    Hi! I'm new to the forum and new to saltwater tanks! I just set up my first tank about a month ago with my boyfriend. We got a used tank of craigslist that had been established for over 10 years. We decided we wanted to do a reef tank as we find them beautiful. Alright, so the thank came with...

    Question for you gurus of the rabbitfish. How many do you need to have before they stop fighting and start getting along? I've seen tanks with multiple ones just wondering how many I would need or if it would even be plausible. Just trying to find a companion for my Fox who won't bully him...

    I just got a Foxface Rabbitfish, acclimated him to the water, and put him in the tank. I'm worried because he was attempting to swim, but one side wasn't moving and he essentially sank to the bottom. His fins and gills are still moving, but he isn't actually swimming around. Is he just in shock...

    Hello everyone. My name is Linda ( I feel like I'm at an AA meeting or something LOL) New to TRT, but I've had a 55gal FOWLR for about 7 years. I turned into a reef about a year ago. I acquired a 135 back in March and have since moved my 55 into it. I make liverock and I keep it in the 55. My...

    My 240 fowlr has been up since January and my one spot foxface rabbitfish was my first fish. He was bright yellow in the beginning and happily grazed on algae throughout the rockwork. Later I added a royal gramma basslet. The basslet postures somewhat towards the foxface but nothing serious...

    Well, after much debating with myself, I decided to add a CopperBanded Butterfly to my 180 gallon reef. I have gone back and forth about trying to keep one as I know their survival rate in captivity is less than encouraging. I had mainly been thinking about keeping one due to the abundance of...

    So my 20gal has been upgraded to a 40gal. It's been running for over a month now so I thought I'd post some pics. p.s. Check out the purple 8lb piece of rock on the center/right side. I scored it yesterday. It's hard to tell but there are are Xenias, Mushrooms and Zoas all over it.

    So, what's the deal with the foxface rabbitfish being venemous? Does that mean if you have one you can't put your hands in the tank? Can you die from one? I love these fish, they are so beautiful and cute. I was hoping to get one when we upgrade to a 90 gallon in a few years.

    I'm new to the hobby and just purchased a 75 gallon from a girl who was moving. It was full of green algae when I got it, however I rinsed the rocks and cleaned it up pretty good. It has been set up at the new location for about 4 days and that algae is starting to come back strong. My water...

    I have tons of bubble algae in my tank. Is there a critter or a way to get rid of it? Also I have mushrooms about to take over my tank. They are killing my candies. Is there a way to lessen these as well? I don't want to completely get rid of the mushrooms, just get them under control... Any...

    I am on my second Foxface Rabbitfish from Absolutely Fish, a supposedly MAC certified LFS, that was fine for about a month and a half and then went downhill overnight and died. I have 3 other fishy inhabitants that are perfectly fine that have been in the tank since it started. From what I...

    My foxface rabbitfish LOVES nori - I mean, really, really loves it. I put multiple clips of nori in the tank every day and they rarely last an hour. A while ago, I started feeding him the left over "wad" of nori from the end of the clip - and he really likes that too. Now he's gotten smart...

    Well my Foxface Rabbitfish that was really sick over the weekend didn't make it. This was my first saltwater fish and the first one to die. I had only had him for about 6 months and I'm really frustrated as to how this happened. The water tested very well. Amm/trite/trate all tested 0, PH...

    Ok anyone have any suggestions for Red Bubble algae control? I have been snipping and cliping it off for weeks trying not to bust any bubbles. I had an Emerald crab who didn't touch it... BTW here is he best pic I have. Its like green bubbles, but seems to root into the rocks.

    I can't figure out why my fish is dying. When I came home today, my powder blue tang was laying on the sand - now he's in quarantine - he is listing sideways, and seems to be totally out of it. He has only been in the tank for three days. Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate are all ZERO. dKH is...
