    Hello TRT. I've researched high and low for a good answer, but I've drawn a blank at every turn, and I'm hoping someone who's had the same problem will have the solution! The problem seems relatively mild, I have a porcupine puffer, Porky, who's not very old (I'd say ~1 year), still small for...

    I need help clarifying what my sailfin blenny will eat. All that I read before introducing it to my tank was that they are herbivores but mine is eating brine shrimp. Is this just that there's insufficient algae (aka a staving fish)?

    I have a question about a good diet for Lionfish. I have a small Lionfish that will not eat anything but live fish. Living in the Philippines has it's advantages. When the fishermen pull their nets in, there is a lot of Krill that comes up with the nets. So I never need to by food because of the...

    Do peppermint shrimp eat pods? I used to see alot more pods run around my 10gal reef, but since i went from 1 peppermint shrimp to 2 I don't really see them anymore, and only at night when the lights off do i see a couple.

    Sorry, not sure if this is in the right place. My mom bought a pet crab for me and my sister for 10 dollars at this fish market. The salesmen never told my mom anything about it. I was wondering if someone could help identify my crab, tell me it's diet and how to take care of it?

    So I just 'rescued' a 3-4" Foxface the other day. A co-worker lost interest in the hobby and it was his last survivor. The fish still seems to be adjusting to my tank, but I'm having a hard time determining if it is eating. My other fish eat an omnivore type pellet along with a blender mush...

    I'd like to get an idea of how much, and how often people are feeding veggies to their tangs. How many tangs do you have? How big are they? How much of the veggies do you feed at a time? How often do you feed veggies?

    I was wondering what you all think is the proper diet for a bicolor blenny? I know they are herbivores, just wanted some feedback on what you think is the best food.

    I have heard that soaking the fish food in garlic is good for the fish. Has anyone heard of just adding a bit to the tank itself?

    Been kinda vacant on the forums for a while, been busy with the move to the new house and all. Everyone did survive the move! The problem is.... My tank has been setup for almost 2 years now, July will be 2 years exactly. The 2 clownfish I first purchased where from the same tank at the LFS...
