    Dang it I missed the rebuild off by five days! I am stuck in the vet hospital most days and can't check this board all the time and this time it cost me. Oh well. I'm still going to have a rebuild thread going, but I won't be included in the contest. I'm always a day late and a dollar short. I...

    I have to get rid of this by this week end as the construction on my house is going to start. Someone backed out of the deal at the last minute. I am hoping to have someone take it all at once as I am having new floors put in and have to tear it down for several weeks. I have 3 250w MH lights...

    I have a hippo tang that I've had in my 55 gal for several years. He's always been healthy and a great eater. Over the last two weeks he has suddenly started to look very skinny and you can see his ribs. He still eats great. Any ideas? The only introductions were last fall, and all doing...

    Hey All....... My Yellow Eyed Tang poops about every 10 to 15 minutes. Now granted, since I haven't had any fish in my tank for about 5 months, there is an abundant food supply which he is obviously taking advantage. I know fish will eat 24X7 given the opportunity but, I wasn't sure they...

    Hey All...... after 4 months of being fishless, I went to the LFS yesterday and stocked up. As some of you may recall, I've been unable to keep a fish alive past about 5 weeks. The LFS suggested I may have some type of internal parasite that keeps killing them. He suggested I let the tank...

    Well, as some of you may remember, I lost my Sailfin about 5 weeks ago. Now my Diamond Goby has died tonight and the Yellow Eyed Tang I bought to replace the Sailfin looks like he won't see the light of day. The Goby has been looking great everyday, filtering the Aragonite like a fiend. The...

    that is the question...... I'm trying to decide what type of final fish I'll add to my 75. I've got a diamond goby, and a yellow eyed tang so far. I want to add a clown but am not sure how he will get along with the other folks. I've got a very large Youngs coral which I suspect the clown...
