    I had a bicolor angel, tomini tang, and a koran angel. The tomini tang and bicolor angel looked perfectly fine, but the Koran angel had small white stuff on his rear fin. I thought it was lymph so I did not worry too much about death or the other fish getting it. I wake up this morning and both...

    So last night I went and picked up a 6 line wrasse and a mandarin (hindsight says this was a poor choice) for my 125 gallon tank. I currently have a damsel and lawnmower blenny and a foxface lo. The tank has been cycled for 3 weeks I've been checking ammonia weekly because I'm paranoid and it's...

    Hey guys...just checking in with you. New tank is up and running and is beautiful. I have a minor bacterial bloom now and I'm changing tons of water to alleviate this. But my main problem is, I have put in 3-4 shrimp over the last couple weeks and they keep dying. They acclimate fine, as...

    Hey guys. So my sebae I've had is freaking me out. Water parameters have been in check with religious water changes. I am having a burst of coralline algae spreading but the sebae is spEwing his guts. Is it on it's way to anemone heaven? He still feels sticky on his tentacles and isn't...

    So i have had my midnight angel for quite some time now, atleast a couple of months. I bought him with the understanding he might eat a zoa hear or there. For a while now my Birdsnest has been looking a little mangy, white spots appearing hear and there, I could not figure out what was going on...

    Ok folks, this is complex. I am a 12 year hobbyist and keep 3-6 tanks at a time. Bare with me here... it's all important for diagnosis. History: I have been struggling with large angels for the past few months. I had not had trouble for quite awhile before that. I have been killing...

    We have a little bit of a mystery with the death of our fire shrimp and am throwing it out there to see if anyone has some insight. We have a 29g biocube that has been cycled for a month with live rock/live sand. Our shrimp has been in our cycled tank for about two weeks, perfectly healthy...

    The other day my shrimp died out of the blue it seemed. A few days have gone by and my mandarin isn't looking so hot. The rest of the fish are fine though which is why I'm confused. I checked the water parameters and everything appears to be on point. At least what I'm able to test. Salinity...

    So my dad had a setup where he had some live rock, about 7 clownfish, and 2 tangs. He decided to add two Green Flowerpot Coral, 2 emerald crabs, and 1 mandarin goby. Before he added these new elements everything was fine, and happy, but the day after he added these new things, today, fish...

    My fake clown was killed yesterday by a combination of the yellow tail clown and the tomato clown. The three had co-habited perfectly peacefully for two years and then suddenly yesterday they hunted and harried poor little Nemo to his death. Strange and very sad. Why would their behaviour...

    Hey Guys, So I've been keeping a small colony of Hairy Mushrooms for about three months without issue. Today after work I noticed one has restricted and looked like it has something in its mouth. Thoughts? Split? Death? Do you think it decided to eat something it shouldn't have and I should...

    I spoke to someone who's been in the hobby for over 20 yrs and he said that a sand bed could be dangerous because it holds up the trash an ammonia and if you disturb it it could crash your system. He said he had it happen to him before so I would like a sand bed but would a good clean up crew...

    So I own a 29g saltwater tank and have had it up and running for about 5 months or so now. The ONLY problem I am currently experiencing is that I cant seem to keep any of my janitors alive for more than a week or two (had blue leg, red leg, emerald crab, and all types of snails). My water...
