    New Bangaii

    Bought an aquacultured bangaii from my LFS today. Its been there with 2 others in a tank for 12 days, so I felt confident enough to buy it (considering the fish in nearby cubicles were also looking healthy). I acclimated it, put it in, and it eats like a pig already. Any helpful tips or...

    Sure Flow Maxijet Mod F/S

    I just bought Algae Free's Sure Flow 1600 mod for the maxijets. My tank being so small, I would have to guess it at least tripled or quadrupled the flow the MJ was putting out before.

Heres my question... 24 gallon tank, 150 watt Sunpod MH. Im keeping zoos and LPS...
