    I got some new frags in a couple of months ago, one of which was a pretty nice Ricordea Mushroom. After a week-long light acclimation on my frag rack I went to move the frags to different locations in the tank for another week of acclimation to flow and light to find the best places for each...

    So, not sure what on earth is going on with these guys. Are they "natural enemies"? I couldn't tell if the urchin stuck the hermit crab on him as decoration, or if the hermit crab was trying to attack the urchin...? The urchin looked like it was fleeing and the hermit crab was dangling off of...

    G'dafternoon, A brief inquiry as to whether you feel blue tuxedo urchins are compatible with chocolate chip stars? The star has a proven record of tracking and capturing/eating snails, as well as a much smaller red fromia (that was a sad day). It is fed meats on a semi-regular basis and can...

    I have had a Tuxedo Urchin for about a month+ now and Just this past week it stopped moving as much and this morning it has lost all his spines. They are just in a pile all around him. Is he dead, should I pull it out. Or do they shed the spines. I had a big algae problem, that's why I got...

    Apparently my urchins like my zoas as much as i do, and who knew bubble algae could look so fashionable! Here is contestant #1 Sporting a nice cluster of red-skirted, blue center zoanthids and a stunning bit of halimeda... <img...

    Just got my order in and acclimated everyone and about 20 minutes after tucking in the Tuxedo Urchins, i noticed one was smoking. Now i know this is usually a twitterpating thing, but usually critters only do such activity when they are happy... this shipment was a day late and though well...

    Like when you order one online....about what size might i end up with? Does it vary widely? I understand they get to about 3" or so... but i will need one at least plastic bottle cap size or Todd will make lunch of him (or at least try), and i don't need it to be ginormous. Think one is...

    Alright so I should lay out what we got instead of just harassing people. There's the 75 gallon, about 15g sump. Well, it's not really a sump I guess, just a fuge with a place to put the skimmer. The 75 has about 100 lbs of LR (about...), corner drilled to the under stand fuge. The fuge is...

    So I am excited with this Nano Tank, but given the small space inside my options for cleaning the front round corners are limited (8 Gallons isn't much room for rock AND hands). The tiny mag-float doesn't get the job done around the corners and I have cleanup crew, but I am getting the harder...
