    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...
  3. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Hello all, 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...

    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...

    I am in need of some professional help...oh, and my tank is too! ;) Does a good skimmer make that much of a difference? I currently have a SeaClone (stop laughing) and I think it's been working pretty good to this point (I said stop laughing). It pulls out a cup full of nasty, dark brown crap...

    Okay guys here's the list. I'd preferably like to get rid of the livestock before the dry goods. In fact, I won't sell any dry goods until the livestock is gone. I should add that EVERYTHING is no more than 2 months old, and most of the dry goods are no more than 1 month old. Livestock: Fish...

    I've noticed that one of my hawaiian feather dusters has not come out of his tube in awhile, but after checking out the other duster it seems there are two dusters coming from the ones tube. Could this be, or am I seeing things? Lips

  9. Tridacnid Clams/ snails/worms/stars and such
    I have quite an abundance of these...smaller ones, building tubes than can get a couple inches long. I don't care for them, at least not in these numbers. Is there any fish, besides a pseudochromis, that will take care of these?

    A month ago, I found one tiny little bad bad aiptasia on one of the rock. After removing it, I figure that I mind as well get some Peppermint in the tank just incase it let out a bunch of little one before I got to it. Found someone on e-bay selling six of them so I bid on it even all I need is...

    My Sabellastarte feather duster lost its crown about 10 days ago but is now sporting a "New Do"! This one has been in the tank over 3 years and lost its feathers only once before. I felt sure it would come back but was relieved to see the branchia back out! Dick:)
