    After losing my sand sifting goby I'd had for over a year, my LMB looks like he's going to be the next to go. Also I haven't seen my cleaner shrimp that I've had for almost 2 years and don't know if they are gone too. I thought with as much brown algae I have that these guys would have plenty...

    OK, I bought a pistol shrimp Goby pair at the LFS - they called the goby a black barred goby but it didn't look like that at all. It was a white goby with light brown bars on it. Anyway, he went carpet surfing so an exact ID is impossible now. I still have the pistol shrimp, and he is now...

    I've got a LMB in my 75 reef. He used to be one of my favorite fish and still would be if he wasn't turning into a monster. A week and a half ago, I noticed that my Blue Hippo had white circles on his belly and sides. I started looking into fungal infections and other diseases as a cause...
