    Two questions really 1) when is the best time of the week to visit that pet place? I was surprised when I went to Exotic Aquatics(my favorite store so far in my visits) that the weekends seemed to be the better time. it's nto been as crowded,and I got a lot more help than I had during the week...

    I had bought a frag of pulsing xenia and I thought the decorator crab got it, so I removed him and got another frag and again gone in a day. I have three damsels, a firefish, clown, two fire shrimp, three peppermint shrimp and some hermits and snails. I got excited last night as the remains of...

    I was wondering about my six-line and future problems. ive had him for about 7 months now and I read in quite a few places that six-lines often go bad as they gat larger, attacking both fish and inverts. However i do not know if this is the vast majority of six-lines or not (really whether...

    Hi, We started with 5 chromises and 2 clowns, but, as fish will die, are left with one clown (false perc) and two chromises. We're little gun shy now to add more fish, but will plan to go ahead. Any recommendations? Another clown? Is just one OK? He seems quite happy and he and the two chromises...

    Do any of you feed your the frozen food made by Sallys? I got a saltwater multipack, frozen brine shripm and some pink reef plankton. My question is how much and how do you all feed when you feed you tanks? Do you just drop a cube in or do you break it apart ...?? Also, what frequency do you...

    Hey guys, I know this is sort of a newbie question, but I have a HUGE hair algae problem that I can't seem to get rid of. My lights aren't that old (just a couple of months) and I have lots of snails and even 2 mythrix crabs, many hermits of various types, 2 feather dusters, finger coral, a...

    Just wondering if anyone plans on ordering any inverts soon? If not I may put together an order. Where is the best place? I need some peppermint shrimp, snails and a few hermits. If

    So what's the truth, besides that each one is different, LOL!! I bought 6 to get rid of the aptasia in my 125, they did a great job. Then, within two days i noticed my mandarin had a large hole in him and saw the pepps prying him open(cause of death or already dead?), and then my brittle star...

    Hi All Who is killing my shrimp. I had three cleaners and five peppermint shrimp. The first cleaner shrimp was found dead at the filter intake. Since it did not look too munched on I did not think too much of it. Then the next day another cleaner shrimp was dead, only all I could find is the...

    I have one peppermint shrimp which is eating my ricordias. What the heck is he thinking? Well, I had these three ricordia polyps in my tank in one little cove and the shrimp decided he wanted to live in that cove so he has been picking on the ricordias. I moved two of them, got them attached...

    Well I thought all was good with my new setup. I started a 170 gallon tank up in November and was having great success until now. I seem to be losing fish, blue/red legged hermits and some snails. I tested my water last night and everthing seems in line. The fish have been feeding well and...

    Well, walling in our aptaisia has resulted in a bunch of babies popping out all over the rock. They are tiny, but I'm starting to get bit worried that they could overrun the tank. Does anyone have any peppermint shrimp babies for sale? Or will those later chomp on zoos in your experience? Or...

    Thanks to all the folks who have helped identify my Aiptasia (from my very first post to TRT). I have just done 'the business' with a syringe full of Calk into/onto the aiptasia..... my next questions are: How long does it take to kill them off? Will I need to treat them again or it this a one...

    Hello, Recently I have been noticing more stingers in my 125 gal. reef tank. Was wondering the best way to get rid of these? Since early this summer when our Copperband butterfly died - I have been seeing the stingers multiply. Thanks Chris

    Well, I have had it with these freakin aiptasia. I have gotten rid of them before, but these obviously evolved when the tank got upgraded, and now they are out of hand. So I put in a large order (6) peppermint shrimp, they went in the tank friday. Not being one to wait around, promptly...
