    I have started putting hatched brine shrimp in my tank using turky buster. Small white tiny brine shrimp moving all over the tank. My fishes are eating all those very happily.

    So the LFS talked me into buying some frozen rotifers (5 bucks, worth a try right?) I was wondering if anyone else uses these for their filter feeders. Also how much for my 75 gal, livestock list below. I was planning on using the rotifers and phytoplankton on different days, swithcing back...

    I got something unusual in my tank that I haven't been able to figure out. It hangs upside down under some LR, light does not touch it. All you can see of it are white luminescent tips on the end of its tentacles. Otherwise the creature is clear. I really only notice it when I first turn the...

    Hi, My name is Asia and I have a 35 gallon salt tank. I went to my local pet store and bought a few inverts to put in my tank and saw a pregnant Peppermint shrimp. I am unaware of how long she has been with eggs, but am scared that she will lay them and I won't be able to raise the babies. I...

    I am brand new to anything reef, or even saltwater for that matter. I am curious as to how I should be interpreting the behaviour of a few corals that I have bought. Also, I just realized that the guy in the lfs didn't tell me what these were. I had asked for something hard to kill so he took...

    Well this might be a huge question... Does anyone have a really deep water tank with corals that are regarded as low light As in corals that are non-photosynthetic? I kind of want to do something different and think that this could be really neat. Well I read that a lot of sea fans are in...
