    Hello everyone! I received my bi-monthly live food shipment in the mail and to my surprise they had sent me a bunch of stuff I did not order. They told me to keep it free of charge as it was their error so I now have a frag with like 10 zoas, a purple whip, 6 peppermint shrimps and several...

    In a few months I plan on having fish in my 30 gallon tank, which will eventually house mushroom corals, a green bubble tip anemone, two ocellaris clownfish, a royal gramma, and a few inverts. I also plan on buying a yellow watchman goby and a tiger pistol shrimp, which will hopefully live...

    I just put these guy in my tank yesterday. They loved each other and immediately bonded. They built a tunnel under the rock and the YWG had his head out of the hole for the past 24 hours. I went to go check on them and they are both gone no signs of them anywhere. The opening to the tunnel...

    This morning my tiger and pistol shrimp pair were doing great. They came out together, the shrimp looked normal and was tidying up the place from there sleep that night. However, he went inside his cave around mid day, and hasnt come out since. And now my YWG won't go to sleep or enter his cave...

    Well as the title says, I picked up an very small tiger pistol shrimp last night and during the transfer into the tank his larger claw seems to have broken off. He seems to be doing fine without it. Will this grow back and if so how long am I looking at? thanks

    Well I got a 4 gallon Finnex nano tank for Father's Day. It came with a HOB filter ~30GPH, and 18W 50/50 PC bulb. It's at my office at work so I have something to look at during the day. I filled up with salt water this morning and got everything wired. There's also a 25 watt heater in...

    This weekend I added twenty turbo snails to my tank. I dropped one in at a time and each one ended upside down. How in the world can they survive in nature?

    So in my reef, I have a percula clown, yellow watchman goby, and a green chromis. I also purchased a tiger pistol shrimp thinking it would pair with my watchman. Guess what...it did't. Now after a month of having it, it paired with the green chromis. I also have a bulb tip anemone for the clown...
