    Why are my Red Legged Crabs losing their legs. It seems like every few weeks I am finding a set of legs in the tank. I never find any dead crabs though so I guess that is a good thing. It looks like the whole leg from the body down are what is being lost. I have no other critters other than two...

    I did a stupid thing yesterday. I bought a Hatian pink anenome. I know I should research before I buy but I didn't. Now I am reading that they are not clown fish friendly and they don't get along with red legged hermit crabs. Anyone had any problems with this type of anenome?

    Are there any critters out there that taste bad but do a decent job of cleanup? I understand that Triggers eat just about any kind of invert but I'm hoping for some type of help on the clean up. So far, urchins, snails and red legged crabs are all apparently tasty treats for a triggerfish...

    I started to document alittle late into the project, but here you go. I made 2 frames with 2x4's (shown above) and than the bottom frame got pry wood top and bottom. I wanted the top piece of ply wood to be whole so I used a mill saw and cut perfect slots to slide over the...

    This is very, very strange. My wife picked up a clownfish from a LFS that I normally don't purchase from. However, the fish looked healthy and it did eat for her at the store (it was also $8 cheaper at this store than my regular shop). So I had him in the 125 for just over 36 hours, and...

    Hi, I have just supplied 3 new shells for my red legged hermit crab for when he out grows his current shell but how often do hermits change shells & is it essential that I place the new empty shells on their back to make it easier for the hermit to climb into or does it not really matter...

    I stopped by CBA last night and wow was there ever a selection of clams!!! They had to have over a hundred...easily!! I couldn't resist, so I picked up one of the little guys. I was wondering how long does it usually take for them to open back up? My guy is a little open, but not completely...

    Hello people, I have had a reef tank for about 1.5 years but I am by far still a freshman at it. My current tank is a 125g that as been up since March. When I do a water change (~25%) I get what I guess is a diatom explosion. Brownish slime on everything, which after a week starts to...

    Hello all, After spending another 2 hours pulling rocks out and picking hair and cyano algae off I have decided to try my hand at snails and hermits. I have a few to list to get an idea if they are all reef safe and a quantity to order. All from premium aquatics baha red legs red scarlet...
