    Hello all. Just looking for some input on my pink spot goby. We've had him for about 3 months now, used to be very active but after we upgraded tanks last month, all he does is hide in his cave. Very difficult to catch him in action. However, he did come out to feed. Now I am a little worried...

    I would like to add a sand sifting goby to my 29 gallon tank to help stip up the sand bed some. Most of them i have read about require a larger tank. Are there any species that would do well in a tank that size?

    This all started with a 72 gal fish only bow front. Then we saw all the reef tanks set up at the fish stores and HAD to have one of those too. The first one was a 13 gal with PC's which was quickly followed by a 42 with T5's, which still wasn't big enough so we converted that one into a 180 with...

    I have a long time established system and noticed my Substrate had lost its brilliant white appearance in some of the more open areas. I thought I would try some Sand Sifting Gobies to help things out. <O:p</O:p Man, these guys are busy at work all day long. They have help sift my Substrate and...

    Ok, so I am "allowed" to use my 180 in the living room. We've decided that the living room carpet can be sacrificed :) I've cleaned out the tank, here is a "before" picture. I'll have to reinforce the stand and fix the canopy to open in the front. (stand and canopy I'm going to use aren't in the...

I went through a bloom about 3 weeks ago and afterwards, the sand cleared up nicely. I increased the light time again (to about 12 hrs of act and 10 of wh)...

    I've been plagued by the ich gods again putting my guard down for a year. I'm leaning toward taking out all my fish and put into hypo salinity, leaving the display fallow, but I'm afraid if I use the tank I have, it will be too small. This happened a year ago and put fish in a 10 gallon tank and...

    I've got 3 nassarius snails from my 30 gallon tank that I was thinking of transferring to the 90 gall BB. I know that they like to live in sandbeds and wondered if they'd be OK on a BB tank. Anyone have ideas?

Anyone know what it could be? Second thing is my sandbed seems to be collecting a lot of dirt. It gets weird little bits of...
