It's been two days now and I have had one-day-old baby brine shrimp available for them 24 hours a day. My...

    This morning we found a very strange little creature - a spaghetti worm! And it was eating a piece of clam. I got a video of it. It was so cool to watch! I love the little surprises that pop up in saltwater tanks. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAjZMUlhNf8

    I added this yellow tang coming up on a week and he doesnt eat much and twitches about and sometimes will dart slightly downward and graze the sand and flip the sand into the air. He hides any time I walk into the room and feed. I try to target feed him but he doesnt take any of the food. He...

    Hello, have a 6 week old tank and just recently added a bicolor chromis about 2 days ago and he won't really eat the pellet food I bought. I was wondering if he just needs a few days to become comfortable in his new home or if he doesn't like the food. I see him swimming around and eating small...

The other fish in my tank are eating as usual and have been really enjoying the increase in feeding that i have been doing...

    I have a Finger Leather Coral I have had for like four or five months. It has been thriving in my tank since I got it. No issue until now and it has even been growing by leaps and bounds. At the base of each finger (on the inside - where the fingers meet the base of the coral) there appears to...

    I have a foxface who had been eating fine for several months. He started to eat less and he looks really bad now. I'm noticing that he's got something stuck in his mouth, it looks like a piece of brine stuck in his teeth or something. Any ideas on how I can get him eating again? He's really not...

    Hi all, So my two new clown fish are doing great, they explore their new tank constantly all day but my problem lies in their eating. I have been trying frozen mysis, frozen brine, and i have also tried some sinking pellets (my peppermint shrimp love them) and also have tried placing seaweed...

    Hi, for some reason my clownfish has just stopped eating. I have had him for about a month and a little less than a week ago he stopped eating completely. Also, he seems to be breathing heavy as his mouth has been rapidly opening and closing. Other than that however, he swims around as usual. He...

I have pods everywhere in my tank and I see the new mandarin nipping at the rocks but he is still getting skinnier every day. Any idea why, or...

    I just got a new erectus seahorse, and its pecking frozen food off the ground. Problem is, that was the leftover frozen food I tried to feed him last night ( I cant clean up everything!). Will this cause any problems? He is doing well.
