    I just bought several wonderful new starfish and tank cleaners and one of my beautiful new sea cucumbers had the good sense to get stung to death by my anemone. Luckily, I have a 75 gallon hex tall aquarium and he's 30" down. And on top of the cucumber is about 70 lbs of live rock. The live...

    Does anyone know any tank dwellers that are good at eating cyanobacteria? I am having a pretty good outbreak of red cyano right now and water changes seem not to be doing the trick. I know that this is part of the new tank period on my 180 but it is starting to get out of control. I'm not sure...

    Ive got southdown in my tank and was wondering if I should try to look into getting something to stir up my sb. I used to have a larger colony of amphipods when I had the larger grained sand/crushed coral but i dont see as much anymore. I dont think they can sift through the fine stuff either so...

    We are downsizing from two tanks to one (will put the 125 FO/LR up sor sale) This was the perfect time to finally get new carpet and hardwood floors... so that is happening and finished in the living room where the reef once was and soon will be again. We've used the 125 tank, empty, to fill...
  17. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    We are re-setting up our 8-yr-old reef this week... as a barebottom tank... will our sea cucumber need to be re-homed since he'll no longer have sand to crawl around in? Will he find enough to eat? Thanks~:)

    The tank in the middle will have clowns and anemones. I need to know what would be the best. I want to get white striped maroons but I don't know if they go in the giant carpets. I want to get 2 of them and 2 sets of different species of clowns at same time. Maroons are my favorite but I am not...
