    Ignoring the cost of these two fish, which do you prefer the royal gramma basslet or the orchid dottyback. I'm thinking of adding one of these fish to my 35gallon reef tank but i arrrghhh i can't decide which one.

    yesterday I happened upon an orchid dottyback and I have been looking for one for months. I asked if it would go well in my 20 which has 2 firefish (established) and a lovely pearly jawfish (I just got a week ago). They said it would be fine with the jawfish but what happens FIRST thing- the...

    Okay... I am extremely upset about the death of my brand new orchid dottyback. In what seemed to be overnight, or near first light. I found him behind my rockwork, as I started to see movement, which were my nassarius snails seemingly heading towards him. He was laying somewhat sideways...

    Ok, I'm looking for a few suggestions since this is just getting depressing. My 30g all-in-one is taking off far better than I ever imagined (parameters, growth, etc). So well, in fact, that I've chosen to make an SPS-dominated reef with some brilliant colors. While expected, my fire shrimp...

    I have a 8 gallon nano tank. I am looking for a couple of fish that are active and will not hide all the time. I have a yellow damels in there now and it buries everything. I am going to get rid of him. ( if anyone wants him let me know). If you know of any fish please let me know. Thanks, Amy

    Reg and I have been planning to put together a 40 breeder system for months. A few weeks ago, I finally found a new job (working in the aquarium industry no less!). This means we finally have the means to do what we first envisioned for this project. First, we both work full time, go to...

    Jen and I were gone to Door County once again (probably the last time for quite some weeks now) to go ice fishing. I can't say that was terribly enjoyable as it was bitterly cold for about 2/3 of the day and we only actually caught 3 fish (all of which were on the lines as we were pulling the...

    If it's not too late, I'm hoping to enter. I just got a job in the aquarium industry, and everyone in the office has a nano on their desk so I figured I had to join. What I'm thinking of doing is a custom rimless aquarium around 15 gallons with a sump area able to accomodate an old prizm...

    Okay, so a few months ago something happened and we lost all but one of our fish (tomato clown). We never found out for sure what caused it--the corals were fine, all levels tested fine. It was a mystery. Anyway, about three or four weeks ago we added a new goby. He's fine and happy. This...
