  1. Reef Fish
    I know from past experience that Yellow Tangs are aggressive and territorial. But I'd read on more than one occasion (and NOT in Reader's Digest) that if you put Yellow Tangs in a tank in odd numbers, say 3 or 5, they will school. I have a 180 gallong FOWLR. For the first 4 or 5 days the tangs...

    So I have a pink stylophora that has been attacked by a nasty batch of caulerpa. Sucks right.. So I looked on SCCAT for suggestions on how to remove this stuff from my tank. Well I read on the site to freeze the seaweed and throw it in the trash after. Well I dont think my pink stylophora will...

    Okay.....So she wasn't really eaten alive.;) I just think it's cool how she can completely bury herself inside the mouth of the anemone with no harm. She's at least 4.5 inches, if not 5.

    I previously owned freshwater tanks, but now want to do a saltwater reef tank with a few inverts and fish. I have no equipment. I initially thought about getting a 55gal tank. I know I will need all the fixins to start but have not priced the whole lot. I have found someone who is selling a...

    I've been noticing prices of SW fish going up and up over the last 6 months. I asked a couple of LFS owners and they blame trasportation costs from high gas prices. Wondering if you are seeing big jumps in prices? Here in Cincinnati OH, this is what I've been seeing lately among 5+ LFS...

    Well, who am I kidding? It was bound to happen so why resist? Over the last few months the wife and I have talked about what would be my summer project this year since she knows that I HAVE to have something to occupy my time otherwise insanity sets in. I told her that my plan was to teach a...
