    Ok, I know the pictures are not very good. But they are of a (some kind of bristle worm / star) , and the other one is some kind of snail?? It looks like a single shell from a bi-valve, with a snail underneath it. It moves around the tank quite a bit. Is it possible to tell if they are good...

    I'm thinking about getting 1 or 2 of these to decimate the exploding population of tiny stars that seem to be taking my tank over slowly. I've heard they will go after any size starfish, but that is the only thing they eat. I don't want to get something to let them slowly starve to death in my...

    My tank is one year old and is going along fairly good, but it’s not the way it was. Ok that doesn't make a lot of sense and I'll try to clarify. People who visit, say that the tank looks great but it is not, in my opinion, as good as it was 4-5 months ago. I just know because of so many hours...

    I have Carib Sea crushed coral for a substrate now, would I be better with sand? Should I remove the crushed coral or add sand to it? I vaccum my substrate when I do a weekly water change, I know it removes the detris, but doens't remove the living stuff too? Should I vaccum less frequently...
