    Naso tang turned black

    Hi, I just introduced my naso to the main aquarium after 4 weeks in isolation. He does change color due to stress, so when they feel comfortable mine anyways turns back to grey, the main body that is. When I was acclimating him, I am sure he was nervous as I moved him into a container and he...

    Fish selection suggestions

    I have a queen angel and 2 moony angels, dragonet, clown, gobie, psuedo chromis and just introduced a Naso tang. The only fish which gave me an issue was the psuedo chromis being agressive. After adding the tang, the queen accepted that fish with no hostility, but instead with a fin wave and...

    Sugar dosing experience

The only side affect I witnessed was a stringy slime hanging off the returns when I increased the dose, then afterwards it stopped as I speculate it was excess...

    Whats going on with my anemone?? HELP ASAP

    Tank cycle

    I agree no water change as you want those bacteria to keep building, I never do water changes as it is too much work and costs to much money. The only water change I perform is in the isolation tank...

    Sugar dosing experience

    I recently started sugar dosing due to the nitates staying at 25ppm. My tank is several months old and I have cheato and other macro algae in the sump. This is not removing the nitrates as fast people have claimed so I wanted to use an alternative solution. I read it all on different forums...
