hey i got a fire dartfish and was wondering how to pair him with another one or how to tell the difference between male and female. the reason i want to pair him is because i got a coral banded shrimp who has been pinching my coral and has quite an attitude so back to the lfs. also could fire...
Ok, I'm looking for a few suggestions since this is just getting depressing.
My 30g all-in-one is taking off far better than I ever imagined (parameters, growth, etc). So well, in fact, that I've chosen to make an SPS-dominated reef with some brilliant colors.
While expected, my fire shrimp...
Well everyone it has been some time since I have posted. So I thought I would share my build so far. The tank is a 120RR AGA. I custom built the stand and canopy. Here are a few shots so far.
So this is my first tank and so far it has been a great experience.
66 Gal tank
Aqua Eel 500 canister filter
Skimmer 300 L per hour
2x power heads
mozoo light 2x150w MH,4xT5
4in sand bed about 66lbs
2x blue leg hermit crabs
4x skunk cleaner shrimp
For just under a year, I've been stalking the forums to learn as much as possible before building my first reef tank. What began as a 72G bow has been revised to a 30g nano after learning of a job change that will move me across the country. I just finished the tank and stand two weeks ago, so I...
I've got a 90 gallon bare bottom tank, mostly sps. Currently I have a false perc and a royal gramma. I had a regal blue tang but he died a few months ago. Anyone have suggestions for reef safe fish? I was thinking of a yellow tang, another clown, blue chromis, cardinal fish. Ideas?
I am looking into getting a new fish... and I want something that has a personality, and something that looks awesome... I only have a 14 gallon so I know I am slightly limited... but I would like to see some pics of what you guys think to be the best inhabitants and pics would be appreciated...
I figured it would be appreciated if I stopped starting a million threads to ask questions and just made a build thread.
I am starting with a 48 gallon tank that was obviously designed by a committee of mentally challenged people, and purchased by another one. The tank measures 18x20 by...
:p This is my 72 gallon bow front reef. I had it for aprox. 2.75 years. In the past six months i begain keeping SPS corals. So far i have a nice mix of Soft, SPS, and LPS along with a clam and pulsing Xenia. I have one blue tang, yellow tang, two clown fish, coral beauty, and purple dotyback...
A question for peppermint shrimp owners. First off so you know what I'm dealing with, I have a 60gal reef tank with sump, fuge, LR, LS, 5 chromis, pacific blue tang, 2 ocellaris, purple fire fish, neon goby, 2 cleaner shrimp, clean up crew, soft corals, and frog spawn, and green star polyps. I...
OK it has been almost 6 months to the date since i had fish in my big 72 gallon tank. I just got the new ASM G3 skimmer today and it will get hooked up in a few day. I don't have the money right now for fish but soon i hope. I wanted some fish finally which is one reason i got the new skimmer...
Amy had a long day of frag shopping in St. Louis today. We hit three stores and then she cleaned out my tank! Pics below:
Of course she still has a three hour drive home. Kids have been cooped up all day and will be exhausted, acclimation time, the rest of the pics may not make it until...
