    Hello, I am new to the forum and saltwater tanks. I have experience with many freshwater fish, but none with keeping any saltwater fish. I have had guppies, cichlids, breeding crayfish, plecos, conch cats, ghost shrimp, bettas, goldfish, and the largest tank was a 20 gallon. Where does that put...

    So my tank has produced baby Margarita and Banded Trochus snails.. But so far that's it.. Until today.. I noticed my Banggai doing what appeared to be "hiccuping" after the lights went out tonight.. On closer inspection they were eating.. As were the Chalk bass, and the Chromis.. But feeding on...

    Just wondering if anybody has bought lobster shrimp or crab from the supermarket live then placed them in your saltwater aquarium to be eaten at a later date.

    Hello Nano reefer friends.. I was just given a 10 Gallon Nano from a friend that has had the tank up and running for over a year now. It's clean.. looks good, I'll probably add another couple pieces of LR depending on what I want to do.. In the main part of my house is my 150 Gallon Mixed...

    Hello everyone! Can anyone if this crustacean for me? It hitch hiked on some life rock when I started the tank. It has a tail like a lobster but has no claws. Builds tunnels underneath the rock. He's about 3-4 inches now, starting to get aggressive and very quick! I have only been able to get a...

    Hi all, I have a question regarding compatibility among some shrimp I want. I also want a purple reef lobster :) Right now I have two peppermint shrimp and I really want to get a scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp and that purple reef lobster. Would these all work together? I had to say goodbye to the...

    Has anyone had any problems with purple lobsters eating their fish? Would the lobster be fine with blennies, gobies, and chromis'? And are they pretty good inverts and easy to care for.....do they have any drawbacks? And how aggressive are they? And are they good in pairs or just one per tank...

    Hey everyone, broke a few of the rules :bigeek: I know I know, I'll explain everything though. Recently my 29 gallon tank has just completed its cycle, Water parameters are fine and steady. There is green algae in particular the sand for some reason, with some brown diatoms here and there. Now...

    Tonight is the night! I bought a trap and I am going to attempt to catch the purple (spiny?) lobster that has been terrorizing my tank for years. I've had enough. It's gotten 4 or 5 fish and many of my cleaners. With the absence of the wrasse's (one of them was a gorgeous Dragon Wrasse) and...

    Would any of the following not attack a purple reef lobster or vise-versa? Small snowflake eel, fuzzy dwarf lion, huma trigger, blue toby puffer? That lobster would be bought slightly larger and the fishes small.

What kind of friends or tank mates can he have? Corals fish invets? anything? for people who have had them do you see them...

    Up for sale/trade is a blue spiny lobster that I bought a few months ago. It has grown quite a bit and is getting kind of large for my heavily stocked aquarium. He is about 3.5" to 4" long. Awesome scavenger to watch in your aquarium. Would like $20 or a few frags of whatever you have to...
