    Just seeded an above display refugium and i noticed a very large critter. After doing a bit of research i figured that it is an isopod but I am having problems determining if it is a bad one or not. Anyone know?

    I have a 14g biocube nano tank that's been set up for about 3 months now. Tank mates are couple of corals, a cleaner shrimp, emerald crab, turbo snails and two newer juvenile clownfish. I've noticed these little guys in the past, but not in such large numbers. I'm not exactly sure what they...

He's got such a strange face, I've seen a picture of this creature's head before but I don't know where, when or why. If you think he's...

    So I have an isopod problem and I am 95% sure they are the bad ones. I have been trapping these things as per this article. http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2006-02/bp/index.php I wanted to know if anyone knew of an isopod predator that I could employ. Also, any tips on trapping would be appreciated.

    I found a piece of dead coral in the gulf so we took it home to dry it out. Probably end up around a flower bed or something. But my GF noticed a bug crawling on it. In a moment of pure stupidity, I said, "Oh, that's a copepod or an amphipod, they're good and tossed it in my tank. I watched...

    Lately I've been noticing a lot of tiny clear bugs (almost ant looking) crawling around my rocks. I know I have some amphipods in there as I found a big one running around in the sand. But these don't look like they have a round back area. They look like ants. I checked out this site but I'm...
