    good for 55 gal

    The sailfin tang is way too large for that tank, and even if you buy it small, it WILL grow and FAST!!!!! NO TANGS! It's just not fair to the fish!

    Damsel !

    The fishing method is what I'm doing as we speak (well not as we speak on this post)! And let me tell you my yellowtail is very smart and has torn of the bait, picked at the bait but hasn't swallowed the bait (small piece of grass shrimp). So I'm feeling like this will never happen. and I also...

    16 gallon fish list?

    Sand sifting gody might be another option. That way they say on the sand and clean your substate, and at the same time are giving you that open area in your tank for the clowns to freely swim!

    16 gallon fish list?

    Instead of a clown goby what about a firefish? The clowns in that size tank would be great additions to a tank that size. And what ever fish you decide to go with, make sure they don't get tempted to have one of those sexy shrimp as a snack!

    angels and corals

    One should have done research! Any site or online dealer would have clearly stated the tank size for those fish and what they require. So there is no excuse for someone saying they disn't know!!!!!!!! RETURN THOSE ANGELFISH TO THE PLACE YOU GOT THEM FROM!!!!!! This is not everyone being...

    Would you put a Xenia in your tank?

    I hate this stuff!!!! It's a pretty coral, but not worth the hassle of trimming and keeping it from spreading. And once you cut it back, if you don't get every piece out, it will grow back!

    Ripped my Xenia

    Xenia is a coral that, to me, is not capable to die! I put some xenia in my tank, while still a nooby, didn't know it would spread like a weed, but it did. I moved it over a little away from the rocks but it still managed to spread to the next rock. Well I had it with this stuff, so I got a...

    Sun Coral

    They love Cyclop-Eez (sp?). The ones I've had in the past opened up fully once I fed them this! I no longer have sun polyps b/c they take up some much time with feeding them. I could never remember to target feed them. Also another word of advice- I know some people put there's in full light...

    Longnose Hawkfish Compatability?

    I'd like to know if it is reef safe? I've heard they can eat small shrimp, but what exactly is small- cleaner shrimp? Fire shrimp? Peppermint shrimp? Also will they develop an the taste for corals? I would not think your fish being eaten, wouldn't be a problem. The ones I've seen all seem to...
