    Do you guys no a good size fish that eats copopods. they are all over the glass and rocks. I know they arent a bad thing, but there are so many of them that it kinda takes away from everything else. Mitch

    HI- I have a 55 gal frag tank- set up for a year and a half- lots of pods, etc- have had a male madarin goby in there the entire time and just added a female a week ago- seems all they do is fight- he aggressively picks on her- will this resolve itself or is it impossible for them to get along??

    Scientific name: Valencienna strigata My LFS has a pair of these that I would like to get. I looked them up in my Marine Fishes book by Scott Michael. He gives this fish a rating of 2 on a scale of 1 to 5 for keeping them in captivity. I'm wondering why that is? I like this book but some of...

    Just added a goby to my 30 gallon tank. Everytime he sifts, we get a dust-storm. I have a filter running, but it stays very cloudy all day. Only gets clear at night when the goby is asleep. Questions: 1) How long will the milkshake continue? 2) Is there anything else I can do to make it...

    Well me and father race a 30 foot sailboat and when we get a ding, we use starboard for patching or to hold thr nuts and bolts in place when we don't have the time for repair... My question is why have some of the people here used it instead of sand, the stuff is sturdy and seems like a good...

    Any ideas for supplementing food for a sand sifting goby that is starting to look malnourished. One recommendation was enriched shrimp meal pellets that sink. Is this plain old shrimp pellets? Will this work? It eats some frozen brine, but isn't a very competitive eater. Any other suggestions...

    We have a 350 litre marine tank. The tank is round and is filtered with some live rock (25kg), 3inches coral sand, a cannister filter and a protein skimmer. We have had it running for four months and it houses 4 Percula clownfish (2 orange and 2 black and white), 1 Gold Rim Tang, 1 BiColor...

    I cant believe it ! I came home tonight and suddenly I have sugar white sand, this is the first time in 2 years that the sand is absolutely perfect. I swear it happened in the last 36 hours... I added 40 large turbos about 3 weeks ago, and they cleaned the new LR and glass efficiently, so I...

    We bit the bullet, drilled the hole in the floor and got the auto top off hooked up this weekend. Wow what a difference, the tank is much easier to deal with! The monster skimmer is also working much better with a consistent level of water in the sump. We actually have dark skimmate that...

    Hi Guys, been reading a lot lately, needed some advice. Which is more beneficial: sand sifting inverts that eat sand fauna, detritus, other things, or the actual sand fauna (ie: worms), which will take care of detritus also? What brought this up is I was wanting to get a sand sifting star, but...

    :( I'm a fairly new salt water/reef enthusiast & I admit that I have an addiction now - I can't go a single weekend without hitting at least 2 fish stores & I'm probably putting my family in the poor house with this new hobby. So I'm asking for some advice - my tank has been up & running about...

    I purchased a Choc chip star fish when I first setup my reef (being told they are reef safe by LFS). Later reading that they will eat every thing that cannot get away, I put them in jail (also doubles as a sump). The month that they were in jail, the sand bed in the main tank formed a slimey...
