    So I recently lost half of my fish to a disease that got introduced and I want to get ideas on what to add instead. I'm not going to add any new fish for a few months at least because this outbreak was fairly recent, but I want to have an idea of what I want in advance. My tank is a 120 gallon...

    Hi all, I've had my 30g innovative marine tank running for about 5 months solid now, only lost 2 hermits in the process. In addition I have a 10g sump underneath with a skimmer as well. I do water changes weekly and have several corals doing well. I've had 2 clowns in the tank for about 4...

    So many choices, so much temptation. How do you choose which fish would love your nano tank? Size and looks are not the only consideration when selecting fish for your nano. Learn more in Metrokat's latest contribution to the Marine Depot Blog: [READ] Nano Fish: Small Size, BIG...

    Anyone have any experience with Midas Blennies? I've been doing some research lately on them, hoping to eventually add one to my new 55 gallon FOWLR with 29 gallon sump once its set up. I have read that they can reach a max length of 6 in? Is that true? Would they be able to avoid being eaten...

    I got my first 2 fish for my 28 gal yesterday from liveaquaria. They arrived with great color and health. Feeding eagerly after just a few hours in tank. Still look great this morning. Very pleased with my first online order from them. 1. Close up of King Midas in his favorite hole 2. Wide...

  9. "Soft" corals
    I bought some live rock with a Midas Blenny, two clown fish, and a ton others. Everything seems to be fine, all the fish are doing great, but the live rock that I bought started peeling. It used to be white and soft, but now it started scabbing off. What should I do? I think it's dying. I'm not...

    So I'm in mourning. I woke up this morning to find out my Midas Blenny has died. I'm shocked. I'm not really sure why:( A month or so ago my canister filter gave out. I put a cheap filter on the back. I had a well trained fish guy come out and tell me I didn't need the canister. I have enough...

    I love my Midas Blenny. He's a cool fish, the way he just lounges all the time. It cracks me up, he's my chill fish. So my question is about his color. When I got him he was dark brown with tiny blue spots. His spots have seem to disappeared. But the very end of his tail is turning white. He's a...

    I run an open top tank and I am not willing to change that (I don't dig the eggcrate either). That said, I understand there is a risk of any fish leaping out at any time but I have never had trouble in this area. My wife likes gold midas blennies. I have never kept one but have heard/read they...

    Well on monday I successfully moved my clown pair to the display tank from quarentine and I removed my blue velvet damsel from display. When I took Blue Velvet back to LFS I found a Midas Blenny which is exactly what I wanted next. I put him quarentine and he even ate some brine shrimp monday...

    Hey guys its been a long time since I posted on here!!! I have been getting back into reefing again and decided to add a couple of new fish to my tank. How many more fish would be safe to add? 1 maybe 2? 72 gallon with about 100 pounds live rock, skimmer, fudge on back, couple of power...

    Ok, I'm looking for a few suggestions since this is just getting depressing. My 30g all-in-one is taking off far better than I ever imagined (parameters, growth, etc). So well, in fact, that I've chosen to make an SPS-dominated reef with some brilliant colors. While expected, my fire shrimp...

    OK, I'm a little late in the game to be staring a tank thread, but here goes. I'll go ahead and post some pics from the beginning up until today. I think my little tank has come a long way in a year and a half!! Here goes: Here was my tank when it was FOWLR back almost 2 years ago: This...

    This all started with a 72 gal fish only bow front. Then we saw all the reef tanks set up at the fish stores and HAD to have one of those too. The first one was a 13 gal with PC's which was quickly followed by a 42 with T5's, which still wasn't big enough so we converted that one into a 180 with...
