he went right to the bottom against a rock. I figured he was hiding. after about 10 minutes he was...

    Hey guys I bought 3 Blue/Green reef chromis about two weeks ago and they have now dwindled down to one. I found the two always in the morning just laying on the bottom. My water parameters are normal and I know that chromis have a tendency to do this. My question is should I bring this one...

    Last week I added 10 snails to my tank and within 2 days all of them had quit moving and spewed out a white, stringy substance that almost looks like they're covered in cob webs. I didn't smell them but I just assumed they were dead and removed them. Last night I added 6 more to the tank and 3...

    Got 55 lbs of dead rock that was once live rock, the LFS said they just rinsed it off and let it dry out. It was $1.50 a pound, and the rock looks pretty good. My question is if this is going into a new tank that needs to be cycled, do I need to cook the rock or anything?

    So my tank has been up and running for three months. Current stock is Kole Tang, two Oc clowns, and a royal gramma with a few zoas. I had a yellow clown goby for 13 days until he died from not eating. Back on 9/18 when I added my clowns, I saw one had some white spots on it and it cleared up...

    So after 13 days my YCG died. Poor guy refused to eat hardly anything. Definitely died of starvation. After doing more reading I will not get another. Seems hit or miss if they'll eat or not.

    I'll try to keep this short ... About 4 weeks ago I got 2 ocellaris clownfish to start my tank. 3-4 days after having been in the main tank, one died for no reason I could find other than maybe he was bullied to death by the other clownfish. The next day I got another clownfish and they have...

    So for the last week when I have the pumps off for maintenance my Royal Gramma likes to creep inside the grate into the powerhead and play hide and seek. I know this and am aware of him at all times. So just now I was feeding them and acclimating a shrimp for an hour. Having a brain fart, I...

    Right now I have two maroon clown fish on the verge of dying. I had lost everything in my tank, including snails/cleanup crew. I also found my two damsels dead.

    Hi, I have a six month old 30 gallon marine tank. I originally set up the tank as I love Cleaner Shrimps. But for some reason any Cleaner Shrimps I add last from a few hours to a few days. I also have a Blood Shrimp, two Sexy Shrimp and three Peppermint Shrimps, all of which are months old...
