    <b>I have a puzzling question (for me at least), but first a story :p</b> A couple years ago, we added a Wheeler's Watchman goby to our tank. He had survived shipping from LA and no acclimation at all (just starting out!), as well as a velvet outbreak, which taught me the valuable lesson to...

    Hi there folks, I recently just finished cycling my 100 gal tank, but somehow I've been seeing like 3 gorilla crabs dead on my substrate. I read on the forum how to capture them by using the squid in a bottle trap, can anyone tell me how to do it? or is it as simple as it said? put squid in a...

    Tonight is the night! I bought a trap and I am going to attempt to catch the purple (spiny?) lobster that has been terrorizing my tank for years. I've had enough. It's gotten 4 or 5 fish and many of my cleaners. With the absence of the wrasse's (one of them was a gorgeous Dragon Wrasse) and...

    I have a large Brittle Star that has relocated between the two walls of my overflow that are separated about 3/4". He has been in there for ~6 months. There is a possibility that I might have to move my tank in the next few months and was wondering if there was a way to trap and remove this...

    My lemon peel has ticked me off for the last time today. He nips at my clam, BTA, torch coral, and just killed my frogspawn. The mentioned animals are starting to stress and I am sure they will be dead within 2 months if something isn't done. He is a beautiful fish with great colors and is...

    My bf's tank has at least Eunicid worms residing in the rockwork. We've only seen about 2 inches of one and close to 8 inches of the other. They are segmented, def not typical bristle worms, they have the antennae and mean jaws I've seen/read about online. He's left the worms alone since the...

    So, here is my dilemma. I have two damsels which I HATE and want out of my tank. I don't want to rip everything apart to get at them though. Do acrylic traps work for small damsels? If so, does anyone have one that I could borrow? Also, I will most likely have 2 true percs for sale.....I...

    I'm struggling with catching a tri-color anthias out of my 150. He is bullying my trio of Bartlett's so he has to go. I had two of them in the tank and managed to catch one already. The remaining one seems very aware that I'm trying to catch him. Acrylic trap, nets and small hooks have not...
