Looking to set up a simple small tank for a few of these guys. Looking to get this tank.
I have read that they like to eat shaving brush plants (which is not as invasive as algae as far as I know). Would the lighting on the tank be sufficient...
I really like the way these animals look and was thinking about getting a couple, I understand the eat algae, and the end of the tank were my hubby feeds has a bit of a problem. Will they eat on seaweed of they run out of algae? I can't stand the thought of anything starving to death.
Keep your camera charged and ready!!

Hello to those who read I have been catching advice from many of you. I just came home from the military when I had my son. He has fallen in LOVE with the fish tanks... (it doesn't even need fish just lights). I have been researching in depth about saltwater tanks and livestock. I am taking over...
... that you have ever given a fish of yours?
Cmon, you know a lot of us do it - we think of stupid names like Nemo for our clown. Here I'd love to see people list the kind of fish, and their given name (plus any relevant story as to how the said fish acquired the name).
In college I had a...

I picked up a lettuce nudibranch some time ago. For a week or so I could always find him, but its now disappeared and I haven't seen him for several weeks. He was eating great (I have plenty of food for him, sigh) and looked fine last time I saw him. I know they tend to wander off for awhile...
I was at the LFS today and I saw a Lettuce Nudibranch and I fell in love with it. I was wondering if anybody has kept one long term and if they are hard to take care of. I would like to put one in my tank but I don't know if I can. It's 55 gallons with about 60 pounds of LR and 50 pounds of live...

Well, I know it is partially my fault, but green hair algae has all but ruined my love of this hobby. My tank has looked like an Irish Chubaka since late November. I had the entire tank disassembled in late January when it was moved from Woodbury to Cottage Grove and the entire tank scrubbed and...
OK all. I want to get a list of fish & nudi's that will eat Flatworm's,(FW) and glass Anemones,(GA) and Bubble algae,(BA) and what ever bad algae's you may get in your tank sump/fuge but wont heart your Coral's LPS & SPS. So let's work to gether on this.
I need to get snails 'cause I gots hair algae. Does anyone have any small turbo snails they wanna part with? My tank needs many things and I'm on a tight budget, so I'm wondering if $1.00 per snail is fair to pay, or am I being a cheapskate?
