    I was wondering. Do I feed once a day or twice? I am currently using these little cubed containers of a shrimp. I'm feeding 3 Chromis and 2 Hermit crads. All are pretty small.

    I am using the treatment listed here: For those that have done this, is 4 to 6 weeks long enough to allow the ich to die off in the main tank or should I go longer. I do not want a re-occurance and it took four long days to...

    I noticed my Purple Tang having some very subtle spots on him. Anyone know what this is or what it will develop into. I don't think he had them just the other day. He's behaviour hasn't changed, still eats and seems all normal. I did a water change so far and even b4 that the water params were...

    Today as I was cleaning my sandbed I noticed many little bugs (which i took to be copepods) and worms lving in the sandbed. Does this mean that I know have live sand because these critters are everywhere and if so should i disturb the sandbed if its only a very shallow one? I'd also like to know...
