    We have a fairly large tank at work (250g display, 50g sump) and the current caretaker is leaving for somewhere between a year and forever. I've helped a lot with the tank, especially livestock selection, aesthetics, etc, but I don't really do any of the "work" I guess. You know, just the fun...

    I've had my frogspawn frag for 2 weeks now and this is the first time I've seen it's mouth. Cleaned out the tank and had the lights off for a while. When I got everything back up and running, I saw this. He was kind of retracted and the center was showing. Do they have 2 mouths or is...

    Hello, I have a 45g tank and want to add corals and anemones, but I do not currently have sufficient lighting. I have researched that anemones prefer to have around 6 watts per gallon. Currently I have a coral life dual T-5 39 watt fixture. What is a good fixture that will fix my tank? I'm...

    Hey guys, Newbie here and starting a reef tank. I realize that it is not recommended to start with a reef tank before getting some experience with fish-only, or hybrid tank, but I have done a bit of reading and I have patience :) Also, even though it doesn't directly translate into my career...

    I happened to go into Petco and they had Biocube protein skimmers closeout priced @ 4.00 each so I bought the last two and swapped them @the LFS for this frag. The problem is that the clerks who know the stuff well were not there and I was left with the new guy. This hard frag was under the same...

  20. General Reef Discussion
    I am trying to put together a list of the top 20 or so favorite corals of home aquarists and why. What ones do you like? Do you like them because they are easy to take care of or because they need special attention? Color? Size? Speed of growth? What is it that makes the corals you like stand...
