    Sadly, I am thinking of selling my 90 gallon reef tank that I have had for about 2 years. I have been in the hobby now for about...oh 5 or 6 years and just do not seem to enjoy my tank anymore. With how busy my lifestyle is, and recently purchasing my first house I just do not have the time or...

    HELLO! And thank you for reading at this post; I am in desperate need of help and advice about my tank. To begin with I must tell you I don't know much about this, I thought it was going to be like my fresh water tank with a little more of difficulty, so I got myself a 150 galon tank (I think...

    I stopped in at Age of Aquariums in Goshen on Saturday. At one time that was a decent shop. Most of their salt tanks were empty. One whole section of tanks are for sale. Forget about any corals. Looks like they are getting out of the saltwater business. They told me that people just don't buy...

    Just curious how long some of you have been researching reef tanks online. I started after getting very bad info from a certain LFS over 10 years ago. I couldn't understand why I was having so many problems with my tank. I was told by the LFS that I could keep a clam under regular flourescent...

    A while back several participants discussed the short lifespan of electric flame scallops in captivity. After having one of my own dye after a couple of months we left the shell in the tank as our peppermint shrimp liked it for cover. One and a half months later we have a new baby flame...

    I put a peppermint shrimp in my tank to take care of aiptasia, which he did quickly. Now I noticed my electric flame scallop has been eaten out of it's shell. Do peppermint shrimp eat scallops?

    I bought a fire scallop and when he first went in tank he started spazzing around and ended up in a corner halfway under a rock... Should I worry ? (or leave him) Are they able to navigate or just move and end up wherever (he might be stuck) I would have moved him but he is in such an awful...

    I'm fairly new to aquariums; my husband and I just started our reef aquarium 6 months ago. We have a good local shop to guide us or we wouldn't have even attempted the hobby. However, yesterday we acquired a spiny black urchin. I believe it's scientific name is known as diadema, and we didn't...

    I bought a couple of things about 2 weeks ago: 1) a $7 flame scallop (that scares the hell out of me because anytime I go to handle it - it SNAPS at my fingers! I know there are no teeth but it still makes me jump and startles the hell of of me) 2) a $12 small pink tip anemone Well.... I...
