    Pleae ID hitchhiker Crab

    Was away for the past four days and came home to this guy sitting in the sand in my 4g nano. Must have came in on some live rock. Questions What type of crab is it, and is it reef safe.

    SKIMMER for NANO TANK - Question.

    Probably the biggest wast of money I have spent on fish supplies. It creates thousands of bubbles and it did'nt even work much at all. 1 to 2 week water changes are a much better option.

    New nano skimmer?

    I unfortunately purchased one before reading all these negative responses. Right now it seems to be working as the cup is filling with some type of gunk. However it is mass producing an abundance of microbubbles. Is there anyway to get rid of them? If they dont go away I will prolly take the...

    Micro Bubbles

    Are micro bubbles harmful to a tank, or just an annoyance. I know they can kill sponges, but do they harm corals such as leathers or other soft corals? Do they bother fish? Thanx

    Check my quarentine

    O no. I didnt paint the bottom. I didnt know i should have. Its to late to paint it now, but is thier something i can put under it like a black cloth? Also, what should I put in there for comfort? I keep the lights in the room off, and try to keep it as dark as possible. Is this a good idea?
