    While I actually thing it is kind of interesting to look at I am considering trying to control the Bubble Algae in my SPS tank. Word of mouth says that Rabbit Fish & Emerald Crab (Mithrax sculptus) are ways to combat Bubble Algae. Are there other methods that actually work. I have found more...

    I got a frag today, and it contained a little bit of bubble aglae. And I was fine with that, and I went at it to take it off like I was told to. But as I was doing this, 1 or 2 popped. And I was told that when it pops, it releases spore out to more bubble algae. Is there anything I can get that...

    Hey, guys. I'd like to get some opinions on my emerald mithrax crabs. I bought two at my LFS when I first started cycling my tank. I really like them a lot, but I've heard of these types of crabs becoming aggressive to other tank inhabitants. Last night after work, I had the actinic on and was...

    Hello to all. I'd just like to thank you for some of the general knowledge I've gained while lurking around this site. I'm new to the saltwater hobby. My 75 gal long tank has only been set up for about two months. My question relates to my green bulb tip anemone. I woke up this morning to...

    Hey all, I am just starting a 75gal reef tank. Never had a SW tank before, but have had a FW tank for several years. I have been doing a lot of research and will hopefully be able to start putting this to work soon. I plan on doing nearly everything as a DIY project, and I will be needing lots...

    Well I only have hermit crabs now for janitors, I have been noticed more cyano/algae buildup and feel i need to get some more janitors. I would like some sand sifters but nothing that will eat fauna and nothing that when dies will kill tank off. If anyone has any suggestions on how they keep...
