    We have a Snowflake Eel and just purchased a bubble tip. Our question is will the eel eat the anemone or vice versa? We know that the bubble tip wanders and we can't find him...mind you...we haven't torn the take apart to find him yet...because we don't want to rock the world of the other's in...

    Currently I have a 40B and going to upgrade to a 75 at the end of the month. I was wondering what type of reef fish out there that would eat nori? I know tangs do and foxfaces but what other type of fishes will do that?

    So I picked up a black and orange ocellaris clown on Thursday. LFS said they were feeding them New Life Spectrum 1mm pellets (exactly what I have). When I put the pellets in the tank, they both go for them, drag them down midway and "mouth" them until they simply fall to the bottom uneaten...

    So, I have 2 Choco-Stars and I am currently feeding them a chunk of scallop once a day. I feel like the same diet is getting old and was looking for other things I can feed them. Also, should I be feeding them more than once a day? I read somewhere that I needed to be careful not to overfeed...

    Does anybody know if Kenya trees would be toxic if my green spotted putters ate them? I was thinking of putting some in there tank:cool:. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a pair of Hawaiian flame wrasses and for some reason the male has become scarily thin! :eek: the female is perfectly fat and happy. He has always been a little more of a timid eater, but it never really seemed to be a problem. I can see his stomach is puffed out after a big meal, but the...

    Would a painted angler and a dwarf zebra lionfish be compatible in a 125 gallon tank?

    I've had a pair of occelaris clowns in my 29 since February and everything's been fine. The smaller clown started acting funny about a month ago and that's when I noticed it had ich. I promptly gave it and another damsel a freshwater dip. Both cleared up from ich but since then the clown doesn't...

    I want to get a plant/macro algae to help with nitrates, but I have a decorated tuxedo urchin that eats everything, including my chaeto that I used to have. Is there anything that it WON'T eat?? Thanks!!

    I've had a yellow eye kole tang in my 90g for about 2 1/2 weeks and he wouldn't eat anything at all. But, today I kinda crouched on the side of the tank (cuz he hides everytime he sees me) so I waited for him to come back out and graze, I tossed some spectrum pellets over the side and he went...

  17. Reef Fish
    The title says it all. I watched him eat at the store but when we got home, he doesn't look like he has touched anything. It has been about 36 hours since I got him home and acclimated. From time to time he looks like he is stressed in the way that he is swimming but for the most part nothing...

    Wil the grouper survive? I was surprised to come home to see my shrimps feelers sticking out of the groupers mouth and it's stomach bulging. I was not expecting that to happen!!!

    Hey fellow reef keepers! I was wondering how many of you had success with peppermint shrimp eating aptasia and keeping the numbers down. If not, what have you found to be the most successful way to get rid of aptasia. But I'm hoping to find peppermint shrimp is a good way, I like them.
