  1. Anemones
    I got an anemone last Sunday and he settled into the rock work on about Wednesday and hasn't moved since. The only problem is he is very close to my feather duster. Today, Saturday, the feather duster lost his crown. The duster and anemone are both pretty secure in the same rocks and I'm...

    It feels like it's been a few weeks since I've posted on here, but that's because I haven't had much to post about! (I suppose this can be a good and a bad thing) My 20g is coming along nicely, and it's almost time for me to head off to school to take intensely difficult math courses, yay...

    Hey guys just an update. Haven't been on here much lately. Between buying our first house, moveing, and preparing for our little one, I've been swamped. We closed on our house a few weeks ago and packed and moved in 2 days (whew). The worst was the fish tank. I was a nervous wreck. Between...

    Anyone have any tips for getting clams and anemones to release their hold on rocks? I'd like to upgrade the tank these guys are in but not use the rocks they're attached to. I've tried annoying one of the nems (both I'd like to move are rock anemones) with a tiny powerhead but he didn't budge...

    Hi, I'm trying to upgrade from 10g to 40g. I put in live sand from the store as well as half of my live rock from the 10g. Ammonia. Nitrite and Nitrate are all reading 0. Do I need to cycle it via throwing a dead shrimp in there or am I safe to move the fish since the live rock is already...

  11. The THINK Tank
    As a reefer and someone who has been in the hobby for a while (20 years or so), I know one of the scariest things is moving an established system. There are so many stories were tanks have crashed or folks have major losses even when many precautionary steps were taken. I am about to move...

    Hey TRT members, I haven't changed anything in my tank in about a year plus. I want to rearrange some rock I have to make better use of my space. It isn't stacked against the back of the glass at all. I have the three peak island idea where I could scrape all sides of the glass if i wanted...

    I recently moved my tank from the back room to my living room. I also went from an external filter to a sump and skimmer. It is a fairly new 40 gallon tank, but after I made the move, hooked up the sump and skimmer and got it all running, my polyps remain closed, my mantis shrimp won't peek...

    Hi, Am moving an established 55G to a larger 240G tank in near future. Thinking about logistics. Found this from old threads - Thanks TCAMOS and JBERD My question is this - between steps 5 and 6 - Before moving your fish/corals, is it necessary to let the new tank cycle, given you are...

    I should be getting an order in tomorrow from BRS with all my plumbing for my upgrade. I'm moving up from a 46 Bow to a 65 gallon with custom drilled overflow. Although excited about the project, I have a few concerns and would appreciate some advice. This forum has been good to me, so here I...
  19. Clams
    How can I remove my clam for the rock its attached to? I'll be changing tanks in the near future and I most likely won't be putting that particular rock in the new tank. How can I safely remove him?
