    So I got my RBTA about 2 days ago and it was doing fine for the past 2 days, it only moved an inch since I got it and would stay inflated and what not. However, today after I turned off the lights it started to move again, more than it did when I first got it and it seems as though it's about to...

I knew they hid when put into a new tank but this long? When do I chalk it up as a loss and try a different one? my water is perfect I do...

    Hey everyone! I'm a bit new here. I've been keeping my nano reef in an 8 gal for the past 3 months. Despite a few hiccups in the beginning I haven't had many issues (knock on wood). However, something peculiar has happened that I'm not really sure how to explain, I'm hoping someone else has...

    Hello everyone, I recently added a yellow tail tamarin wrasse to my DT. Its a 90 gallon with a 2 inch sand bed. I know how touchy these types of wrasse's can be and I did my research before getting him from the LFS. After I floated him for 30 and then dripped him for an hour I added him to...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the hobby and to this forum. I set up my 60 gal DT with 10 gal sump at the start of November with about 40 lbs of LR. It had been by buddy's tank before he upgraded, and he left about 1.5" of sand in the bottom with some water so I could get a jump on the bacteria. I...

    Hey guys I currently have 2 ecotech vortechs in my system, but I am fed up with the "whine" noise they produce (yes, they are setup correctly). I think anyone who has these pumps set to medium or high power in a silent room, and doesnt complain about their whiny noise, has hearing issues...

    So I got a McCosker Flasher Wrasse on Friday. All day Saturday and most of the day Sunday it was swimming around the tank and darting in and out of the rock. It was eating fine. Then Sunday afternoon he started laying down in the sand and getting pale. Then he would get up and start swimming...

    Hi. I had two green spotted puffers. They were great, they were very friendly, very active and always seemed excited when I came in the room. I could feed them out of my hand and even pet one of them. They almost had the personality of a dog. about 2 months ago one somehow got stuck in the...

    So my yellow banded possum wrasse came in yesterday and when I first added him to the tank he was fine. I did a slow aclimation with adding some water to his bag. Being shipped straight from the resale to my sotre then handed to me this is my first experience of an what could be considered an...

    So a couple of days ago I introduced into my tank a haddons carpet anemone. While that one has been doing good eating and attached to the sandbed with one foot submerged my BTA relocated itself at the bottom of the tank last night I had a hard time finding it as it was behind a rock, this...

    We got a Melanurus wrasse about 4 days ago and he's been hiding in the sand just about all the time since then. Seen him out and about when lights are out in the AM. I'm guessing he's in the sand the rest of the time b/c there was one time under our actinic T5 light PM that I saw him out- he...

    Hi guys, I'm new to the marine world but have been keeping fresh water for years. I recently started my first salt water tank (60 gal) and have just added the first inhabitants. I bought the tank second hand and took all of the seasoned live rock, sand, half the water (the other half was ocean...

    My yellow tang is showing mating-type behavior behind the reef. Should I be worried? For about 2 says now, she comes out for food, but then goes back behind the rock and kind of swims quickly forward and back, waving her anal fin side to side, low to the sand. I don't see her trying to itch...
