    So i'm trying to maintain my Salinity Levels and i noticed when i test the tank at different depths of the tank i get different readings. at the top of the tank its off the charts. Middle of the tank is at 1.024 and at the bottom its 1.020. i took these readings a day after adding fresh water...

    My Feather Duster is looking stressed out - won't open fully, shoots back in after a short while out, tube is looking shabby. It was fine until I placed an Acan near it. The other day I noticed a filament going from the acan to the worm (which at that point was nowhere to be seen). I...

    I know there have been threads about these little white spots in tanks. Some were saying snail eggs. That's what I thought until I started seeing the little stars that I think are bad and I can't remember what they are called. I see a lot of them over the last few days. Please take a look. I am...

    Hi guys (and girls), I need some advice on my new orange tube anemone. I brought him home last night and buried his foot in the sand. Today it's back out of the sand and laying on it's side. Tentacles are inflated some, but mostly laying on the sand, not up and flowing. I find conflicting...

    i just turned the lights off in the living room and had to look at the new open brain i got one last time tonight and i noticed something. i cant tell if its coming from the flesh or the base rock under it but there is a little feather duster on my brain. is this a bad thing or no?

    My LFS has set up a marine tank and recently added several feather duster worms (Hawaiian, I think). They promptly vacated their tubes and have tunneled at the base of the live rock. Their fans are extended and they seem to be otherwise ok. What could have caused this?

    Hi all, I've been in the hobby now for about a year... I have had 2 14g BioCubes and I kept a 1.5g Picotope tank for a little while also. As you might imagine I am fast out-growing my current 14g BioCube so I am now ready to upgrade to something a bit bigger. I have chosen the 40g Breeder...

    I'm looking for a good site to help ID Hitchhikers. Now that the lights are on and the rock seems to be coming to life more and more every day. The other day it was just a snail, then a tiny feather-duster worm. Now I see two more Feather-duster worms and a whole lot of other little things...

    Hi everyone, I recently switched over my 33 gal fresh tank to salt. I got a little carried away when buying $400 worth of live rock (and still want more). Here is what I have done, and what I wish to do. Maybe a few (or more) of you can give advice. Tank started April 25/07 Added (all by...

    So first the bad, just noticed this tonight (just when I thought all my hitchhikers were good), this is aiptasia isn't it? What should I do, the tank has only been running 3 days? :doh: If it is its not all bad, I got a purple zoanthid, a bunch of feather duster worms (I have IDed a couple...

    hey, all. this is my first post here. as you can see I like clown gobies:thumbup: anyway, all my life, i have wanted a SW tank, and I finally have an opportunity to make one. the unfortunate part is, I have VERY limited space and budget, so if I want one it can only be 6Gs. now I have been...

    ok I know these fish are 50/50 for being reef safe, but what will the fish try to eat if it decides to be a naughty fishy? Don't have one in my tank yet but a LFS has them for a VERY good price and I am getting very tempted.

    I have recently added a feather duster worm to my tank. I have placed it in four different spots and each morning afterwords it is in a new location. I went to move it again today and it looks like it has created a hole in the side of its casing (or whatever it's called) and has begun creating...

    I wasn't sure if it was good or not cause It doesn't look like any of the algae that I had when the tank was going through its cycle, its the same color as the coraline that is growing but it looks like more of a slime/coat that is growing in one corner of my tank, I sucked it out once but it...
