Me and my girl are looking to take a vacation near the end of summer/early fall... I was just wondering where in the Carribean is there good reef diving? I have never been and I would love to see a real coral reef.
While I am not ready to make a full fledged "Build" thread yet, I do want to get some suggestions going about what I should do for my 65g. I was planning on having a FOWLR, (and Inverts :D). The only things I KNOW I want are a small school of banghai cardinals and a coral-banded shrimp. Can...
Overnight this black spot appeared on my Leather Toadstool. I haven't a clue what happened. It's been thriving in my 100 gal tank for 3 months. I've read as many of the posts as I can find on toadstools and can't really pinpoint my trouble with the others. I suspect maybe parasites or worms or...
I was just reading about sexing cardinal fish and found out I have at least one male. The other two seem to be female. I have noticed one of the pajama cardinal fish I have has started to get a bulldog looking face. The other two seem the same as before. I read the male has the bulldog face and...

Thanks for any help in advance.
So, since I re-setup my aquarium everything is looking great and has colored up nicely.
However, after the hair algae outbreak from the past, I no longer have any coraline algae.
So, I wanted to see if any of you who have so much of the stuff that you're constantly having to scrape it off your...

My biggest concern are the tangs. Yes? No? Maybe?
I see a lot of people do it. However, a 90 gallon is still just a 4 foot tank.
I would love to have a blue tang and Powder Blue Tang.

3 Green Chromis (Chromis viridis)
1 Six Line Wrasse...

I purchased a new 20 gal. tank four years ago and had used it as a sump for three. After I took down my 75, I cleaned up the 20 and have been using it as a small display for the last year. I noticed recently that the silicone sealant has been coming off in 1/8" wide strips. Is this something...
