  3. Seahorses & Pipefish
    I'm mulling over the idea of starting up a seahorse tank as my newest project since multiple family members have been wanting me to stick some in my reef, but I feel as though that's out of the question with my current inhabitants. I am curious as to whether I could mix a larger seahorse (or a...

    Since ich took all of my fishes:bawling:, I am in the planning period of a completely new stocking list for my forty gallon (not breeder). I have assorted soft coral, lps, and monti cap, but I do not mind being on the higher end of the bioload. So, what would be the ideal stocking list for a 40...

But before I even attempted to do so I did so reading on which dwarf angels to get. I read an article stating that...

I have a...

    Posted in Nano Reefs originally but realized this is more suited for general. I have been mixing my WC water for my 10g nano in a standard 5 gallon plastic bucket. I mix 3 gallons but only use a gallon at a time (I do regular frequent WCs every week). After I use the water I'm going to for the...
