    hey, we just got our fish this week and are feeding with our first batch of frozen brine shrimp, do we thaw at the piece we cut out or just throw it in there whole?

    I recently purchased an 8gal biocube to keep a small seahorse in. Right now I just have the tank and haven't purchased rocks or sand yet, so I still have the option of returning it and getting the 14 gal. tank. My plan for this tank was to keep 1 small seahorse (2-3 inch max size) and 1...

    A short introduction of myself; my name is Chad Vossen; I’m 20 years old and live in MN. I have successfully raised 3 peppermint shrimp, with more to settle soon. I could have had more success, but I had two massive die offs that were human error. My larval shrimp tank is very basic; it’s a...

    I just added candy cane, frogspawn and tube coral to my tank.... Does anyone have experience with the tube coral? All I have read says moderate current and low light - I am planning to feed cyclops - do I need to spoon feed it? My livestock currently includes 17 corals and 3 fish. I have the...

    I had it bagged and ready to take home today and then I asked (by chance) if it was possible that my hermits could get it....and she said YES. SO I left it for another lucky reefer.

    I’m having a problem ensuring that my watchman goby gets enough to eat. He’s shy and doesn’t like to come out of the rocks, so my six-line wrasse and cleaner shrimp beat him to the food before it has a chance to get to the bottom of the tank, where he’ll go after it. He’s started picking off...

    I'll take any advice as I am a new reefer. I bought 3 frags for $25 to see what happens. 1 is a zoo, 1 is made up of a single red mushroom very small the other is some branchy looking orange thing small/medium sized. Essentially I added some calcium for the first time yesterday(advantage clacium...

    I got some new fish from Tonga day before yesterday. I got 1 male & 4 Female Pseudoanthias squammipinnis (Scalefin Anthias, Orange Anthias[Females], Red Anthias[Male] are some of the more common names), 2 Pink Skunk Clowns, and 2 Six Line Wrasses. The Anthias have been pretty shy the first...

    We finally got rid of that godawful 42 hex tank (anyone want it? ;) ) and replaced it with a 65 gallon tank. We've got a bit of chaeto in one corner and some small bits of other plants from the tank move. The green hairy mushroom is splitting again, we have a few various snails and hermit...

    All right all you T5 users out there, I need some help. Or maybe just a little clarity in the muddy new world of T5's. Some folks say that T5HO's will only support SPS in the top third of a tank. Others say that T5HO's are so powerful that they may bleach corals near the top of the tank. So...
  15. "Soft" corals
    I am relatively new to tank care... Have not seen much about how to feed a coral... I took a pix of me feeding my corals... Is this how you are supposed to do it? I hope no-one is cringing! If I'm doing this wrong, please tell me how to feed them! Any chance anyone could tell me what type...

    In my developing 90g reef, I now have a rose anemone, percula clown, lawnmower blennie, 3 cleaner shrimp, bubble coral, 2 zoa frags, a ricordia shroom, and a green star polyp frag. I've been feeding the clown some frozen mysis shrimp daily. I notice the shrimp will grab a few of them as well...

    I picked up formula one pellet food from Danco's and have been using the product for a few days now and I am very happy. Since I have zero time the dried food is easier for me to use and my fish get to eat every day. The Pink square anthias loves the stuff and it comes in carnivore and herbivore...
