    propagating for auction...

    i got a colt coral begging for fragging. Do you all think the auctions on this site would be worth the trouble of fragging and shippig a coral. No one has put a frag up yet, so im hesitant to be the first. Any opinions?

    any benefits to algae?

    My trigger tank is full of red and green algae. Its on everything except the front glass thanks to my new magnetic cleaner (the fella who created this should get a nobel prize). I was thinking that maybe the since the algae survives on waste, isnt it keeping my water cleaner? Or am i retarded?

    Copepods: sign of a good tank?

    I have a mini reef that has a bunch of them after two weeks of setup, and a 43 gallon fowlr (niger and huma trigger) that finally has some. Does that mean things are going good?

    Help! I moved my maroon clown out of my trigger tank because he was getting picked on. I caught him with a net, and one of his cheek spines got caught in it. I got him out after a struggle, he seems to be doing fine, but the spines are sticking out. Is this normal, has anyone had any experience...

    Mini Reef Trouble...

    Im starting a mini reef in my 12 gallon eclipse, but i cant seem to get the temperature below 81-82 degrees. All i have in there now are some polyps and mushrooms, but im scared to get anything else. Will this temp be a problem for me? Bio Load=1 mandarin, 1 perc clown, and a clean up crew.

    Just an observation...

    Okay...We all bought Live Sand, and we all bought Live Rock. Why did we do this? Because it has good bacteria. Biological filtration that makes it easier on the little fishies we all love. But since an aluminum can on live sand and rock can become "live" after a time, why do we buy it from these...

    Would this be a sand scam?

    Now i know everyone is up in arms about this neil guy, so am i. He is a bad man. But lets say he had been using home depot sand and mixing it in live sand for a period of time to make it live. Would it still be a scam? Now if your anything like me, you spent a buttload of money on live sand when...
