    Someone at a store told me a Elegance coral would eat krill like a anemone. I thought elegance coral was a filter feeder and was eating the Oyster feast that all the other corals where getting. Is this right? Or would it eat a krill?

    I have had a brain coral that came with my live rock. It seems to be alive but not growing very much. Should I be feeding it mysis shrimp any? I have a Fluval LED Marine & Reef Full Spectrum light. It seems to be keeping the coral alive just not growing much

    Hi! So I am having a bit of trouble feeding my oyster. Every time I get near the tank, he closes up. Right now, all I can do is try to sneak up on him and dump food directly in the tank. Any ideas on how I can target feed this guy without scaring him? Thanks! :)

    I recently purchased a dwarf golden moray eel. I try to feed him every day, but he usually eats every other day. He will only eat frozen silverslides. I've read that this isn't nutritious enough. What else should I be feeding him? I've tried fresh squid from the grocery store, but he hides in...

    Hope everyone had a good christmas! I got a new t5HO fixture :) My mom's severely neglected tank houses some star polyps and assorted polyps, they looked very unhappy in there (the bulbs haven't been replaced in years) so I figured putting em in mine wouldn't hurt...They've opened up very nicely...

    I recently purchased a few hermit crabs for my tank yesterday. The tank has been running for about 3 weeks. Will the algae in the tank be sufficient enough to supply the crab's diet? The worker of the store told me to buy some flakes as well. However I have heard they are bad for salt tanks. If...
