    Owner of LFS tells me sandsifting stars are fine for DSB. I've read that they are harmful. He tells me not to believe everything I read. I tell him I read it online. He tells me not to believe everything I read online. Do I trust his word or stop patronizing his establishment?

    I aquired a Tiger Tail cuke about a month ago. I think it was on the sand bed all of 5 minutes before heading to the rocks. For the last 2 weeks, it's been hanging around by one of the powerheads (intake covered, of course!)on the glass in the upper corner of the tank. Is this normal? Should I...

    Our Cucumber is doing something very strange. It has climbed to the top of the LR and extended himself straight up. He has his mouth feelers retracted, but there is a bump on the top of his head, (if you can call it that). It is leaking a stream of white goo into the column. I would have...

    I have a standard 135 gallon. I get a bunch of detrious in my low-flow areas and behind the rocks. My flame angel likes to 'fluff' the sand bed and make a cloud of junk and pick out the good stuff to munch on. I have about about 30 nass snails, 10 astrea, and a large serpant star. I know I need...

    My wife just called me into the livingroom because the whole system just got real cloudy. I think one of my Sea Cucumbers either bit the dust or released something. They are the "atlantic" cucumbers (cat turd?) variety. They are supposed to be non-toxic. I found one of the 2 I keep in the...

    :( About 2 weeks ago I lost my entire fish population to a suspect sea cucumber. I think it died and my fishes consumed it, and were lying everywhere motionless when I got home. I only found pieces of white flesh floating about it the tank and assumed it must have been the cuke,since all the...

    OK...I need some sand sifters for my deep sand bed. Any suggestions. I saw some very cool pink cucumbers but i heard that when they die they give off a toxin that kills every thing. What are your guys thoughts on stars, nudibranchs, worms etc.... What has worked well for you and what should i...

    I set up my 100 gallon tank in July 1999. In the beginning, i was highly uneducated about cost and the high propensity for problems. Over these 3 years, i have accumulated the following hardware, usually piece by piece, trying to solve the 8 billion problems i have encountered. I believe i am...

    Hi All! I just got done looking in my tank with the flashlight and had not seen the tiger tail cucumber for awhile and almost dropped the flashlight on the floor when I noticed the cucumber on my large piece of LR way at the top underneath my golden gorgonian! Is this normal behavior...

    Well my livestock is all in the tank and the conch took off fast and the tiger tail cucumber is pretty much in the same place but alive and the copperband butterfly is quite skiddish but has made a few appearances and should settle down in a few days! Here is a bad pic of him underneath my...

    Hello all! Well have a Flying Fish Express Order coming this morning! Drew seemed to like this place so thought I would give it a try. As you all know I have a aiptasia problem and kalk injections did not do the trick so desperate measures call for the "Copperband Butterfly" and I...
