    i got a shark what?

    You probably should have thought about this before you bought the egg. What you want to do now is make sure you have the rights set up. Your going to need 200+ gal tank for a full grown one so make sure your willing to upgrade or have lined up someone to take him when he gets too large. As...

    Lion on eating strike

    This is not too unusual for lions to do so don't be too worried yet. A full grown lion can easily go a week or two with no food. Keep your water right and like you said soak it in garlic, that may help. I doubt hes eating pods, and even if he is he should still want the food yours offering...

    A few Ich questions.

    So it will still provide a biologic filter for my qt? I left the live rock to cure in a bucket for a week then put it into my qt to cycle it. If ich is just transmitted where did it start? Because i kept my lion in a my rubbermade qt for 3 weeks and there were no signs of ich. He was in my...
