    How do you introduce new fish to an already established tank? Everything I try to add to my tank just doesn't stand a chance? It gets picked on by almost everything. Especially 2 large domino damsels. I know with freshwater if I move the gravel around and the ornaments it breaks up the...

    Good Morning all, I am looking to add a couple of new fish to my 75 gal reef tank. Several months ago I lost almost all my livestock to a case of Velvet that was brought in with my new Kole Tang. Like I said it has been several months since I added the test fish (domino damsel). And all is...

    This is probably the freakiest thing to me. It was about an inch long, and swam around. It was extremely fast, and it took about 40 pictures in order to get just these two below.
