    I have a Dog Face puffer that will not eat anything but shrimp and krill, I have tried other types of food but it wont eat them. Is this okay, will the health of the animal be damaged by eating this all the time? I have tried silver sides, squid, scallops, fish from the store, flake food, and...

    I've wanted a yellow tang since I was a kid, but I want to do it right. My 110 has been up and running now for about two months give or take. Right now there is a spotted hawkfish in it. He's been in there for two weeks and is doing fine. CC substrate, only about 20lbs of LR so far, lots of...

    I got a question about a small Goby of mine. He is listed as an omnivore. He spends most all day swimming around nibbling at the LR and sand and eating stuff. However, I cannot get him to eat any meaty foods it seems. I feed Mysis to my firefish and shrimp and they love it, but the court...

    My yellow tang I bought 6 days ago has yet to eat. He looks healthy, except for the stomach area which is looking a little shrunken in. It looked good when I got him. I've tried Formula 2, dried seaweed, fresh spinach and romaine, and brine shrimp. He doesn't even pick at the rocks. I'm...

    Hi All, I bought a yellow tang 4 days ago and am having trouble getting him to eat. It doesn't pick at the rocks, and won't touch Formula 2 or dried seaweed. Thought I'd try some nori. Where can I get some??? Northern suburbs would be best. Thanks Tim

    Not stocking my tank with fish yet but wondering if 1 inch of fish per 2 gallons fair? I read that in the Palletta book. That would be 45 adult fish inches in a 90 gallon tank. Let me know. I tried to look at other forums but did not know which one to look at. Thanks.

    I have had a beautiful blue tang in my tank for well over a year and a nice, fast growing pumping xenia for about 6 months. The tang has completely left the pumping xenia alone until about a week ago. Now, it nips at it frequently nibbling it away almost down to the main stalks. My blue tang...

    FS: 6'' foxface and a 6-7'' naso tang in a 100g. I'd be willing to part with if anyone really wants them($ or trade). They have been fed dried seaweed sheets along with mysis shrimp. Both are fine in a reef or fish only environment, as they haven't nipped any of my coral. I would like to clear...
