    I have a couple lettuce sea slugs in a nano tank and their favorite food is bryopsis algae - yes the dreaded nuisance algae! Bryopsis looks a look like small ferns growing in your tank. See attached pics from a great article on keeping slugs in reefkeeping dot com (I can't include the link...

    My tank has nothing in but live rock, live sand, and a clump of chaeto at the moment - it finished cycling a long while ago but I've not been able to get my RO setup installed to do a water change and get things ready for some livestock yet (ready now, going to set it going in the morning and do...

    Hi all, Feeding the fish tonight I noticed this creature on my front glass. It moves very fast so I wasn't sure if it is some sort of slug or snail but I removed it not knowing if it is safe or not. If anybody could help me out with identifying it would be great. Thanks

    Hey guys. Ive always been intrigued by nudibranchs and i would really love to keep one in my tank. People keep saying everywhere that they are "impossible to keep" but i beg to differ. I think keeping one in a aquarium is possible. I've been researching ones for sale and different species and im...

    Hi, I just started setting up a new tank last night. I went to a fish store and purchased live rock and water. Since my tank is only 5 gallons, to avoid having to buy more sand than I needed, the guy at the store sold me sand from one of the tanks already there. When I came home from work...

I only see them first thing in the morning and they are irritating the polyps. They have not opened for three days now. It...

    Hey there, I recently purchased a Tapetum anemone and on the rock he was on was this odd snail like creature. Not too sure what it is. Tonight he started squirting white fluid into the water which I assumed was sperm. Any thoughts? Is it good or bad? As I am new to this site I apologize if...

    I recently bought some Gracilaria algae and found this hitch-hiker in my tank the day after adding the algae. It does not appear to have any sort of shell although it looks like it in the picture. It has been in the tank for ~two weeks and crawls around at night most the time.

    I have something I can't find on the net, I don't even know what I would call it. It looks like a tiny coral with neon green tips walking on my live rock. It has several tips extending from its body, it is a bit elongated like a slug, he seems to have those tentacles on his head like a slug or...

    I've had this tank for about a year and a half and have spent many hours studying the rocks hoping for a hitchhiker. Finally, after all this time, I found one! Our heater malfunctioned and we managed to get the fish out of the 100F water while we bring the temp down with ice packs. I was shining...
