    cube question

    Anyone have any tips/suggestions for keeping your fish and inverts in the main tank in the bio-cubes? How about tricks for getting the fish and critters out safely?

    So I went looking in the back compartments of my bio-cube for my missing goby. Bad news is he wasn't there. Good news is I did find a thought to be dead sexy shrimp. Bad news is I lost the little bugger while trying to catch it. Still clinging to a glimmer of hope my goby is just taking an...

    Will it pump again? (Xenia)

    HI all! I picked up a xenia yesterday that was pumping at the LFS. It stopped once bagged and still has not resumed. I tried shutting off the powerheads for about 30 minutes to see if there is just too much flow but nothing happened. My pH is 8.3-8.4 and the tank gets iodine in the form of...

    Hey Wax!

    OK, so here is the latest..... Have you had any experience with anemones? Love em or hate em? In your opinion do anemone shrimp HAVE to be hosted by an anemone? Would you keep a Jawfish and an anemone in the same tank? (I am thinking no) Just wanted to pick your brain.

    I think my new frogspawn reproduced asexually??

    I recently added a frogspawn to my tank (less than one week ago) and this morning I noticed a bright green bud of some sort in the live rock on the other side of the tank. I am totally confused by this. I also added MH lights last week so at first though it something re-growing on the live...
