    So i need to replace my sand sifter in my tank. RIP cookies (diamond back). I looked into engineering gobies and they seem like a good match for my tank. Then i did a little more research and i heard a couple stories of them killing fish and inverts. Live aquaria says reef safe and peaceful...

    Hello! I recently got a sand sifter starfish about a week ago. I noticed today that there's a lump on it's back. It is moving and changing shapes. I am not sure if it is just food in its stomach or if something is wrong with it. I am concerned and have never had this happen with a starfish...

    I'm looking for a good sand sifter for my 20g long mixed reef. I don't think I am comfortable with adding a cucumber because I don't want to risk the poison. I am looking to keep my sand sparkly white. Suggestions?

    I have a tiger conch that was quite active for a couple of weeks. A few days ago he buried himself completely in the sand (no eyes sticking out). I checked on him today and he's still in the same place. I pulled him to the top of the sand bed and he stuck his little leg out and re-buried himself...

    I just got a diamond watchman goby and he is making a huge mess in my 120 gallon. He is very cool to watch, but is clouding up the water something awful. My tank is 1 1/2 years old with a 2 1/2 inch deep sand bed and the substrate is a fine grain sand. There is a lot of silt in the sand that...

    I've been in this hobby off and on for over 20 years, but I'm not quite sure what's going on in one of my tanks. It's a young (+/- 6mos) 125G, 55G sump, and a 10G fuge. This tank is all soft and LPS corals, 10 smaller sized fish, and a bunch of various inverts. Params are all normal, no3 and...

    Alright so I should lay out what we got instead of just harassing people. There's the 75 gallon, about 15g sump. Well, it's not really a sump I guess, just a fuge with a place to put the skimmer. The 75 has about 100 lbs of LR (about...), corner drilled to the under stand fuge. The fuge is...

    Well, today started out as a real bummer with our seahorse tank. I did maintenance on the tank yesterday, blowing detritus off the rock work and water change. During the water change I vaccumed the sand bed and stirred up a bunch of junk as well. I didn't think anything of it and thought all...
