    Greetings fellow The Reef Tank-ers, I figured that a tank profile would make good use of my first post here on TRT. This tank was started in July of 2006 and is my first "real" attempt at keeping a successful reef aquarium (well.. there was a 10 gallon before this one, but it was hardly a...

    Greetings all! Brand spanking new to the Saltwater world after having kept tropical freshwater off and on or many years. I just purchased an AGA 125 gallon "reef ready sort-of" used tank that is 72"x18"x22". The reason I say "sort-of" is that the holes are drilled (2 in each back corner...

    OK, its been a while, but I wanted to make a selection to what I might or can get and not just leave it up to everyone else :read: I located what I can with the free time which was available to me for I need now to move to the next step and make a fish selection for which SPS corals will be...

    I came up with the following list last night while looking through "a pocketexpert guide - Marine Invertebrates". The following corals require "moderate" light and not a lot of supplemental feeding; I'm looking for easy maintenance @ this point. I don't want to deal with chemical warfare...

    I think that my new regal angel has ich. I see small white dots, about four of them on his top back fin. He also has one dot on his right fin. So far he is the only fish in the tank that has any signs of it, and i want to treat it before it gets worse. My best estimation of why he has...

  11. The THINK Tank
    I have 2 Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) and there is something wrong with the larger female. She is about 3-3 1/2 inches long. Anyway something is eating the operculum and not the gill. And it is only being eaten away on one side, but there is no damage done to the gill itself...

    Hi all! This is my first post on this message board, although I have been hanging around here reading past posts and the various articles for several weeks now. First, a little about me, I've been successfully keeping freshwater fish for about 3 years and I'm interested in taking the plunge...

    I have a blood (red) cleaner shrimp that has always done well in my 56 gal reef and fish tank...the fish enjoy the shrimp's services, and the shrimp seems happy. The tank only has softies, mushrooms and polyps. There is a mandarin fish, and various algae critters. Do you think I should add...

    I recently purchased a 90 gal w/internal overflow. Have an excalibur skimmer (do not like it, am replacing with a Euroreef CS6-2) I am very new to this hobby but am quickly falling in love with it. I put in a 50/50 mix of fresh live rock and live rock taken from a 5 year old tank. The water...

    My tank has been running smoothly so far. It's been 2 1/2 weeks since I added my snails to my tank and the 3 scarlet reef hermits went in 1 week before that. I was wondering if my tank would be able to handle a cleaner shrimp as is or should I move some or all of the hermits out. I currently...
