    I got a Harlequin Shrimp 4 days ago and I was told that it was eating Astrenias at my LFS. I have a Chocolate Chip starfish in there for it but it doesn't seem to care. The starfish is the biggest CC I have ever seen probably 6-7 inches across and the shrimp is probably .75 inches. So is the...

    Hi, I'm just curious if it's okay to use a frozen raw (peeled) shrimp to get the cycle started in my new tank. I have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and 0 nitrates and I'm on day 2 with 25 lbs of live rock, and 40lbs of live sand in a 60 gal tank. Thanks so much!

    I found this when I moved some of my live rock. Is it ok to put it back in the tank? Or is it bad? It moves like a shrimp and worm if that makes sense, almost on its side when I'm watching it. Did not float around the tank when it first came out. It stayed near the sand bottom.

    Wow I have been missing for soooo long! I really need to get reacquainted with the forum again. I think it has been since April that I have been here. Work and life in general has been so crazy and busy for me. A good and wonderful crazy and busy, but still crazy none the less. So a great big...

    I want to add a Vrolik's Wrasse to my 70 Gallon tank, but I also want to add a shrimp/goby pair. Would there be complication from the wrasse borrowing in the sand and the shrimp's tunnels? Or would the wrasse just try to eat the shrimp? I know that the wrasse may go after my hermit crabs and...
  11. Anemones
    I have an aneomone tank with a couple bubble tips, a Percula clown, and a linkia starfish. I'd like to put a shrimp in as well. I had peppermints and a pistol in before but a brittle star that I recently got rid of ate almost everything but the anemones and the clown. Any fun shrimp that will...

    Peppermints harassing bubble tips - fact or fiction? I got a nice little bubble tip about a month ago. Been looking good - strong color, hasn't moved at all, eats, mouth is tightly closed all the time. I came home at lunch today to find him balled up. If he were bigger I would've wondered if...

    Hey guys...just checking in with you. New tank is up and running and is beautiful. I have a minor bacterial bloom now and I'm changing tons of water to alleviate this. But my main problem is, I have put in 3-4 shrimp over the last couple weeks and they keep dying. They acclimate fine, as...

    I haven't a clue as to what I am doing. I'm so overwhelmed. I was given a percnon gibbesi (sally light foot). I have her and a neon blue goby in a ten gallon for now. Please, what do I do when the tank starts to cycle? I am starting a 20 gallon for them. I want to eventually add a feather...

    I've had this mantis shrimp since January but was never able to ID it. The LFS didn't know either, in fact they only stocked it because they knew I would probably buy it. It lives in the sump and has the "club" raptorial appendages which sometimes wake me up at night when it punches the rocks...
