    I have a 12 gallon nano that has two clowns a LTA and about 10 lbs of LR. I have an issue with my pencil urchin who seems to have a ton of old coraline growth on him. The urchin's spins must be filled with phosphates as the only place I have anything green is on his spines. He looks like a green...

    Just recently got a pencil urchin and he has just about whitened all of my LR which was covered in coraline algae. Will it come back or should I nix this guy. I liked my LR pink not white. thanks

    I ordered some fish/inverts from a different vendor... nothing too unusual, but nice to get something new... and... you can use your new discount if you were lucky enough to get a UPC. I'm not positive the barcode works, so you may have to enter the code at the bottom or have them to enter it as...

    I've been plagued by the ich gods again putting my guard down for a year. I'm leaning toward taking out all my fish and put into hypo salinity, leaving the display fallow, but I'm afraid if I use the tank I have, it will be too small. This happened a year ago and put fish in a 10 gallon tank and...

    My neighbor just bought 8 Berghia Nudibranches. He has aiptasias BAD, and I gave him the link from a site I found online. If anyone else has aiptasias, these guys eat them, and them alone. In 3 or 4 months hopefully, they will have eaten all of them in his 75 gallon tank. Problem remains if...
