    Hey guys, I got a pair of Black Ice Clowns from LiveAquaria. One of them arrived perfect and swimming, the second one seemed lethargic. After normal acclimation procedures, the second clown struggled to swim and would often sink to the bottom and then get agitated and try to swim around. After...

    As a noob here with a just-getting-started tank (although we used what I think is really good purple rock and Caribbean reef sand, so it's got a head start), I'd really appreciate hearing the opinions of those who know (you all!) regarding livestock progression. I've got a Red Sea 650 in which...

    I have a 5 gallon cube 10" x 10" x 12" high Ecoxotic Picotope. It's virtually the perfect size for the area I have although I'm realizing that 14" is around the sweet spot for lighting and more, 15" probably good. After doing lots of research, I ditched the LED strip and bought a 24" high lamp...

    Yesterday I spent 45 minutes trying to catch my damsel fish. I tried luring him out with food and everything. I finally caught him after pulling all the rocks out and clouding the water with sand. Does anyone have any tips or techniques for catching fish? PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS AN EASIER WAY!
