    Okay, so our female seahorse passed away and it's been two weeks now since we lost her :( (It wasn't due to water quality or anything of that nature; her head got stuck in the slits for the overflow and she wasn't able to get out. That problem has been corrected.) I was wondering if any of...

    Our Red Sea Sailfin tang has crossed over.... He was with us for several years, is in my avatar, and was a lovely fish in every respect. For a few weeks he'd been hanging around behind the rocks, never swimming in front, we didn't see him eat, but he didn't look thin. He looked fine, but we...

    I think I am going to add a cucumber to help keep my sand bed a little cleaner. Is there any advantage between a tiger cucumber or a regular black one? I am not worried about one being more difficult than the other unless one is impossible to keep.

    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...
