    I'm in dire need of some snails and I want to try some Trochus this time. They're hard to come by locally so I'm going to order them online. Anyone interested in going in on the order to spread out the shipping costs? I'm probably going to get about 50.

    I got home from work today and saw this: I posted these images to remind people how dangerous crabs (even cute little hermit crabs) can be. If you see one of your hermits have gotten a little too large, toss him in the sump or give/trade him to the LFS. This one was quite large as...

    Does anyone know if any of the lfs in jax have or will have any banded/blackfooted trochus, zebra hermits, electric blue hermits, or super tonga nassarius snails? I may be looking to pick up a few of each on my trip to jax for the meeting.

    Well, last time I used astrea, mexican turbos, nassarius vibex, illynassa obsoleta, blue leg hermits and scarlet hermits. The whole atlantic inverts in a tank packed with pacific corals. This time I am leaning towards a south pacific only tank. Kind of silly I know. The pacific is a Huge area...

    Since I was a small child, I have always had pets. Whether it was a dog, stray cat, baby squirl, injured bird, lizard, turtle. snake, aquarium, or just about any animal that I could keep. I have also had an aquarium set up constantly since I was 4 years old. Definately not going to share how...

    If it's not too late, I'm hoping to enter. I just got a job in the aquarium industry, and everyone in the office has a nano on their desk so I figured I had to join. What I'm thinking of doing is a custom rimless aquarium around 15 gallons with a sump area able to accomodate an old prizm...

    Sorry to all you hard core 20L supporters, but I am switching to a 10 gal for now. As my 20 is still a sump. I will be redoing my entry from last year (10 Gal Frag Tank), as a minimalist styled tank including rock work, equipment, livestock, and cost. This will be my first bare bottom tank so Im...

    I have a bristle worm trap in my tank and after the lights had been off for a while I decided to take a look and see if I had had any luck getting rid of some of them, any way when I turned on the light I saw a bristle worm that appeared to be suspended in mid air! Upon futher inspection I saw...

    My 125 reef system has begun to experience excess algae growth. My live rock seems to stay pretty clear due to the (4) red mithrax crabs and yellow tang that occasionally picks. The surface of the gravel is where most of this growth is occurring. I have added (2) small queen conchs in an effort...

    Well all I can say is LR cooking is a joke and a complete waste of time and money wasted on Salt. I cooked my rock to rid the LR of built up nutrients and etc to stop fueling a bad hair algae problem. The tank was doing OK for 8 months. Bi-weekly water changes, siphoning the bottom and LR...
