Anyway, i have recently taken over care of a 300g tank at a university and I have been having some issues with the skimmer. This skimmer is a fairly new large Orca brand skimmer...

    Blue Jaw is grumpy

    Ok I have a question about my blue jaw trigger. Over the last few weeks he has been not as active. He is refusing to chase down food anymore, I basically shove dried krill in his face and he'll eat it. He used to ride the current of my powerheads all day, now he hides most of the day. I have...

  7. jaymz = bust?

    Ill suggest it again. Charge a Monthly/Yearly free to sell. KingSnake does it and TONS of ppl sell there. $30/month or $100/Year. If 50 ppl bought a year selling pass thats 5K. I think that makes up for possible loss by ppl selling nickle and dime frags. Have restrictions too, only so many...

    Is My Lfs Cazy Or What?

    Ok i agree with your respnses to my comments. I never said anything about making a profit off of the corals, with all the money spent on electric and supplies while it was growing you would have to charge $1000 a peice to profit. Im talking about making some money back. Obviously the cuttings...

    Is My Lfs Cazy Or What?

    Nemo & Dorey?

    I too used to work at a LFS and i would try to talk people into getting a Fiji blue devil damsel as Dory. Much cheaper and easier to take care of. These fish are hearty and come with an attitude, but nemo (false percula) can handle it. Blue hippos are ich magnets and get large and loose there...

    does anyone have a jbj light

    I have used coralife bulbs in my JBJs they are more easily found than the JBJs. They are the same length. DeathCo carries them.

    What is happening to my blue angel?

    Fish looks healthy, water seems to be in order. Your SG is fine unless you are keeping corals then i would try to raise it to the 1.024-1.026 range I would fare to say your fish is starting its color change to its adult coloration. those white bars will just keep getting wider.

    I have halimeda growing well in my tank an it fades to a really light green everynight after the light go out. I dont think halimeda goes sexual, thats caluerpa.

    If only Frogspawn could talk

    If you have a firend with a good set up, or if you local LFS will hold it for you in the mean time that will help out your FS until you can get the lighting.
