    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...
  2. Reef Fish
    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...

  8. nano build off 2008
    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 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...
