poop

  1. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    I have a narrow lined puffer who has been with me for two months in my 125. He eats well, still hides under an over hang a bit but is kinda social. His favorite food is scallops. This morning I noticed that he had a long white poop following him. I have read that this can be a sign of...

    Ok - a little silliness, but wow, does a sea urchin poop a whole lot! It took me a week before I actually saw it in action and finally figured out what the heck all those little balls on the sand were. So... next logical question... do I have to clean this up, or does another critter in the...

    Honestly it looks like he's pooping out the blackworms I feed him, but I figured I'd ask since it looks a little strange:

    I have a 30 Gal set up with powerhead, protien skimmer, and filter but I cant help the poop and bacteria build up in the hard to reach corners. About once a week I do about a 5 gal water change and I have about 35-40 lbs of rock...Are the corners okay to leave a bit dirty? Whatever I can reach...

    I got home a little while ago and found one of my Turbos basically sitting on my Leather, so I grabbed him to move him and found a TON of crap under him, and him all pulled up in the shell only showing a weird swirly thing with a hole in the middle... I'm new, is this snail poop and snail anus...

    Ok I know this is a weird thread but I just have to know what it is. It's the small wworm looking things on top of the sand in the picture. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/wxosid1erm1za4o/eHmuTy4YEC

    It is dropping brown sort of balls out of its mouth and I'm not sure if its poop or eggs? because if it was eggs i think my royal dotty back would go for them?

    I absolutely love my turbo snail. It clean my tank really nicely, but unfortunately leave a nastily little gift afterwards. He poops ALL THE TIME making my tank looking messing and full of poop. WHat can I do to get rid of all this poop?

    I currently have a turbo snail and it is great! It eats the algae very fast and makes the glass and rocks looking nice and clean. The only problem that I have with it is that it poops all the time! It clean the algae, but leaves a bigger mess afterwords!!! What can I do to clean up his poop?

    Alright so i have a few questions. I have a chance to buy a 12g biocube for 40$. First off is that big enough to happily house a mantis shrimp? Ive seen a few in some LFS's that were about 12 inches if i were to guesse. Do they get much bigger then that? Is there any types of corals i could...
  14. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    Not sure if this is the right place to post, but thought i'd give it a shot. I cycled my tank a few weeks ago and the LFS said I was ready to add a clean up crew. I added the livestock below last week and they are definitely not adding to the waste more than anything. After only one week my...

    Nothing really visible on this large live rock with lots of purple coraline. But, two or three times a day it releases a white stringy thing that goes through the tank and dissipates into tiny fragments. Do live rocks poop? Ty. m

    I was feeding my H. crispa last night and wasn't paying close enough attention (trying to fend off my clownfish from murdering my hand) and I guess the area around my cuticles must have touched it or something because it felt like someone tazed my hand for a second and then just burned really...
