    Are sea cucumber good for a reef tank?
  2. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Hello all, Very happy to find you :beer:... Just started up 55gal reef tank about 6 weeks ago. Received some live rock from the Gulf with some unwanted stuff in it. My wife is not liking these things (see pics) that look like spiny slugs and there are other stuff on it too, like I noticed...
  3. NFMAS Member Tanks
    Hello Everyone! I'm new to this hobby as well as to NFMAS. I'm looking forward to meeting people at the next meeting, but I thought the best way to introduce myself might be to start a thread for my new tank. My tank is a 14g biocube. I've only made a couple of modifications to it so far...

    I am new to TRT and I am thrilled that there is a mantis forum here. I have two N. Wennerae in my 55g display tank. I set this tank up in August of `07 and I bought a LR/LS package from Tampa Bay Saltwater (TBS) http://www.tbsaltwater.com/ When you order from TBS you get all kinds of hitch...

    Last night there was an explosion of this red/purple algae. It is long and stringy and is growing on the sand and rocks. Can some one tell me what it is and how do I get rid of it. I use only RO/DI water with 0 TDS. Thank-you very much. Joe 75 Gallon Tank 30 Gallon Sump Super Needle Wheeled...

    This all started with a 72 gal fish only bow front. Then we saw all the reef tanks set up at the fish stores and HAD to have one of those too. The first one was a 13 gal with PC's which was quickly followed by a 42 with T5's, which still wasn't big enough so we converted that one into a 180 with...

    So about two months ago, I had noticed my tigertail cucumber acting oddly (previous thread: http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111936) Basically, he started out being very reclusive, only coming out at night and sifting the sand only in a radius close enough to the rocks for him...

    I have read that cerith snails are good at digging through the substrate. Do any of you have them? If so, how much of the substrate do they turn over? Are we talking the top half inch or will they get down a couple of inches?
  9. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I am in the middle of planning my closed loop on a 75g and could use some advice. The pump I am looking at is either the Sequence Snapper or Dart. Which would be the better choice for the 75g? Also, how many, what size and where should the holes go for a closed loop in a 75g? Keep in mind my...

    I've had a blue linkia star for over a year in my tank. He's always done real well since I figured out to really maintain the salinity closely. That was the #1 issue. All of his little white spots went away and he was real healthy. He's always been shy and stayed in the rocks when the lights...

    http://www.ipsf.com/reefworms.html I thought I might diversify my tank some with some of the items sold there...is this just a waste of money? Is it REALLY a good idea to 'diversify'?

    Hope all are having a great Thanksgiving day with their families. Before I took off after a whole day yesterday with my five year old twins grandson and granddaughter I ran a quick check for selecting a number of possible chitons that I might have in my reef tanks as a part of a cleaning crew. I...

    I recently read somewhere that the optimum cleaning crew is 1 snail per gallon and 1 hermit per 2 gallons... what species do you recomend, and how much is not too much but efficient for a 14 gallon tank? I need a decent cleaning crew asap.... I have two snails but they seem to be doing more...

    I'm after fish/inverts that can "clean" my substrate bearing in mind that I'm in Australia and none of the stores have heard of bullet gobies / sand sifting stars you can't get and no one stocks macro algae. So I'm after basic easy to come by things which I can use to help keep the substrate...

    ..and the sealife was absolutely stunning!! Steve Weast posted some pics of his fantastic cold water tank a while back, and now I understand why he has such gorgeous specimens. I took these shots on and under the jetties around the San Juan islands and saw just about everything we have in our...

    I am wondering what good places there are to order fish as well as corals online. I have bought my last few fish from the same fish store and they seem to live about 30 days then die. I am getting really bumbed in the hobby now. I would really like to add some new things and money isn't going on...
  19. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    I am new to the hobby and I am trying to not add anything to my tank that I don't recognize. I recently bought a small piece of live rock with button polyps all over it. After observing it in my quarantine tank, I have noticed there are many other organisms living on this piece of real-estate...
