    I just started my nano cycling yesterday and put some live rock in there. When I was looking in the tank I saw a tiny little something come out of the rock. It wasn't more than 2 cm long, and sort of a light beige color. I swear it looked like a small lobster-minus the claws. Is this a baby...

    From what I've read bristle worms (although ugly and painful to the touch) are ok to have in your tank since they also are cleaners. My question is, do they have there own population control?

    I'd like to know if anyone else keeps this species? My 3 are tank raised, dads were wild caught, and I cannot get them to eat frozen. I have been feeding live brine soaked in a vitamin supplement for a half hour before feeding, and I do soak the frozen mysis in with that, but the horses flat...

    Nice to see a thread on seahorses started here. I'm sorry bout the terrible pics, but you can see I love my ponies. We have about 125 ranging from 2 weeks up to adult right now. One room in the house is strictly for support. I grow green water, rotifers and brine just to feed them.

    I'm a bit confused on what to feed my future firefish. Yep I've decided I'm going to buy one this weekend. On liveaquaria it says they like finely chopped small crustaceans, vitamin-enriched brine fish (live or frozen), mysid shrimp, and prepared foods. Ok, so to a newbie, what does that mean...
