    Hi Everyone!! So it appears again I've been snatched up by a really great guy (apparently breaking hearts because I'm off the market again Sorry guys. ) We've been dating for well over a year now and have moved in together. It's likely going to end up in a permanent situation if you know what...

    My goby is all concave and thin. My tank is 2 months old, but the rock and water came from an established tank. Is there anything that I can add to the feeding regiment which consists of brine and seaweed. Also a random question. I found a little baby bird while injecting my lawn. I had to pick...

    HI Guys!!, On Saturday I added a small green bubble tip (about 3.5" in diameter) anenome to my tank, its gorgeous, I set it on the sand and, as I thought it moved to my rock formation and attached itself. Tonight I freaked out when I went to check it and I could not find it, finally I got a...

    Maybe you guys need to stop thinking of corals as animals, and start thinking of them more like plants. Example, ever grow a plant? If you listen to the fertilizer salesman, you'd think it won't grow without adding X amount of dollars of his brand of fertilizer. But yet, experience will tell...
