  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hi! I've had a 30g tank for almost 4 months now, three weeks ago I added my first fish, a rusty angel. When I brought him home he ate readilly and was very active. Yesterday I noticed the fish was much less active than before, he is not swimming erradically, he is only shier than before. I...

    I am purchasing a 90G tank (including sump/protein skimmer) from someone who is combining aquariums. The tank has been running for several years. I'm taking the live rock (~70lbs) and sand with the tank. He's been running it as a reef tank (his corals are beautiful), but he's keeping the...

    My son and I bought two new fish. I asked about the Chromis and about the pygmy angel and explained what I have in tank already. Which is dragon goby, royal gramma, 2 perc clowns. The LFS guy asked me if the royal was aggressive I said no...he said to kind of watch him with the pygmy angel. I...

    I was considering getting a Lemon Peel for my 40gal reef tank but was a bit unsure about housing it as I thought members of the angel family like to snack on corals. My LFS had recommended the yellow tang but unless I'm mistaken, my tank is way too small for one. The more I go there the more I...

    Can i put a Pygmy Angelfish? A Fire Fish? A Clarkii Clownfish? A Tomato Clownfish? A Maroon Clownfish? I'm not intending to keep all of these fish, just wondering which would be fine. I'm going to have coral so put that into consideration, too. Also, if you wouldn't mind, shoot out any...

    we have some really great fish and corals in right now. I'd say the highlights are an aussie harlequin tusk, fisher's angel, gold saddle rabbitfish, a majestic angel, a trio of pygmy angels that play nice together, and an rbta with a pair of ora host percs. also got in a "shipment" of LE sps...

    I've been noticing prices of SW fish going up and up over the last 6 months. I asked a couple of LFS owners and they blame trasportation costs from high gas prices. Wondering if you are seeing big jumps in prices? Here in Cincinnati OH, this is what I've been seeing lately among 5+ LFS...

    Hello. :wavey: I have a 12 gallon nano cube with a Diadema pseudochromis in it and was wondering if it would get along with a Firefish. If not would it get along with a purple Dottyback.

    Now that the 46 bowfront is a reef again .... (and my whole attitude is that everything is all new so lets do it right) I was thinking about analyzing everyday things too. So ... I have a 46 bowfront, bare-cutting board bottom, drilled, with a rubbermaid sump 70' away down in the basement...

    Well things were looking bad for the inhabitants of the plastic tub basement reef ... so today was moving day. The 46 would not come up above 70 degrees so i stole the heater from the plastic tub ... it took 2 hrs for the 46 to heat to 75 and during that time the tub dropped to 68. I moved the...

    I'm new to the forum and am looking for advice. I've had a 110 reef tank for 6 years and would like to add some corals. Looking for advice on some easy to start with corals. I purchased a rock loaded with mushrooms and some zoas which are doing well. Any further suggestions would be appreciated.
