    I just got back from my lfs where I abandoned my beloved pair of maroon clowns. :bawling: They were both biting the ends off my frogspawn and torch. . . Anyway, we decided before we left the house that we would get a pair of false percs since they are less aggressive. I was so emotionally...

    Hi. We are relatively new to saltwater, our tank is about 1 year set up. The water tested good so I added a baby false perc and a baby sailfin tang to our 55 gal tank which already had 1 false perc and 1 blue damsel. There is no question that the perc ruled the tank, she bullied and chased the...

    I have been toying with the idea of getting rid of a few fish. I still have everything in the 29 gal for now and still waiting to get a new display tank. I have decided to get a bigger tank but still want to thin out a few fish. I have a Scopas Tang who is about 2 years old about 3-4 inches, a...

    Hi all, I have been waighting for the right time to add fish to my newly setup 20 gal tank. Everything is good with the tank but i'm worried about my new fish.

    I'm doing an experiment and thought I would see what y'all thought. We know that clown fish cross breed in the wild. It is a rare event, so we have no way of knowing the extent to which this occurs. We don't know what species combinations are capable of producing offspring. There are a...

    Hi ho - My peppermint shrimp have been slowly, but surely disappearing. First, the 2 largest dissapeared (pregnant and all), later a small one went too close to a coral and was stung senseless and died, but the other 4 have, one by one, disappeared. I have a red sea max - totally enclosed...
