  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hi, I'm new to Reef Tank. Relatively new to marine aquariums. Anyway, I'm upsizing to a bigger tank, transferring fish and live rock and this little guy is swimming around. Does anyone know what it is? Bad or good? Should I throw him in the new tank or not?

    Hi all, I have just started seriously trying to raise cleaner shrimp larvae. My current batch has been going for a week and there are at least 6 in there that are going strong. I had a large die off last night because I ran out of BBS so they died of starvation.:o I am not raising them in a...
  8. The THINK Tank
    In your opinion........... Is this a goal that is achievable by hobbyists? With the amount of asexual reproduction and fragging that takes place in the hobby, is this a worthwhile field of study and research? Does the science exist to give us a fighting chance of success? Is...
