    Now while in selecting of which Anthias species I feel better for either 180 or 240 due to the fish maximum growth. And while listing these I began thinking that I will forget on the idea of either a dwarf or middle size growing angelfish due to tank space and also that most any angel I can...

    I have a Yellow Mimic Tang in my tank. last night I got a gold stripe maroon and a Bubble Tip anemone. Every time a give the BTA some krill the mimic swims over and takes it right out of the BTA's tenticals. What do I do now? the BTA will starve. Not to mention the Maroon refuses to go near it.

    I have had a Yellow Mimic in my tank now for about 2 weeks. I notice that from time to time it gets dark colored. It is getting plenty to eat and the water is very stable. Is this common for the Mimic? There is plenty of growth on the rock for it to eat and it is eating flakes as well. It won't...

Last summer I set up a 55gal, since then I have lost a few fish because the biggest fish gets too agressive, I had 4 green chromiss and the biggest guy started killing the smallest one until...

    In January last year, I set up my 120-gallon reef tank from scratch using some of the standard recommended procedures for setting up bare-bottom tanks. This included things like cooking the rock, getting an oversized skimmer, using eductors on the sump return lines and using cuttingboard to...

    This is a topic I would like to discuss. What are your thoughts on fish in a BB tank? Before you answer that, ask yourself this, "Why do I have a BB tank?" If the answer is for algae control or such, have you considered the kinds of fish you keep? I went BB for three reasons: 1. Hair algae was...
