    All from the 3 LFS in the area, price shopped and compared with online prices (liveaquaria, saltwaterfish, thatfishplace), it looks I will be purchasing more online due to cost (i.e. the clowns are a $10 difference) 2 firefish gobies (I know girly fish but the wife likes them) 14.95 each 1...

    Well, I've got a 55g tank sitting empty on a stand, but since I've never kept saltwater fish before, I thought I'd invest minimal cash at the outset and see how things go and try out some ideas before I go whole hog and buy the gear for the 55 and do up a sump, etc. So, I decided to throw my...

    What are the main differences between the red-legged and blue-legged hermits? I have heard opinions both ways as to which ones are better for a reef tank.

    Well, here we go! I am jumping out of the known into the unknown with a 24 gallon aqua pod. My fabulous girlfriend got me an aquapod 150W HQI system for Christmas. I am pretty stoked. Right now, I have a 47 gallon bowfront that is freshwater community. It just migrated to a planted tank. DIY...

    I was just wondering whether i should get any blue leg hermits for my 75 gallon. the reason i am being hesitant is because i have never had any hermits before and have read peoples posts about them terrorizing systems and eating corals. I only have snails (a variety of species) that have been...

    After I fed with Phyto last night, I developed a theory. The polyps on both my Devil's Hand and Fiji Yellow were out in full. As soon as I dosed the tank, the polyps on both pulled in completely. I'm wondering if full polyp extension is only observed when the corals are "hungry" or should I say...

    Just wondering if I should get more or not... in my 38g I have one turbo and 11 assorted nass, cerith and astrea snails. They're cleaning up the rocks and the tank is looking much better since their addition. Is a dozen snails in a 38g enough, or should I add more? Some tanks I've seen look...
