    I bought some algae/ seaweed for my tang as I've always seen them eat that in videos and the store. Well I've had the seaweed and algae out for it and it won't touch it. But I fed reef plankton and it ate it

    Good day!<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> I have acquired an urchin (either a purple or short spin) to save him from death from another reefer who couldn't care for him (was about to put it into a freezer). So my tank is pretty new...

    I got a one-spot foxface 4 weeks ago, first fish for the 180G tank, he's healthy but surprisingly avoids and doesn't go for nori. I tried once a week after adding him and again last night but he doesn't seem to care for it. There is plenty for him to graze on and the only other fish i have in is...

    I've been trying to identify this wild seaweed or plant for the past day and I can't find any solid information on it. I pulled it in out of the Chesapeake bay yesterday and pretty much just want to know what it is and if it is safe or not to throw in my refugium. Thanks for any insight.

    Nothing amazing, and I'm sure many of you have seen this, but I thought I'd share yet another helpful trait of the cleaner shrimp. As soon as I clip some seaweed down in the tank he is all over it. Frantically ripping away as much as he can (I swear he is by far the best fed critter in my tank...

    Hey all - Two questions. I got a kole tang and a yellow tang Saturday for a mature almost 2 year old 75 gallon peaceful tank (cept for my cranky pants clown but he's only cranky if your near his nem). Water parameters are 0 on the nitrogen cycle, 1.023SG, pH 8.3. The kole tang has some...

    I've never been a wasteful person. I don't like throwing away money. I bought a package of Ocean Nutrition Marine Algae Selects in Red Seaweed. I went through, maybe two sheets over several weeks - trying to get my fish to eat their veggies. But they won't touch it. I've clipped it in the...

    hi TRF! I got this caulerpa prolifera(i think) from my LFS about 2 weeks ago and lately its been turning into this white/clearish appearance. I thought it wasn't getting enough light or nutrients so after doing some research I found out that it might be going 'sexual'. Has this ever been a...

My concern now is, i want to ask if anyone can help me on how to set-up seawater aquarium to culture or incubate padina and gracilaria sp. . I need to incubate seaweed for about 3-4...

    I thought it would be good for my yellow tang and my wrassie to get some seaweed in them, so I went and bought a clip and some green seaweed. I put it in the tank this morning, and it seems like they are afraid of it. Arent they supposed to love it? They were eating brine shrimp cubes just...

    O.K so as you can see I have waited too long to post this, is this kelp in my tank? I am going to start pulling it off the rock tomorrow. I have also noticed small fuzzy brown balls growing on my rocks, is this a form of brown algae, thank for any help

    For a few weeks now I have been using both the brown and the green seaweed by H2O life. Although my rabbitfish, eyelash blennie, and kole tang will all eat them both; they seem to LOVE the brown a lot more than the green. This not a problem, but I was just wondering if anyone knows why this may...

    So for years I've been buying 'expensive' red, brown, or green seaweed (ocean nutrition, julian sprung/sea veggies, etc.) and have heard that the stuff you can buy in the supermarket for hand-rolling your own sushi is the same. Well I was just in my local Hy-Vee and bought some green dried...
