    I have a 26 gallon bowfront aquarium. I currently have no cuc! I used to have a peppermint shrimp and a few hermit crabs but these have slowly died. I want to get a fresh start at my cuc. So, what should I have? Could I do a serpent or brittle star? Thanks

    This evening, after the lights went out, I found over a dozen tiny sea stars in my 20 gallon reef tank. The were 1/4-1/2" in diameter. There have not been any sea stars in that tank for well over 6 months and then only a single one. To make this tank I broke down a larger tank into 2 smaller...

    Went home for lunch and saw a tiny sea star up at the water line. At first, I was excited that there was an inhabitant I hadn't added or seen before...but after looking around I see that it is probably an Asterina! I had to come back to work and didn't remove it. I've been reading that some can...

    Ok last night all 3 of my brittle stars were just fine and ate small peice of shrimp. I did notice that one of the stars had lost part of it's leg.

    Hi Guys and Gurls, I am in dire need of a replacement 3200 GPH Dolphin (Ampmaster) marine pump if anyone has one or knows of one locally (upstate SC) that I can buy (even retail at this point, $$$, the days will make a difference). If I cannot find one by Saturday evening, I guess I will order...

    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...

    Ok, this is weird, but one of my red stars is inside my flame scallop. His legs are sticking out. Do you think he just went in there on his own, and he will come out, or would a flame scallop eat a star? The star is still alive as the leg sticking out is moving, but I am afraid if I touch the...

    Liveaquaria (Dr Foster Smith) has a good deal on LR now. $99 for 45lbs. This seems like a good deal. Has anyone ordered LR from them? They state that they inspect the rock. I want to make sure I get good LR for my rebuild. I don't wanted infested/loaded rock. Is there a better place to...
