    someone local is giving away a parrot fish. I don't know yet if it is the salt or fresh kind yet so I am waiting for a reply. I can take it no problem if it is a fresh cause I really don't have any fish in there since Jack died. If it is a salt water parrot, has anyone had one? Keep in mind...

    Did anyone see last nights Blue Planet on Animal Planet? It was the "Coral Seas" episode. WOW! That one really covered alot of the corals and fish we keep in our tanks! It was really cool to see how the fish and corals are in their natural habitat.

    Looking to add a puffer to my next tank. I've never looked into this before so I'm wandering if puffers will bother zoas or mushrooms? Also, are there other fish that would be considered unique looking that could be added to a tank that will not feature stony corals? Lions, eels???? what...

    I noticed a bunch of mucus today. It looked like the nests parrot fish make at night. Then I noticed that the 6 line came out of a crevice right beneath it. Do they make mucus nests as well?

    OK, sounds like a crazy question, but I'm wondering whether they are deep sleepers, or whether they are out cruising around at night. Why do I want to know?....... I'm getting one from Salty65gal tomorrow. Will be my first mandarin. I'm thinking of putting it in one of my established...

I purchased this through AquaTouch here in Arizona, with premixed saltwater (so I only have to wait a week to...

    This is a topic I would like to discuss. What are your thoughts on fish in a BB tank? Before you answer that, ask yourself this, "Why do I have a BB tank?" If the answer is for algae control or such, have you considered the kinds of fish you keep? I went BB for three reasons: 1. Hair algae was...
