    Hello there. I have a 55 Gallon glass tank overflowing to a wet dry sump. In my sump I have a coralife super skimmer that outlets into my home made refugium. I have ran an overflow back from the refugium to the sump in case the return pump cannot keep up with the skimmer pump but really they...

    Hi - In search of trying to figure out what in the underworld I have in my nano tank, I stumbled upon this site. After downsizing from a 70 gal to a 20 gal tank we had a cascade disaster that I *thought* killed everything. To my surprise I found that several things have survived and are...

    Thought I would share my refugium experience as I have been very pleased with the results. I have had reef aquariums for ten years now and have tried all the equimpent (ie. trickle filters, bio-balls, protein skimmers, underground filters) and have spent hours schleping salt water from the fish...

    I searched through some of the posts but still cannot figure out what these are. They are on the glass (only at night) about the diamater of a pencil eraser (smaller) but totally flat. They are very uniform and hang out together in groups (how cute). They also are crawling around on the LR...

    Well I bought 3 green chromis last Tuesday. Guess what 7 days later 2 are dead. Waste of money. Went to a different LFS as well. This is after a month ago buying 2 clowns that lasted 3 days. Tank can not support fish so its coming down when the last chromis dies. This probably will...

    My tank is infested with bristle worms. I've tried everything to get them out including: traps, arrowhead craps, 6 lined wrasses, etc... and nothing has worked. There are hundreds burrowed in my live rock, corals, and living in my gobies' dens. How do I get rid of them without killing my live...

    I have a yellow tang and I'm not sure if I'm overfeeding it. The lfs told me to feed it seaweed wraps. so everyday i put a 1"x6" piece into the tank attatched by a elastic band. And about once a week I feed it mysis shrimp, about the size of a quarter of a dime. Is this right?

    I have a TON of baby snails. They have black shells and are crawling on the glass near the sand. Is this something to be worried about?

Would like to stay with VERY hardy and colorful fish, also dont want a fish that will get huge on me....maybe...

    I'm in the process of restaging a new 24 gallon Aqua Nano and I don't want any more problems. When it's time to add fish I was wondering what would be very neat, hardy and fun. I think all Gobies are jumps, if so I don't want them. What does the community think???

    I have a 40 gallon hex reef tank with a Neon Dottyback and an Arc Eye Hawkfish. I have a mixture of LPS, Leathers, and Softies, plus one small Scroll Coral. I will be adding 1 small Gold Stripe Maroon Clown soon. Depending on which fish I get, I will add it next or wait and let it be the last...
