    I researched the horseshoe crab threads and it was a pretty big no on them. I have a 90g and there is not much rock and the pieces are all really big and firmly planted. At the most there will be some soft corals and medium light things in there for a while with just 4 sets of PC's lighting...

    Well this is supposed to be flame free but give me both barrels if I am being a goober. The LFS says that there is a type of plain opaque bubble tip anemone that is hardier than the ones with colored tips that can take flourescent lighting and will actually live. I have read a lot and...

    I have a Detritivore kit arriving on Friday from Inland to re-seed my DSB (bought one from IPSF in Feb. when tank was established.) When I added the first kit I had no fish in the tank, now I do. How do I keep my fish from feasting when I add the new kit??

    Ok, this may be a little odd, but I can't decide whats best to do here. Background: My mom died when I was a little more than 1 yr old. She was 19. Her and my dad got married when they graduated, and I came along 4 months later. I have no memory of my mother. Just photos. Until now, this was not...

    The local LFAS got in a coral today, looks like it might be a flower pot coral to me. It's listed on thier invoice as Goniopora, blue eyed, med. Does anyone recognize this coral name? Is it a flower pot coral? I may try and get a pic of it tomorrow during break if they still have it. It's...

    Friend of mine had a lamp fall on his 10 gal tank tonight (cat did it!) and it broke the glass. Anyway, all he had in it was a small false percula, and I told him I'd take it. I've already got 2 larger false perculas in my 55 tank that I've had for 3 months and I'm wondering if adding this...

    Hello...I just added a damsel (blue w/ yellow tail) to my 30 gallon long tank. I only had one black and white striped damsel in my tank before adding the new fish. Both fish are about the same size. My problem is with the older damsel constantly chasing the new fish. Can the older damsel cause...

    I recently added blue & scarlet hermits, cleaner shimp, turbo snails and have live sand in the tank. There are doing really well and look great. I am about to do my first bi-monthly water change since I added them. Should I still siphon throught the sand to get out the debris or just leave...

    I semi-recently started dosing Reef Solution by Aquatic Ecosystems. This is an "all in one" additive. I do not add ANYTHING besides this stuff and a variety of fish foods. So far, I must say, it is performing rather well! I was just wondering how other people are dosing it. It says on bottle to...

    Hi everybody! I've been reading this website for many, many hours since I discovered it last week and I hope some of you can help me with a couple question. Two weeks ago I bought a pair of Maroon Gold Clownfish. They seem to get along very well and they were all over my 100 gallon aquarium...

    My hermits decided to dine out French tonite. I came home to find the hermit crab club monthly meeting at the front of the tank where a lovely main course of my margarita snail was being served. Oh well its survival of the fittest on the reef! But what a degrading death...first Im going to...

    Hey guys, I just spent hours redoing my entire website to try to make it easier to navigate. I also now have just about every coral and fish that I have in there. The only thing I am not happy with is that the pop up menu gets in the way. I can change that but it means changing the html code...

    I might be getting a little ahead of myself, I'm only on page 56 of The Conscientious Marine Aquarist. Lets say that I have a 75 gallon tank with 75 pounds of live rock, and 4 inches of sand bed. What the max number of soft corals I can put in that set up? I would also like 4-5 fish(less if...
