    Coral beauty in a reef tank? I think this fish is beautiful... but I know being a dwarf angel they may nip at corals. What are your experiences, good or bad, with a coral beauty in a reef tank???

    I have a 3" yellow tang, which has been in my system for 6+ months. No livestock (ok, 5-6 frags, but no other inverts or fish) have been introduced for 4 months. I noticed two days ago a few small (eraser head, 1/4") tan colored splotches on his side. He had been eating ok, but not anymore...

    The purple tang that I just receintly purchased has died already... I'm not really sure what from as there was no "injuries". But, the one thing that clued me into that there was something wrong was the fact that the fish was eating but was appearing to get thinner even so. I tried feeding...

    We just realized tonight we have an elec current running through our tank! I can't believe we haven't lost a fish yet to this. We narrowed it down ( by unpluging stuff) to be the dart pump. I guess Niko said b/c of the closed loop it has be the same pump on there. The pump is only 3 months old...

    I have been reading a lot on the use of selcon to boost the nutritional value of the food I feed my fish. It will cure lateral line disease, add color and weight to your fish and also feed filter feeding invertebrates. I soak my nori and food cubes in .05ml of selcon for 15 min before feeding...

    I have a Regal (Hippo) Tang that had been sick with Ich. I removed it from my main tank and put in a 20 gallon qt tank. I treated it with a copper based medication and that got rid of the Ich, but while it was in qt I started to notice it was developing HLLE. I've been feeding it Formula Two...
