    I've been toying with this idea in my mind for awhile. I'd like to add a few feather dusters to one corner of our tank. Actually, I'd like to add enough to make a sort of "flower bed", if you will. Specifically, notaulax and Sabellastarte. It would be nice to have a cluster duster or Christmas...

    Hi, I set up a nano-tank on approximately July 21 of this year. It's been going well and my LR came with a ton of mini feather dusters. A couple of weeks into things I saw a little bit of green algae and thought, "Hey, I'll add a snail to keep that under control." Everything I read said...

There's a skeleton of an lps of some sort(the family with hammers and frogspawns, echinosumthinorother something like that?)

    I plan on doing a all enclosed 10gal with stand. 7gal viewing with approx. 1-2gal sump. MH lighting, Zoes and possibly a small anenome and clown. Livestock is still in the air, sorry. This is going to be all new to me. Never messed with silicone and plexi. Wish me luck.

    Do emerald crabs breed in tanks? I can't be sure, since I have now lost track of how many I started off with in the tank and have lost at least 2, but today I found a small, paler version of all the other emeralds.... do they reproduce if the conditions are right? For that matter, another...

    The hardwood bamboo floors in my living room were installed incorrectly, so this will be the second time I will have to dismantle my tank and move it just to re-move it back when the floors are corrected. As some of you know I will be moving to Houston early next year. I am seeing if there is an...

    Hi people. sorry if my questions seem so naive, but someone gave me his "live rocks" which he imported from fiji, and gave me hastey instructions on how to set up my tank, and left me on my own. I always dreamed of owning a marine aquarium, but i never dreamed that it will be this complicated...

    I have a few feather duster hitch hikers on my LR, along with some aiptasia, a horseshoe crab, and a couple of pepper mint shrimp. Should I be feeding these guys anything or will they get along with just detritus?
