    Yeah!! It's been 4 months since I started the Saltwater Journey, I have been patiently waiting for the uglies to dissipate, and for this tank to look like something I want to stare at. I have been nervous about purchasing fish and making the right choices to go ahead with. Several false...

    I haven't had any fish in my reef for a couple months now. A while ago I looked into naso tangs and have been waiting to get one. I picked this female blonde naso tang up from the LFS just about an hour ago and she is still acclimating. I think she is ~3.5 inches and she is going to be the only...

    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...

    I added this yellow tang coming up on a week and he doesnt eat much and twitches about and sometimes will dart slightly downward and graze the sand and flip the sand into the air. He hides any time I walk into the room and feed. I try to target feed him but he doesnt take any of the food. He...
