    I ordered some live-rock from Gulf-View that I am very satisfied with. The only problem is I think it has aiptasia or something that looks very close to it. I was thinking about getting peppermint shrimp, but I am worried because I have heard of them eating feather dusters and I have lots of...

    I've been watching this guy for a while and he's finally gotten big enough to be interesting. Seems to be a tube worm of sorts about 1/8" in diameter. It will spew a spider-eb-like substance into the water that normall sticks to the rock around it but will sometimes string out into the water...

    Has anyone had pesky trouble with lemon peel angelfish picking and nibbling on invertebrates? We just bought the lemon peel 2 weeks ago and have witnessed the bright fish nibbling and picking on the brittle stars (there are 2 in the tank), even to the point where the lemon peel has flipped over...

    Uh Oh, big brain coral took a spill last night on top of my large feather duster:eek: It seemed to knock the feathers and guts (very technical) out of the poor guy's tube. Should I leave the empty tube in the tank in hopes of some sort of re-generation, or pull it out? TIA

    I have set up a 10 gal tank with a bacpac skimmer & a regular 15 watt no bulb, & was wondering what good low light corals would go good? Not figuring on adding any chemicals, just changing the water at the rate of a gallon a week.?

    Hi all, Thought you might like to know how my tank is doing. I added about 1/3 mud/clay to my sand bed. I lost a couple of frags but believe this was due to burning from my light. I'm going to put in a diffuser of eggcrate where the light concentration is the greatest. Some things to note is...

    Hi all, I've read it's beneficial to have a dark refugium. I was going to get a small rubbermaid container in my sump and put some sand/rubble and some cut up pvc in it for sponges, filter feeders and anything else that likes the dark. Have any of you done this, how did you do it and what...

    I have a tank that is about 17 or 18 months old......I want to change the aquascaping around quite dramitically....but I hate to do it....I have such a population of tube worms, sponges, etc that are in the "dark" areas of the tank, I'm afraid that a major re-work will really upset things. But I...

    Hi, I know that this pic is not very good. I bought some live rock and these things were sticking out of it. At the LFS I thought that they were tube worms. But after getting them into my tank they look like acropora. One has a pulp extruded at the top. The lighting in the picture was...
