    Can anyone help me out? There is some kind of white ball looking thing on my Hippo Tangs fin We tried to net him but forget it, no way I know the pics are not too clear, but it's the best I got at about 30 tries. If anyone can identify, how do I remove it? TIA!

    I came home last night to find my Blue tang stuck in a rock head first. Apparently she stuck her head in the hole, decided she couldn't get out so went in deeper into the rock. I was not too sure how to get her out. I very softly pulled on her tail, but she didn't move. She was stuck. I...

    Hi Everyone, as most of you know my Hippo Patrick hasn't been happy since we moved 2 months ago. Well this am he finally passed away. I'm not sure if it was old age that killed him or the move.

    What type of fish would go good with the Snowflake Eel? I'm planning on putting a Eel in my tank and I want to know what type of fish would be ok for the Eel. Is it all just size that matters? Anything over 3 inches or is it the type of fish. What do you all have to say about this? -Deuter:read:

    WIth a nod to the favorite blenny thread. WHat is your favorite fish? For me it would probably be a Jawfish. Either the Bluespot or Pearly.
