Would this do okay and be effective in...

    Let me start by apologizing for a long thread. It's my first one, and I know there's a lot more searching I could do on the web, but my head has started to hurt from it, and I'm starting to confuse things that I've read from one place to another, so I'm hoping to get a little more advice...

    OK, we made an inventory of what we have in the goody closet for raffles, and they are taking up WAY TOO MUCH ROOM in my workshop. Some of these items will be raffled off at every event and meeting during the rest of the year, and I will determine how much I bring by how many people are signed...

    I am looking into buying both a filter and a skimmer for my soon to be operational 55 gal FOWLR tank. I am looking for advice on different filters. Right now, I am planning on getting an Emperor 400 filter, but I would like everyone's thoughts on it. I am also looking at Hagen Aquaclear and...

    I don't know if anyone saw CBS's The Early Show special on setting up a SW aquarium for Nemo, but aparently it was pretty bad. A TETRA executive "expert" came on and dumped a blue tang, 2 clowns, 2 seahorses and a brittle star into a 5 gallon mini-bow. She said that all that was needed was the...

    I came home tonight to see my bicolor angel covered with white spots. The other fish look fine, for now. I have only 1 tank set up right now, and don't have much extra water laying around. Anything you can suggest I do? It is in a 46 gallon reef with 3 other fish, and they seem to be doing...
