  1. Tank Specs
    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...

    Help I am looking for a cheap way to kill or get rid of aptasia. My tank has become more of an aptasia farm than anything else. Neglect on my part, you don't have to yell at me... I kick myself everytime I turn the lights on. Some one sugested pulling the live rock out and letting it dry in the...

    Sorry on two counts. First, I feel liek I should post this somewhere else where only noob's post, and second the picture is poor at best. Nonetheless, I'm hoping someone can identify this little guy for me. It's in a really awkard spot and hard to view and photograph clearly. You can see the top...

    I bought what I thought was a peppermint shrimp for my 29gallon and now my wrasse has been missing for 3 days and my "peppermint shrimp" is always out and follows my mag float around when I'm cleaning the tank. My cleaner shrimp runs from the "peppermint shrimp". This shrimp seems to stalk...

    A little under a month ago, I noticed that my peppermint shrimp (Lysmata wurdemanni) were carrying eggs. I decided to try to raise them. This is my second atempt to raise shrimp fry, my first attemp failed quickly due to many issues. I've been recording my progress on a thread entitled "True...

    OK, I'm guilty of it yet again, a impulse buy from the LFS. I was hoping to get either a skunk cleaner shrimp or a scarlet cleaner shrimp, but the store was sold out. But they had many true peppermint shrimp (Lysmata wurdemani) and on ale to boot at $4.00 each. I've had one before and don't...

    Thanks to Ernesto, I had a power outage when I was away on vacation. (I was in the Outer Banks, and almost got trapped there by a flood, but that is a different story.) Because of this outage, my pump from the sump lost its prime and there was no flow from the sump to the tank for a couple of...

    Sooooo... sounds like the start of a potentially night-marish tank story, but it's not too bad.. still and all, I was pretty unhappy last night.. wow. I got a reef janitor package from saltwaterfish.com about 6 weeks ago... in that package was 5 peppermint shrimps.. very VERY small at the...

    I "have" a 125 gal w/120 LR. The tank was recently moved from an office to a residence. The whole thing was thriving pretty well. After the move I underwent a major red slime outbreak. It was pretty bad - about 90% of all rocks and sand was covered in that thing. I've been meticulously brushing...

    I went today to both places today and are beautiful :agree::agree::agree::agree:... CapBay has a lot of things (corals, tanks, fish, tons of clams, etc) and everything looked in very good shape, they changed some furniture and added more tanks... MarineFish changed many things too, added...
