    HELP! New Fish Dying =(

    I am not a newbie really anymore, but I guess I'm just looking for consolation..This happens to everyone at some point I guess. I made an order from SWF a couple days ago, got my shipment today, and after a 30 minute drip acclimation, my Cherub Angel went nuts. I also got a jawfish, but he...

    Tell Me About Possum Wrasses

    Never heard of them before, but I AM getting some nice Christmas money, and my birthday is next month too. I noticed a couple on another site, and it claims their reef-safe. I've never heard of these guys before, but they're really neat looking. Think one would fit in my 29g with a couple...

    Stock My 40g

    Hey guys! I haven't been here in months; over the summer I lost a lot of time to dedicate to the hobby. Anyways, I'm now on my fifth tank since starting last August (all with the help of the SWF peeps), except this one is very special. It is being built in total by myself and my reef club and...

    Stocking a...2.5 gallon??

    Yes, very small I know. It's my fifth tank though, I've got the basics down. I was planning an invert only, with perhaps a yellow clown goby or a yasha hase goby (no shrimp, fearing for the rest of the inverts) but I think it's even too small for the second one, if not the first. I was just...

    Manjano Help

    Well, I don't technically need an ID, but I just read about sprinkling table salt on them to remove it. I have one smack dab in the middle of my zoa frag and I don't want to kalk it in fear of hurting the zoas. Could a few grains of carefully placed salt get rid of the bugger without hurting...

    Misc. Questions. Building a new tank.

    So this will be my fourth tank since starting the hobby in August of '09. Currently I have a 29 gallon mixed reef, a 20 long mixed reef (donated and being kept for research at my high school), and a 10 gallon mantis tank. I'm now of going for a 30 long/breeder Peacock tank. Questions are...

    Calling All Cranberrys [Mantis Idea?]

    So, I've always sorta wanted a frag tank and a Peacock mantis, so why not mix them? Well, because the peacock will try to decorate with the frags and the lighting for the frag growing would bother the peacock, duhhh! Or..maybe not? I was thinking about trying a 40 breeder with a custom stand...

    Help with a new 20 long please?

    Basically I just need some stock help and a bit of info on Cherub/Pigmy Angels (Centropyge argi). This tank will be plumed into a 29 gallon fuge, so that's about fifty gallons of water right? I have a HOB skimmer (SeaClone) on the back of the actual display tank. The fuge is sort of a planted...

    30 Gallon Dwarf Lion Tank?

    Well, it was origionally for a Peacock mantis, but I'm happy having my little Chigara in his ten gallon. ^_^ Don't need another (yet lol), so I'd like to try a dwarf lion! My absolute favorite is the Black Foot one, but that's too big so right behind him on the list is a Dwarf Zebra...

    Starfish Questions

    I havn't actually picked one yet, but I was wondering if you guys could give me a brief overview of the non-reef-safe stars? What makes them not reef-safe? Do they eat inverts, or coral? If coral, what kinds? Is it all, or to they target polyps on SPS, or....? I was thinking about having...

    BTA Time Period Question

    So guess who got the OK (and the funding!) to put up a small saltwater at her school? MOI! =D I'm so excited. Anyways, it'll be a ten gallon because I have a spare laying around and a 20in T5 light, so all I have to do not is find a heater and get 'er up and cycling. I'll be doing this over...

    My first mantis!

    And no, I'm not trying to kill it. XD I was planning on buying a Peacock mantis this summer. I have done the research on them, and have a thirty long upstairs in my room but the dresser needs to be leveled. Dispite reading up on them, just like most critters (no good saltwater places around)...

    Nem ID please

    This isn't in my tank, I found this picture on google, but I'd love to get my hands on one. These things are wild looking! Any idea, guys? Or if they come into the trade at all?

    Brackish Mollies for GHA?

    I always thought seeing mollies in SW tanks just looked plain dumb, but I'm wondering if I should second guess it. I overheard someone at the LFS talking about them being great GHA eaters, but as everyone knows most people in LFSs have no clue what they're talking about. So, just curious, what...
