    I have had a Scooter Blenny in my tank for about a year and a half. 30 gallon tank with plenty of live rock and at least 5 to 6 corals. I have never fed him copepods and feed my fish Mysis shrimp. All seemed fine up until about a month ago. He has been living with all of the fish in the tank for...

    Hi everyone. Looking for some advice. One of my clown fish died (well actually disappeared!!). I have absolutely no idea what has happened - they were around 2 year old and all water parameters are perfect, and there has been no body found! Anyway, my second clown is sulking a bit having...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the hobby and to this forum. I set up my 60 gal DT with 10 gal sump at the start of November with about 40 lbs of LR. It had been by buddy's tank before he upgraded, and he left about 1.5" of sand in the bottom with some water so I could get a jump on the bacteria. I...

    So my wife said today that our horseshoe crab "Tank" got sucked into the powerhead and died while I was away at a meeting. He has gotten stuck to it before but ususally on his shell side then he waits around for one of us to notice him, turn off the PH and set him free again. Does anyone know...

    Very strange but my perfectly healthy and eating saddleback died yesterday. No warning signs until I see him flopping at the bottom. Freaked out and checked my levels. Ph 8.2 ammonianitrate and nitrite at 0. I have no clue what happened unless the foxface stuck him. The fox was just introduced...

    In earlier posts, I have mentioned that my nem has been moving a bit around the tank lately. The other day it made a big stride and basically ran over our jasmine polyps (eight tentacle/ clove polyp...etc). We thought, for sure, that the polyps were goners. However, after a day or two the...

    Well as the title says my red scooter blenny died. I'm not sure why exactly. The night before he was acting normal sifting sand on the bottom. Scooting around. The next day I come home from class his face is bright red and his fins turned black. I figured he was dead so I went to scoop him out...

    I have had almost every fish that i have bought die later after it has been in the tank. My first 2 fish were added about a month into the tank and they were 2 clowns. About a month later I added a yellow mimic tang. The tang died about 2 weeks later. About a week after that one died I added a...

    :bawling: I think my pistol shrimp killed him during the night. I found the cb right outside of his cave. The pistol has always been aggressive and the angel sleeps next to that rock so I believe the shrimp killed him. The angel was eating and swimming around last night with full colors and...

    I just found one of my clown fish in the center back section of my 29 gallon Bio Cube, dead. He was one of a pair that have been in my aquarium together for over 2-years. I am really sad and want to replace him. Is there anything I should know about placing a new clown fish with the older...

    I dont know why but the 2lower heads of my frogspawn have died , and the upper 4 are alive and seem ok. Should I be concerned about toxins from the death of the lower 2? If heads die off is that un healthy for the remaining frogspawn? Any and all info is appreciated. :fish::fish: ( I'm sad that...
