    STN? Bleaching? What is it, what do I do?

Also, how close is it too the softies? Sps and softies do not usually mix in close proximity. Just a...

    F/S Green carpet anemone in WI

    The anemone I have, ate a 5 inch Purple Tang, a 6 inch Hippo tang, a 2inch hippo tang, and a few damsels. So basically, if it can close up around it, it will eat the fish. In the reply from Jimmy G, I had to laugh, they can be the devil! They do limit what you can have in the tank, but they are...

    live rock curing question

    I would suggest putting a powerhead in, to increase circulation. Air bubblers will give some circulation, but a powerhead would be better.

    Ushio vs. XM

    F/S Green carpet anemone in WI

    I am looking to sell or trade a green carpet anemone. It is a healthy 16 inches across. It would be a good addition to a species tank. It is hosted by a maroon clown that I would be willing to part with also. I have had it for more then 3 years and it is very healthy, but it is limiting me to...

    Very OT! Anyone know about califlower ear?

    Daniel, You got that right! High school wrestling was a blast. Now that I am old, I am down to coaching little kids. Not as fun, but still a good time. Had cauliflower ear a couple times. Have it lanced and wear head gear, especially at practice. I didn't take anytime off when I got it and my...

    How many MH for 125 Tank

    Like I said before, what are you going to put in the tank? If it is going to be a reef, IMO, I would get the mhs w/ vho actinics. Otherwise you will be upgrading later.
