    I recently purchased a SMALL Rose BTA from LFS. Acclimated fine and attached to a rock within seconds of laying him down. Tentacles were fully extended and he looked happy. Started moving (very slowly obviously) and was in my tank for about an hour before the lights turned off. At that point...

    Long story short - i've come down to a 10gal FOWLR for my black and white clownfish pair (I know, it's an addiction that i've been able to control, but not kick). As far as fish go, I know i'm stocked, and i don't want to push it because i'm going to be skimmerless. So I've decided I want to...

    Okay guys here's the list. I'd preferably like to get rid of the livestock before the dry goods. In fact, I won't sell any dry goods until the livestock is gone. I should add that EVERYTHING is no more than 2 months old, and most of the dry goods are no more than 1 month old. Livestock: Fish...

    I am in the middle of stocking my 40 gallon tank with the long awaited critters that I have shelled out all that money for. It is a 40 gallon breeder with a deep sand bed and 30 lbs on live rock on 30 lbs of base rock. It has been up for something like 4 months. So far I have a flame scallop, 3...

    I read in the archives that some have recommended emerald crabs to control hair algae. Rabbitfish is not an option due to tank size. I was just wondering if anyone had some experience with emerald crabs that they would like to share. I have some LPS, ricordia, and zoos. Are the crabs safe...

    Hello again all, Does it do more harm than good to vacuum the sand bed during water changes? Should I be vacuuming the sand bed at all? Can I have too many cleaner critters? I am beginning to think so from what I have seen/read on others reefs. I have about 200 nassarius snails, maybe...

    Do scarlet hermits and dwarf zebra hermits eat amphipods? Is one of these crabs better than the other, or should I buy a combination of these? Should I stock my tank with small shells for them to move into? Where should I get shells that small? Thanks
  13. Tank Specs
    Here are the specs on my little slice of reef. It is definitely a work in progress! The tank has been running now for about 3 years (the first of which, it was FO). It just went through move at the end of November, 2001 (that's why I have no coralline algae - it was covering the entire back...

    Hi everyone, I greatly appreciated all of the advice that I recieved the last time that I posted and would like to ask another question. My tank has finally cycled (joy!) and I need to add something to clean up all the alge that has grown. The types that I can see are some diatom alge, but not...
