    Okay since I finally purchased my first pair of clownfish, I just wanted to know what everyone is feeding theirs. My LFS recommended a brand called spectra that is pelleted but my fish don't seem to eat it well. So I just wanted to see what other options are out there. If you vote on the poll...

    I picked up a coral beauty a couple weeks ago to try in my reef as I've had good luck with them before. Not so with this one, so he needs to go. He's almost trained to eat from the net so I should be able to get him out in the next few days. He eats Rods Food, brine, zooplankton, cyclopeeze...

    I picked up formula one pellet food from Danco's and have been using the product for a few days now and I am very happy. Since I have zero time the dried food is easier for me to use and my fish get to eat every day. The Pink square anthias loves the stuff and it comes in carnivore and herbivore...

    I got a new clownfish 4 days ago and he hasn't eaten at all. I keep dropping in flake and pellet food and most of the time he doesn't even notice it. I even dripped some garlic juice on some food and he didn't take it. The pellet food is what he had been eating in the LFS too. It's starting...

    Hi All, I am in the midst of an all-out war on hair algae. I need to call in backup. I am considering getting a lawnmower blenny, foxface, or blue-legged hermit crabs. I removed the zebra hermits and pin cushion urchin from my tank about 3 months ago. This could be what caused the balance...

    Anyone use this product? I’m curious on how long to leave the Silicate Remover in the tank before it needs to be replaced? Also is it an exchange type of resin that will leach the silicates back when it’s used up? The package states that several applications may be needed if the initial silicate...
