    I want to get a bunch of sand shifters to clean up my detrious that's buliding up and not making my sand pretty anymore. Nassarius snails I hear are good as well as serpant stars and cucumbers. What would be a good combination of sand shifters and what kind of sand shifters are there? Like how...

    One of my two yellow tangs I've had for a year has what looks like a nip out of its back dorsal fin, "Top fin" .... Like somebody nipped at him. Guys are fat and happy I think. Don't always feed twice a day. Dried seaweed twice a week, frozen herbavore cubes one a day and they even eat the...

    got a diamond back goby yesterday and now my tank looks like milk he has stirred everything up and covered everything with dust! I assume this is normal? Anyone else had one do this?

    I just spent three hours reading through the DSB myth thread and decided in all fairness to put up a pro DSB thread. Although I have not been in the hobby as long as many on here have. I research constantly for ways to improve the quality of life for the animals I choose to own. This is in no...

    I dont know the name of the little bugger but, what is the goby that sifts the sand and basically puts it back where he got it. I dont want the ones that swim all over and dive bomb my corals.

    Last night I added a powder blue to my 225. Woke up this morning and the Chevron is relentlessy circling him like a shark and beating the crap out of him whenever he isnt hiding in a hole. Im thinking the hour of abuse I have watched is already enough and I should try to catch the PB and...

    Well......Ive got some choices now, and quite a bit of room so I have options. I just sold a couple things taking up space in the garage and driveway and Im taking part of it to restock. Corals are my main priority, so I dont intend on buying any high dollar fish, but im open to...

    He wont let me get very close without hiding......so I cant get any detailed pics of him. I have seen him kind of chasing the mandarin, the pink spotted watchman and the tomini so far. Hes not being all that aggressive, but I hope its just curiousity and doesnt turn into anything else...

    So there is this 6-7" Chevron tang that has been down at the LFS for several months. He came in in pretty bad shape but has completely turned around and looks great. Im just curious if there is any reason I SHOULDNT add him. 225 gallon loaded predominantly SPS tank. Current fish are...

    so here i am, trying to figure out how to stock my tank. i'd like to put in a sand sifting goby, but i don't want the kind that takes a mouthfull of sand, than swims over the "reef" and spits it out all over the rocks/corals. i'd like to hear form everybody who has one or more of these guys...

    Hi everyone, I am noticing that my temperature from morning to night is fluctuating by an astronomical 8 degrees! With these cold mornings and my central heating off at night, I wake up to a tank that is showing 72 degrees. At night with the central heating on at around 10 pm, it shows near...

    Geoff asked me if i would lead a DIY group project for making my invisible rock lifts. I said i would. I think I would like to myself say why they are so much better than simple PVC lifts, as the material cost is signifigantly more. To give you an estimate, you are looking at $20-40 material...

    I am setting up a 165 gal reef tank with a 55 gal refuge. The tank is 84 inches long. I think that this a great tank for tangs due to the length. Anyway, I am wondering how many tangs can I reasonably keep in it. Here is what I am wanting to stock Naso Tang Sailfin Tang 3 Yellow Tangs Blue...
