    So the LFS talked me into buying some frozen rotifers (5 bucks, worth a try right?) I was wondering if anyone else uses these for their filter feeders. Also how much for my 75 gal, livestock list below. I was planning on using the rotifers and phytoplankton on different days, swithcing back...

    I got something unusual in my tank that I haven't been able to figure out. It hangs upside down under some LR, light does not touch it. All you can see of it are white luminescent tips on the end of its tentacles. Otherwise the creature is clear. I really only notice it when I first turn the...

    i don't know when they first appeared but i didn't think anything of them untill i noticed them all along the back of the tank. so what i did what i thought was the logical thing to do and scraped them away. big mistake. now they are on all of the shaded areas of rock. Sounds like aiptasia...

    I recently bought a hatchery for brine shrimp but I have three questions . 1- after the eggs hatch should i turn the air pump off or leave it on? 2- do I need light ? 3- do i need to give any kind of food to the newly hatched brine shrimps ?

    Hi, My name is Asia and I have a 35 gallon salt tank. I went to my local pet store and bought a few inverts to put in my tank and saw a pregnant Peppermint shrimp. I am unaware of how long she has been with eggs, but am scared that she will lay them and I won't be able to raise the babies. I...

    I am brand new to anything reef, or even saltwater for that matter. I am curious as to how I should be interpreting the behaviour of a few corals that I have bought. Also, I just realized that the guy in the lfs didn't tell me what these were. I had asked for something hard to kill so he took...

    Can you do like a watchman or bi-color blenny? I don;t think it will matter soon, my scooter will probably die soon of starvation, thank you lFS!

    Hello, I just saw that my True peppermint shrimp is carrying eggs. So I'm going to try hatching them again. I tryied it years ago, and it failed, they hatched, and then died. many mistakes on my part, but leared a lot from that first attempt. My thoughts are to set up a ten gallon hatching...

    Mother in law just gave me a green mandarin for an early xmas gift. Said she went into the LFS to purchase a gift card and just had to buy the fish. What bugs me the most is that a lfs would sell any fish, not knowing anything about the receiving tank, occupants, size, how long its been...

    This is the 3 brood but the first one carried to full term. Confirmed 16 babies so far. Earlier today, I saw a tail in the dad's mouth for a brief second and he sucked it back in so I figured I better keep an eye out after the lights went off for an hour and sure enough. Since this is my...

    I bought the finest net I could find anywhere but it wont catch newly hatched brine shrimp. I want to be able to add them to my tank shortly after they hatch but at that size they slip right through the tiny little holes in the net I got,:mad: What does everyone else use?????? i was thinking...

    I know I will probably get a lot of grief for still having this guy but I wanted to try a few things before returning him. I have a 24 gallon with about 40 lbs of live rock that is about a year old with a decent pod population. I have also been hatching brine shrimp once a week and adding it...

    WTH!!! I have a brown, green and purple tip acropora. I fed the thing (things) what I usually do just yesterday. I grind up about a teaspoon of cyclop-eeze in a cup of my tank water and then add one cap of DT's phytoplankton about an hour later. The thing looks like it is nearly losing its...

    Has anyone in the club raised clowns? I went down last night to see my clowns had eggs. I know that in the community tank it would never happen(to many scavengers) but has anyone raised them in their QT or in a tank by themselves?

    My buddies got a pregnant seahoese and we need to find a good source of food for new born horses. Does anybody have any reccomendations for this situation without waiting forever for feeder hatcheries to arive? What about a bare bottom tank and using live copepod cultures for feeders? Anyways...

    :freak: The male Eructus we bought Jennm just spit out about 120 fry. I got cought with my pants down and didn't have anything hatched for them.
