Last time I had a hitchhiker on a live rock (quite a few, actually) I thought it was something good, but you guys pointed out that it was aiptasia. I bought a couple of peppermint shrimp and now there are no more aiptasia.
Today, I'll do it again. I bought a live rock from my nearby Petco...
I'm setting up my first tank right now(its a 55 gallon) i came across some free used equipment and i was wondering if it was ok to use it without contaminating a tank (some power heads, heater, air pump, and a complete quarantine setup) I also just got a red sea prizm deluxe which came with a...
:blob:Welp with a little convincing from a friend here goes nothing. Since I'm completely broke right now and not working at the moment i'm doing this thing on a budget. Here are specs: (nothing fancy)
This will be a 3 sided tank with a powerfilter on one end just for carbon and movement.
I've just read almost every archived thread posted here about ich, and I'm a little confused by some of the conflicting opinions out there. Could you all please check out my ich attack plan (below) and tell me if it sounds okay? I have a couple of other questions, too.

I am new to TRT. I have a 24g nano-cube by JBJ that we have had for a year now. I am taking over the tank since my wife has a new hobby (a new baby girl). I have been reading a lot of previous posts in this forum to learn more about my new hobby. I have been slowly taking over the tank from...
so it's time to get started...
<O:p</O:phaven't had a real reef tank ever. i tried once ten years ago, but everything crashed when i went on a three week trip. keeping a reef tank has been one of my greatest joys and also my biggest defeats when my old tank crashed. <O:p
i have a...
My biggest concern are the tangs. Yes? No? Maybe?
I see a lot of people do it. However, a 90 gallon is still just a 4 foot tank.
I would love to have a blue tang and Powder Blue Tang.

I am selling my complete reef tank as is water and all for $1800, I have spent about $3500 on this tank. Must be picked up and I will help disassemble tank. I am located in Edwardsville, Pa, which is in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Area. Bring a lot of buckets and containers, and also a truck or...
Hi, everybody. I'm excited about joining this community because my friends are already getting tired of hearing about my aquarium… and I've only had it for a few weeks!
So far things in my tank are going swimmingly (sorry!), with the exception of my Hawaiian feather duster...

I put the blue backdrop on the tank for the sole purpose of this picture only
I haven't finished the back canopy yet but here is the back view. There is 5 ft of...
So first the bad, just noticed this tonight (just when I thought all my hitchhikers were good), this is aiptasia isn't it? What should I do, the tank has only been running 3 days? :doh:
If it is its not all bad, I got a purple zoanthid, a bunch of feather duster worms (I have IDed a couple...

it WAS my seahorse tank, I added rock, and things happen. I just stripped it down on November 30th. The rocks are cooking, so by Feburary, the tank will be started, other than just being empty.
this pic is from a year ago, almost to date of the tank, but right now its- EMPTY...
I've spent many years wanting seahorses. I've never quite dared to get any for my tank, as it wasn't setup for them. I recently rebuilt my tank system, and included a 'fuge for them. I've had a reef system now for over 7 years, and now ready for Seahorses. My main tank is 35...
just picked up a hawaiian feather duster, and a green mandarin. i have an ecosystem in my sump so hopefully i can keep producing enough pods for the mandarin. if not i made a deal with the lfs to take him back if need be. the lion doesnt seem to care that hes in there. the feather dusters...
Unfortunately, work on the new house has kept me from doing much posting about my new setup. I have finally snapped some pics, so here's my new reef tank (I'm so darn proud of it).
Here's what I started with: A 46g bowfront with no sump and ~190w of PC above the tank. It had a Crushed Coral...
