    I have had a biocube 29 up and running for about 2 months now. I had a pair of ocellaris clownfish in there for a month. I recently ordered a RW4 Powerhead and added it to the tank to help with the circulation for my corals. The very next day one of my clownfish had died. My guess would be is...

    I have had a 30 gallon tank since April 2015 and have just gone through a major bout of ICH. Many of my fish died, even after dosing the tank with Hypercure and Ich Attack. These treatments didn't seem to work because I still lost fish. I now have 3 Four stripe damsels, and one clown, and I am...

    My first fish after my tank cycled was a blue fiji damsel. Not my first choice, but my LFS convinced me, $6. He was so healthy, didn't get ich like all my other fish. He ran the tank, especially since I only have four fish right now in 75 gallons. I've had him for 3 months happy and healthy...

    I did a stupid thing, one of those times you know it is a bad idea and do it anyway. I "rescued" an anemone from an lfs that had it under 24w lighting. It was bleached, partially closed, but the mouth was closed tightly, it was still sticky and eating. It of course died today, I immediately...
