    Does anyone who is running bb have a mandarin? I have been bb for a little over a month and still am getting used to it. I am worried that without any sand in my display or refugium that I might not have enough pods for him to eat. I don't have a ton of rock either which is great for my flow...

    I was up in the middle of the night looking at my 100g tank and saw an amazing number of copepods. I never see them during the day of course. Is there such a thing as too many? What are some really good copepod eating fish that are reef safe and non-aggressive? Currently stocked with: 1 yellow...

    I just found out I will be leaving town, and have to sell off all my reef stuff. I have 3 aquaria. I have not had a lot of time to keep up with the cosmetic appearance of these tanks lately, with the result that there is a moderate bubble algae problem in one. Otherwise everything is healthy...
