    So I got this fish 5 days ago. I fed the tank the day after and the leaf fish ate one live and one dead gut loaded (with cyclopleeze) ghost shrimp. I have tried to feed him ghost shrimp every night now but he doesn't even know they are there. Sometimes they will just sit on him and he doesn't...

    Well, getting some Predators, I'm thinking of getting some Ghost Shrimp and raising some and breeding them. I was wondering what all I would need to get this going? I've got my 10G tank ready and thinking of putting a divider in it so if they lay their eggs I can separate from the adults to...

    TWO QUESTIONS: #1: if i were to float a bag of a dozen ghost shrimp until acclimated and plopped them in my saltwater tank.....how long will they live if left uneaten by predators? i've gotten answers from various LFS owners ranging from 30mins to 2 weeks. I need the TRUE answer. #2: i'm...

    Hello, everyone! I'm new here and didn't see a newcomer's thread so I'll use this to introduce myself and my tank. I'm Barb, and my tank had LR put in on April 21, 2008. It's already loaded with corals. I've found I have no patience whatsoever, but I'm working on that! I live in Ohio, have four...

    what's the deal with raising ghost shrimp? I have some and I'm curious to know what to expect as they grow. Will they shed or will they just get bigger?:fish:

    First off, i want to try and frag my polyp colonies. I've been reading on how to do it, but want to double check before i possibly mess up. All I do is cut the top of one of the polyps off, cut the piece into 3 or 4 others, and super glue to whatever i wish to grow the new colony on? Second...

    <--Nick We have a green hair algae problem in our seahorse tank. Last weekend, we went on all the boards looking for a solution that is safe for our horses... We found "Halloween Hermits" (AKA Ciliopagurus strigatus) to have an appitite for the algea we had, and they were small enough to...

    So if you saw my build thread you know I upgraded to a 90g perfecto rr. I used the 20lbs of sand from my old tank and the 35lbs of LR from my old tank. I add two large peices of base rock aswell. I have not added anything that would cause a cycle. The coral and three small fish from my old tank...

    hey everyone. I was wondering what kind of food everyone feeds their Lion fish.
  15. General Reef Discussion
    I just set up my first salt water tank about 2 1/2 weeks ago. The tank is starting that cycle with all the rusty color alge. My tank is starting to smell up my living room. Is that a phase, will it go away. I have about 9 fish in there now. all live rock and sand.

    Okay, so our female seahorse passed away and it's been two weeks now since we lost her :( (It wasn't due to water quality or anything of that nature; her head got stuck in the slits for the overflow and she wasn't able to get out. That problem has been corrected.) I was wondering if any of...

    My lion fish is just flopping around:confused: sometimes he'll just sit on the sand and just mope around Other times he'll let the powerheads tumble him around and he doesn't even try to swim that much at all! He'll even flote up-side down! However the other fish are perfectly happy. I think...

    Well i just got a yellow head moray eel. He's a little over a foot long and a little over an inch round. He is in his own tank (35 gallon long) decent lighting with moon light, filter, and protein skimmer. Couple of rocks to hide in and glass tops so hopefully he won't get out. Should i be...
