    Hey I can see a bunch of crap on the sandbed... wondering if there is any animal that might eat it. I was thinking snails but I already have 5 astrea, 3 nassarius and 1 conch (9 total for a 24gal) and it just occured to me that it might actually be their crap and who would want to eat their own...

    The pics look so bad on my computer. I was wondering if they would look different on the site. I built a live rock holder out of 1/2" PVC. It elevate all of the live rock in the back about 5" off the bottom of the tank. The rack goes between the two over flows. My Myjestic angel and...

    Hi guys, just a quick question. When my tank has cycled out, I already made a list of what I'd like for my clean up crew. And I was just wanting an opinion/recommendation on them, see if one is too much or not enough for a 30 gallon tank. Well, here's the list: Blue-Leg Hermit Crabs - qyt. 10...

    I need a good clean-up crew for my 55 gallon. What do you recomend? I was thinking 15 blue leg hermits, 3 turbo sails and 10 astria sails. Is this good. I am also wondering if i can get an anemone. I have a coralife 260 Watt light.

    My sand is not a lovely white expanse. Since I'm using Southdown I'm unsure how to siphon without pulling out the sand too. This isn't algea or diatom, just crud that needs to be vacuumed out. I find if I suspend it enough to get it going out in the overflow, I also get a lot of sand...

    This Saturday I am hosting a meeting at my house to sell as much of my livestock and rock that I can. I need to get out of the hobby for a while because I just don't have time to keep it up after my divorce. Kids and laundry seem to take precedence over having my arm in the tank. I just set...

    I’ve been using a turkey baster & spot feeding several button polyp colonies a couple times a week with brine shrimp! Within 15 minutes or so, my hermits start to cover the polyp’s trying to get at the shrimp! They don’t seem to be hurting the polyps but make them close up! Will the hermits kill...

    I just ordered these inverts for 2 tanks, a 75 w/ 20 ref. & a 49. I plan on splitting them 75/25 between the two. Am I going to have to watch out for ammonia spike after adding these guys, since it is such a large amount of new additions? http://www.saltwaterfish.com/ipage.html#100
