I have been using R/O water and do not have a protein skimmer. The tank is 20 gallons and has about 12 lbs of...

    One of the things I love about this hobby is witnessing the unexpected or unusual behaviors of my tank denizens. So, I thought I'd share some oddities about my critters that show how stereotypical behaviors we expect from a species is a rough guideline at best. First I've got an odd little...
