    Hello, I have a Sailfin Tang who has come down with a nasty case of the Ich. He's currently in a 20g hospital tank, however I am afraid that he has also infected the display tank. I bought some Kordon Ich Attach and would like to use some of it in the DT to be sure nothing else gets infected...

    I am new to the salt water aquarium hobby and am loving it. I came home this morning and noticed that my sally lightfoot crab had molted. The exoskeleton shell is still in the tank attached to some of the rock.... should it be removed or left alone? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

    Over the past year, my tank has lost almost all of the snails it had started with, and I was wondering if this was usual with marine tanks. About how long is the lifespan of your typical snail (turbo, astrea, etc.)? Do they have to be replaced yearly or is this just something happening to me...

    Hi, everyone! Hope your week is going well! We are upgrading from a 75g (listed in 'Tank Specs') to a 180g. This tank is being given away and is coming with some already established residents. I really wanted some opinions on whether this tank will be mis-stocked/overstocked. All the fish...

    I am looking into getting an inverts only tank. We currently have a 90 gallon reef, 20 freshwater, 2.5 (x2) freshwater, and 5 freshwater. I am thinking about making either the 2.5 or the 5 into an inverts only tank when the fish pass. What kind of shrimp would you suggest in the 2.5? The...

  7. The THINK Tank
    I've been trying to find some scientific peer-reviewed articles that deal with aquaculture and aquaria keeping. A lot of research I (and other people) find deals with environmental conditions, which can obviously be very different than what we keep in our little slice of ocean. This abstract I...

    Hello all, Thank you for stopping by my thread. This is my first aquarium and I chose to do a saltwater because after a lot of research it was very intriguing to be able to grow many different coral species in my living room. So, here it goes. Tank Started 12.28.2013 Tank went through a full...
  10. Crustaceans
    Recently acquired (6") chocolate chip star. Seems to be voracious and hasn't been close to the top of the tank (where he stayed with his prior owner) since added. Just wondering about these starfish in general. What do they eat? How big will they get? Tank size? Are they aggressive or...

    Does anyone have any experience with adding invertebrates with their horses, i have a tank bred pair of erectus with a cleaner shrimp and was wondering if i could add a emerald crab or maybe porcelain in with them or any other inverts, other than hermits and snails. If anyone has any experience...

    Hello, I recently purchased a sally lightfoot crab from my LFS thinking it would be a good addition to my CUC. Ill admit it was more of a spur of the moment buy and I did t do my due diligence of research before buying. After adding it to my aquarium I read in one of my books that it will eat...

I have a large blue starfish, bubble coral, anemone, bi-color angelfish, pink anthias, blue tang, and five other fish. I thought all was going well until I discovered that...

    Okay, I have read about every article and link I can find on the following statement with absolutely zero luck with specifics or personal experience regarding the subject. I would imagine at one point or the other someone has had a saddleback butterfly in their reef tank. I have one now after...
