    Stocking a 29 gallon biocube???

    My absolute favorite fish was a sixline wrasse. They have a ton of personality and are incredibly active. Mine always cruised back and fourth around the live rock and was very playful.

    Hermits or No Hermits?

    I LOVE my hermits (blue legs), they are fantastic cleaners, and have great personality... I think you said a 125? I would say you could easily do between 30-50 without a problem.

    Lighting question

    I have been using glass over my tank, and it doesn't cut down on the lighting to terribly much if you wash it off every week when you do a water change. One advantage to glass is it cuts down on the salt creep or spray that egg crate wouldn't catch

    Hey guys, Glad i found this thread! My 130 PC just stopped working, The moonlights still work, and so do the fans, but both lights are out... I checked the bulbs, and its not them. Is this the ballast then? Is there a fuse that could have gone? I am certainly not an electrician, but I am...

    Best interesting fishes for a 20 gal??

    I can't say enough about my Sixline Wrasse, COOLEST FISH EVER!! I absolutely LOVE him. The Bicolor Blennie is good too, mine was a little agressive at first, but it has a ton of personality!
