    Back from the Beyond

    Here's an interesting and strange tale about my 6line wrasse. My 6line wrasse disappeared from my tank 4 months ago, and all searches for the body turned up empty. I have a 125 gallon tank with a unique sump setup, but nothing has ever escaped the back sump critter so I had completely written...

    Black Brittlestar ( Ophiocomina nigra ) coloration?

    I have what I believe to be a standard black brittlestar but was wondering about the coloration. The pictures I've found on the web show a more brownish star with only the disc being closer to a black color as shown below. The brittle I have is pure black, no brown at all and the spines on the...

    Great LFS, and super deal for me

    Here's one of those rare stories you read but can hardly believe, I guess I'll believe the other posters now. I've been in the market for some MH lights for a while and did my research figureing on getting a 250watt DIY setup that I would build a hood for. My LFS has always been honest with...

    Ooooo, new brittle star hitchhiker! ID please

    Whoopy!! I think I just spotted a small brittle star arm on a new coral. Ophiura, or other seastar knowledgeable people... Is there a black brittlestar which has either yellow or white bands around the arms? The arm I saw was only visible for a second and it did not like the flashlight one bit...

    Test readings, ready for reefing?

    Hi guys, I'm really new to the whole coral thing and would love to hear some thoughts on my readings. I currently have a large hammer coral, several large fuzzy shrooms, and a small zoanthid collony. I'd love to move into more corals but want to make sure everything checks out first. 196.9ppm kh...

It was in the tanks he has up top so I had to get on a stool to see what it was. It was a green brittle star that had to of been 18" or more from tip to tip. Is...

    Mantis quest

    I found this funny, and I've removed the foul language. Hope you all enjoy as much as I did. Hello, dammit. About six-months ago, I walked into the local gym and overheard two fellows having a discussion about something that they kept referring to (albeit in hushed and overawed tones) as...

    ID please, NOT fireworm

    Found this tonight crawling over a snail half way up the tank glass, then saw it go free swimming around the tank. It moves fast while swimming, and has a dark greyish head with four whisker like appendages.

    $5.50 , was I robbed?

    Picked this up at my LFS which has always been real fair to me. Wife says I was robbed and that this is not worth $5.50. I count 2 orange/red and the rest are green/yellow zoos, little chunk of rock is about 2" long.
