    I bought a used 30g setup with livestock from a good friend who was getting out of the hobby. Before I would take possession of the tank I read his 2 books twice, then bought one of my own and read it twice. This brought me up to speed on what I had missed since college. Liverock, livesand...

    I figured everyone else is doing it nowadays, so why not me. I wanted to show how not to hurry. Reefing is a constant hurry-up and wait process.:rolleyes: Here's what I started with... 2 old tanks and an old 2 bulb light. Display tank is a 125g non RR I bought new in '99. The second tank...

    I got about 10 astrea now.. but i hear if i get hermits they will eat my snails. I need some serious upgrade of CUC to my 55 gallon reef. Any number of snale crab ratio suggestions would be great. Crushed coral is getting kind of filthy due to waste.

I came here trying to find out the details. I am fortunate in that...

    Reeftopia gets another thumbs up! This week I received yet another order of blue leg hermits, scarlet hermits & turbo snails. The clean-up crew was in tip top shape & the scarlets were larger than expected. As always Reeftopia delivered exactly what was ordered & on time. I also picked up a...
