my tank is an established one that has been recently moved. my pair of false mave been shaking and the little male has been nipping at the larger females no-no area lul. is this mating or is there something wrong?
I'm sorry, this question has probably been asked over and over but I haven't found what I need searching through past posts. The more I read, the more confused I get. So many choices and it seems like there isn't a general consensus on what works best. Before going out and spending money on...
Long time lurker, first time poster here.
I've had my tank running for about 6 months (converted to SW from FW after my 4 year old pumped a few squirts of hand soap into my tank :rolleyes:) and I've got some questions...but I guess I'll start with some basic info...
Ok, so I have decided to do a build post. I plan to keep softies in this tank, and the LR I got has some beautiful mushrooms and kenya trees. Here is what I have:
- 20g Long tank
- 25lb Caribsea Caribbean LS
- ~25lb Beautiful LR (from Jojon60)
- Orbit 65W Dual Actinic lighting
Hey, just ordered my new 220 for delivery on the 17th, and being new to the hobby (saltwater at least) wanted to make sure my fish selections wont find their tankmates an expensive live food....:freak:

Just want to get a feel for how much interest there is. My husband and I decided, reluctantly, to sell off our tank. We travel too much to adequately take care of it. It's a 90 gallon tank in a stand, under tank sump, RO/DI setup, turbofloater 1000 skimmer, approx 100 lbs of nice rock, lots of...

So I got 5 blue chromies (.5" - .75") each and a 2" copperband butterfly last friday. I had a mated pair of false percula clowns that had been doing great in the tank for over 8 months now. All my water parameters are excellent, yet this evening I discovered one of them is missing. It looks like...

I'm new to this forum, it looks like a good one.
I've posted this question on other forums but never get a response. What are people's opinions on using pre-packaged sea water (Catalina Water Company Real Ocean, in my case) versus using filtered tap water and instant ocean salt? We've been...

Should i be worried that my clowns have decided to host my hammer coral? i had a clown that loved his rose bta, but he disappeared one day. I bought a pair to replace him and they immediately took to my small hammer coral. The first day the hammer retracted and seemed very irritated. I tried...
I was given my father-in-laws tank January 2005. He had it set up as fish only and was just tired of messing with it. After tear down, 2 hour drive and setup (9 hours total) we still had a few fish left (they were in bad shape when we picked them up).

One of my friends, Steve, has a fish question, and we might as well get some answers from people who actually like and know something about fish...so here's the highlights of his PM, and I'll let him know I posted this.
